Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Velloziaceae are represented in Peru by one genus, Barbaceniopsis, and one shrubby species (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993). Here we recognize this species as endemic; it grows in shrublands of interandean valleys of the Mesoandean region, between 2100 and 2900 m elevation. It has not been reported to date from a Peruvian protected area.
