Monographs Details: Campsiandra
Authority: Maguire, Bassett, et al. 1953. The Botany of the Guayana Highland. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 8 (2): 87-160.
Discussion:Several collections of this genus were made and efforts toward their identification were quite unsatisfactory in the published literature; it therefore seemed profitable to undertake an introductory study of the genus. Besides the materials which are deposited in the Herbarium of the New York Botanical Garden (NY), the collections in the U. S. National Herbarium (US), including one type, were borrowed and studied. To this organization and particularly to E. P. Killip, I wish to express my appreciation for this cooperation.
