Note
Moquin-Tandon (1849b) used two specimens collected by Skinner when describing Tandonia ramosa (cited as "Kinner ... v.s. in h. Hook. et Webb"). The one in K was designated as lectotype by Eriksson (1996). Anredera ramosa is a polymorphic and incompletely known species, which nevertheless is easily recognised by its gibbous sepals. The perianth dries black after anthesis and tightly encloses the fruit, which indicate that this species belong to the same group as A. aspera, A. brachystachys, A. diffusa, and A. marginata. It is here treated with two subspecies, but future studies may show that a further subdivision at this level is justified.
Type
Guatemala, Skinner s.n. (lectotype K!, designated by Eriksson 1996: 81; isolectotype probably FI; isolectotype G-DC, microfiche GB!; isolectotype P-Moq., photo GB!).
