Abstract

The Melastomataceae collected by Giuseppe Raddi (1770-1829) during his expedition to Brazil (1817-1818) and housed at FI and PI are studied. The collections typify names in the genera Bertolonia Raddi, Leandra Raddi, Melastoma L. and Rhexia L. For 22 species we provide information about types, nomenclature, taxonomy and geographical distribution.
