Fryxellia, a new genus of North American Malvaceae

  • David M. Bates


A monotypic genus,Fryxellia Bates (Malvaceae: Malveae), is described; the description of the type species,Fryxellia pygmaea (Correll) Bates from northern Mexico (Coahuila) and Texas, is amplified. Consideration is given to the relationship ofFryxellia to other genera, especiallyAnoda Cav.,Horsfordia A. Gray, andGaya H.B.K., the latter with particular reference toG. violacea Rose.
