Eremanthus rivularis Taub., Bot. Jahrb. Syst. 21: 453 (1896) = Pycnocephalum angustifolium (Gardner) MacLeish

Eremanthus rondoniensis MacLeish & Schumacher, Syst. Bot. 9(1): 89 (1984). Type: Brazil, Rondnia, Vilhena, 1316'S, 5852'W, 18 Apr 1977, Bartel and Silva s.n.f'. Holotype: RB. Note: MacLeish (1987: 275) suggested that this species was in fact collected in Mato Grosso, not Rondnia as suggested on the collecting label.

Bolivia (Santa Cruz), Brazil.

Note: An examination of Mostacedo et al. 1719 in USZ, determined by Robinson, in duplicate, as Eremanthus rivularis Taub., has shown it is best referred to E. rondoniensis. However, the determination of Mostacedo et al. 1719 in Killeen & Schulenberg (1998: 240) suggests a mixed collection, as it is determined as both E. rondoniensis and E. rivularis. As a result an entry for Pycnocephalum angustifolium (Gardner) Macleish has been added to the present checklist as it is not unlikely that this species is also present in Bolivia.
