NICOLA, MARCELA V. On the identity of the new family Pycnanthaceae Ravenna. Gayana Bot. [online]. 2012, vol.69, n.2, pp.360-364. ISSN 0717-6643.

The taxonomic position of a new family of flowering plants recently described, Pycnanthaceae Ravenna, is here discussed; as a result of comparison of type material, this new taxon is placed in the synonymy of the genus Malaxis within the Orchidaceae. A list of species of Malaxis growing in Argentina is provided, as well as a key to differentiate them.

Keywords : Argentina; Malaxis; Orchidaceae; Pycnantha; taxonomy.
