[Botany • 2018] A New Annonaceae Genus, Wuodendron, Provides Support for A post-Boreotropical Origin of the Asian-Neotropical Disjunction in the tribe Miliuseae


Wuodendron  B.Xue, Y.H.Tan & Chaowasku 
Wuodendron praecox  
(Hook.f. & Thomson) B.Xue, Y.H.Tan & X.L.Hou

in Xue, Tan, Thomas, Chaowasku, Hou & Saunders, 2018. 

Abstract

Recent molecular and morphological studies have clarified generic circumscriptions in Annonaceae tribe Miliuseae and resulted in the segregation of disparate elements from the previously highly polyphyletic genus Polyalthia s.l. Several names in Polyalthia nevertheless remain unresolved, awaiting assignment to specific genera, including Polyalthia litseifolia. Phylogenetic analyses of seven chloroplast regions (atpB-rbcL, matK, ndhF, psbA-trnH, rbcL, trnL-F, ycf1; ca. 8.3 kb, 116 accessions, including representatives of all currently accepted genera in subfamily Malmeoideae) unambiguously placed Polyalthia litseifolia in a clade with three accessions from Thailand, which have previously been shown to represent an undescribed genus sister to the Neotropical clade (Desmopsis, Sapranthus, Stenanona, Tridimeris) in the predominantly Asian tribe Miliuseae. The collective clade is sister to Meiogyne. Polyalthia litseifolia shares several diagnostic characters with most species in the Neotropical genera and Meiogyne, including: petals that are similar in shape and size in both whorls; multiple ovules per ovary in one or two rows; and lamelliform endosperm ruminations. It is distinct in being deciduous, bearing subpetiolar buds and having inflorescences growing from the leaf scar of the dropped leaves. Morphological comparisons and phylogenetic analyses corroborate its recognition as a new genus, which is formally described and illustrated here as Wuodendron. Polyalthia litseifolia is furthermore found to be conspecific with Desmos praecox, and the latter name is used as the basis for the name of the type. Molecular divergence time estimates under an uncorrelated lognormal relaxed clock place the Wuodendron-Neotropical clade split within the Miocene (ca. 14–12 Ma), highlighting the importance of post-boreotropical dispersal and vicariance in shaping intercontinental tropical disjunctions in Annonaceae.

Tan 12258, HITBC); I, Young fruit, showing the infructescence and the branchlet growing from the same axil (Nakorn-Thiemchan NTC23, CMUB); J, Mature fruit; K, Monocarps, showing slight constrictions between seeds, and multiple seeds in one row in one monocarp (Y.H. Tan 10946, HITBC); L, Cylindrical seeds, showing the distinct circumferential groove; and the longitudinal section of the seed, showing lamelliform endosperm rumination (Y.H. Tan 10946, HITBC).



TAXONOMY 
Following detailed examination of protologues and specimens, we did not find any evidence to uphold both the poorly known Desmos praecox and Polyalthia litseifolia as distinct species. The basionym Unona praecox antedates P. litseifolia and hence its specific epithet has priority.

Wuodendron B.Xue, Y.H.Tan & Chaowasku, gen. nov.
– Type: W. praecox (Hook.f. & Thomson) B.Xue, Y.H.Tan & X.L.Hou 
(≡ Unona praecox Hook.f. & Thomson).


Diagnosis. – Wuodendron resembles the closely related genera Desmopsis, Meiogyne, Sapranthus, Stenanona and Tridimeris, with which it shares petals that are more or less similar in shape and size in both whorls and the multi-ovuled ovaries; Wuodendron differs, however, in having subpetiolar buds and inflorescences growing from the axils of the circular leaf scars where old leaves have fallen.

Distribution. – A single species, known from China, India, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam; as well as in Cambodia and Laos (Hong Wang, pers. comm.).

Etymology. – Named after Wu Zhengyi (= C.Y. Wu, of the Kunming Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences), who proposed the name of Polyalthia litseifolia, in honor of his great contribution to plant taxonomy.

    1. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr AKHERE and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: AKHERETEMPLE@gmail.com
