Abstract:

<p>Austinia, a new genus of Convolvulaceae is described and its relationship with other genera is discussed. Two species previously placed in Jacquemontia are referable to the genus. However, a revision of species delimitation demonstrates that the two are conspecific. Austinia therefore comprises a single species, endemic to Brazil.</p>
