DETTKE, Greta A.  and  WAECHTER, Jorge L.. Generic identity of Phoradendron rusbyi: Viscaceae) and a new record for Argentina. Darwiniana [online]. 2012, vol.50, n.1, pp.148-153. ISSN 0011-6793.

During a review of herbaria in Argentina we found a specimen of Phoradendron rusbyi, which represents the third collection of the species and a new record for the flora of Argentina. This species is a little aphyllous plant, being a member of the group of hyperparasitic mistletoes, and was found in a mixed collection, parasitizing Phoradendron bathyoryctum. A morphological description of the species is provided, and its inclusion in Phoradendron confirmed.

Keywords : Argentina; Flora; Mistletoes; Phoradendron; Viscaceae.
