Rhododendron multiflorum (Menziesia ciliicalyx)


Rhododendron multiflorum (Menziesia ciliicalyx) (?) En plante slægt som udfra DNA studier(ITS) er tættere på Rhododendron end R. camtchaticum (H. Eiberg 1997, 1999), og burde derfor høre til Rhododendron slægten. Også DNA undersøgelser af andre gener (Goetsch et al. 2005) har vist at denne slægt hører til Rhododendron. Den bør have sin egen sub. genus. I Flora of China er den endnu ikke placeret i slægten. H. Eiberg
Looks like a dwarf R. keysii
Ikke i ARS og Flora of China

Hans Eiberg showed by DNA studies of ITS and MATK, already in 1997 and 1999 that Menzeisia belongs to the Rhododendron genus if R. camtschaticum does

Craven, L.A. (2011). Diplarche and Menziesia transferred to Rhododendron (Ericaceae). Blumea 56: 33-35. Abstract: The genera Diplarche and Menziesia have been shown to be nested in Rhododendron based upon cladistic analyses of DNA data. Morphologically, the differences between Diplarche and Menziesia are not so great that their inclusion in Rhododendron is inappropriate and the species of these two genera are formally transferred to Rhododendron. The following new names are proposed: Rhododendron benhallii, R. chamberlainii, R. goyozanense, R. × kamatae, R. katsumatae, R. kroniae, R. menziesii, R. menziesii subsp. glabellum, R. multiflorum, R. multiflorum forma bicolor, R. multiflorum forma brevicalyx, R. multiflorum var. purpureum, R. pentandrum, R. pilosum, R. sophistarum, R. yakushimense.
