“Expansion of Diplopterys at the Expense of Banisteriopsis (Malpighiaceae)”. 
Harvard Papers in Botany. 2006;11(1):1-16.
Phylogenetic analyses of molecular and morphological data have shown the genus Banisteriopsis to be polyphyletic and the genus Diplopterys to be nested within Banisteriopsis subg. Pleiopterys, which is not in the clade that contains the type of the name Banisieriopsis. Therefore, it is necessary to take up the name Diplopterys for the small genus formerly called that plus subg. Pleiopterys of Bamsteriopsis. A description of the amplified genus Diplopterys is provided, two new species are described (D. bahiana and D. carvalhoi), and the following new combinations in Diplopterys are proposed, with all combinations by W. R. Anderson and C. Cav. Davis: D. amplectens, D. cachimbensis, D. caduciflora, D. cristata, D. erianthera, D. heterostyla, D. hypericifolia, D. krukoffii, D. leiocarpa, D. longialata, D. lucida, D. lutea. D. nigrescens, D. nutans, D. patula, D. peruviana, D. plalyptera, D. populifolia, D. pubipetala, D. rondoniensis, D. schunkei, D. septum,D. valvata, D. virgultosa, and D. woytkowskii. Illustrations are provided for the D. bahiana, D. cabrerana, D. carvalhoi, D. pauciflora, D. pubipetala, and D. valvata.
