Fernández E, Ferreras I, Farrell BD, de Medeiros BAS, Romero-González GA. Studies in Aristolochia (Aristolochiaceae) of Hispaniola. Phytotaxa [Internet]. 2019;420 :1-20.


A review of the literature at large and the field photographic record of the senior author of this study indicate that there are several undescribed species of Aristolochia in Hispaniola (Dominican Republic and Haiti), related to A. bilobata. Here we show that A. mirandae is a synonym of A. bilobata and that what appears as A. bilobata in Marión H. (2011: 76–77) is a new species here described as Aristolochia adiastola. In addition, two new species, A. bonettiana and A. marioniana, also related to A. bilobata, are described and illustrated herein.
