Abstract

Senecio helianthemoides Wedd. is transferred to the genus Chersodoma Phil. on the basis of its functionally dioecious breeding system and rounded, papillose-style branches. The new combination C. helianthemoides (Wedd.) J. Calvo & M. Zárate is published, and the recently published name C. tarijensis M. Zárate is synonymized with it.
