A conspectus of Indo-Burmese Annonaceae by I. M. Turner- Nordic Journal of Botany 33: 257–299, 2015–
A list of the Annonaceae taxa native to the Indo-Burmese Region is presented. Species are listed with synonyms and types, and the regional distribution is given by country (India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Burma). In total, 195 species from 28 genera are listed. Two new combinations, Monoon nitidum (A. DC.) I. M. Turner and Polyalthia malabarica (Bedd.) I. M. Turner, are included. Polyalthia corticosa (Pierre) Finet & Gagnep. is considered the correct name for P. obliqua in India and Bangladesh. Artabotrys cubittii Chatterjee is reduced to a synonym of A. burmanicus A. DC. Two new records for Burma, Polyalthia bullata King and Uvaria hahnii (Finet & Gagnep.) J. Sinclair, are presented.

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) pages on Annonaceae & its genera pages along with incorporating species found in India subcontinent as per A synopsis on distribution and endemism of Magnoliaceae s.l. in Indian Subcontinent by SUBIR RANJAN KUNDU.
Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the page in the form of links against Subpages. On clicking them one can see all the details.
Any comments/ corrections are welcome.
Thanks Dr. Kundu for the wonder document.
The document provided by Dr Kundu for Annonaceae is really important. However, another more recent checklist of Annonaceae is also available from BSI-

FLOWERING PLANTS OF INDIA, DICOTYLEDONS, Vol-I (Acanthaceae-Avicenniaceae) authored by S. Karthikeyan, M. Sanjappa and S. Moorthy and published by BSI, Kolkata in 2009 is an important document for names, authority and distribution of Annonaceae species in India.
As per this document (Karthikeyan et al., 2009) following genera (with number of known species) of Annonaceae occur in India:
1- Alphonsea (5 species)
2- Anaxagorea (2 species)
3- Annona (5 species)
4- Artabotrys (7 species)
5- Cananga (1 cultivated species)
6- Cyathocalyx (2 species)
7- Cyathostemma (3 species)
8- Desmos (8 species)
9- Fissistigma (9 species)
10- Friesodielsia (3 species)
11- Goniothalamus (11 species)
12- Meiogyne (2 species)
13- Mezzettia (1 species)
14- Miliusa (18 species)
15- Mitrephora (5 species)
16- Orophea (12 species)
17- Ohaeanthus (1 species)
18- Polyalthia (18 species)
19- Popowia (3 species)
20- Pseuduvaria (2 species)
21- Sageraea (5 species)
22- Trivalvaria (3 species)
23- Uvaria (13 species)
24- Xylopia (1 species)
Based on the above the family Annonaceae is represented by 24 (one cultivated) genera and 140 (one cultivated) species in India. New species described after 2009 (Friesodielsia sahyadrica & Miliusa gohkalaei) are also included in this count.
Two genera (Bocagea and Unona) listed in Kundu (2006) are not known by any species in India. Bocagea thwaitesii occur in India but now correctly known as Sageraea thwaitesii.

As no response from .., may I request … to pl. assist on annonaceae during this fortnight.
I would be happy to help during the Annonaceae fortnight
I have added updated list of genera (with number of known species) of Annonaceae in India based on Karthikeyan et al. (2009) and references in this thread.
Updated eFI (efloraofindia) pages on Annonaceae, its genera & species’ pages : 1 post by 1 author.
On clicking them one can see all the details.
Any comments/ corrections are welcome.
Species & genera pages of Annonaceae are now with image : 1 post by 1 author.
Species & genera pages of Annonaceae in efloraofindia are now with images.
It involves inserting images on around 40 species pages (say around 120 images) & 20 genera pages. It also involved a lot of cleansing work like deletion of duplicate / wrong pages, correctly identify some of the threads, putting them at their proper place, proper formatting of the species pages etc.
I request our members to pl. take up one family each & try to make efloraofindia more constructive. We will be rendering what ever assistance is required by the members, in this matter.
