The last “generic” frontier of New World Gesneriaceae: the phylogenetic placement of Cremospermopsis, Lampadaria, and Resia.

            Only three genera from the New World members of the Gesneriaceae have not been evaluated in a phylogenetic context. These genera are Cremospermopsis, Lampadaria, and Resia. Recent fieldwork in Guayana, Colombia, and Ecuador facilitated the collection and study of these three genera. Molecular sequence data were generated from nuculear (ITS and ETS) and chloroplast (trnL-F) markers. Phylogenetic analysis from parsimony and Bayesian inference were used to evaluate the phylogenetic placement of these three genera.
