PUPPO, PAMELA  y  NOVOA, PATRICIO. Revision of section Calceolaria (Calceolariaceae) in Chile. Gayana Bot. [online]. 2012, vol.69, n.2, pp.275-285. ISSN 0717-6643.

ABSTRACT Calceolaria is characterized by its bilabiate generally yellow flowers with the lower lip saccate and two stamens. Section Calceolaria has near 10 species all herbaceous and hygrophilous with a particular staminal morphology. The thecae are dimorphic and the connective is elongated in various ways. In Chile, only two species of this section, C. pinnata and C. tripartita, were known from the different flora publications since the 18th century. Moreover, the use of invalid species names such as C. scabiosifolia Roem. & Schult. contributed to the misidentification of the material of this section, further complicating its taxonomy. The aim of the present work is to make the first revision of the species of this section present in Chile as well as presenting a thorough revision of the literature that makes reference to them. A key for the species identification is included as well as descriptions, illustrations, comments on their distribution, and their conservation status in the country according to the IUCN methodology.

Palabras clave : Scrophulariaceae; water calceolarias; capachitos; IUCN.
