Discussion:

Micropaegma cupulatum "(Splitg.)" M. Pichon, Bull. Soc. Bot. Fr. 92:225- 1945.

Hitherto known only from British Guiana and Suriname. The fruits and seeds of this genus are still unknown.

M. Pichon's new genus Micropaegma is unfortunately abortive, as its type species is M. "brachycalyx (Klotz.)" Pichon, based on Bignonia brachycalyx Klotzsch = Anemopaegma brachycalyx Bur. & K. Schum. That species, as I showed many years ago, in Rec. Trav. Bot. Neerl. 34:216, 218 (1937), is conspecific with Mussatia prieurei (DC.) Bur. ex K. Schum. At the same time (p.222), I showed that Anemopaegma cupulatum Bur. & K. Schum., as to their description, was identical with Potamoganos microcalyx, its queried basonym, Bignonia cupulata Splitg., being a synonym of Petastoma patelliferum (Schl.) Miers.
