Arenaria L. (Caryophyllaceae) in Chile
Keywords:Angiosperms, vascular flora of South America, Nueva Flora de Chile
Arenaria L. sensu lato is a genus of Caryophyllaceae of which around 100 species are known, distributed on all continents. The existence of four species of the genus Arenaria (Caryophyllaceae) for the vascular flora of Chile, three native and one introduced, is reported, thus reducing the historical number of names referring to this genus and accepting A. digyna Schltdl. A. rivularis Phil., A. serpens Kunth and A. serpyllifolia L., as currently accepted. New synonyms are proposed: A. microphylla Naudin, A. oligosperma Naudin, Arenaria pleurantha Phil., A. cordillerana Iamonico and A. philippii Iamonico, all of them are treated as A. serpens Kunth.
