Huberantha, a replacement name for Hubera (Annonaceae: Malmeoideae: Miliuseae)- Tanawat Chaowasku, David M. Johnson, Raymond W. J. M. van der Ham & Lars W. Chatrou- KEW BULLETIN (2015) 70: 23-
Summary. A replacement generic name, Huberantha Chaowasku, is proposed for the recently described genus Hubera Chaowasku segregated from Polyalthia Blume because the name Hubera has been recommended to be treated as a later homonym of Huberia DC. (Melastomataceae) by the nomenclature committee for vascular plants. Consequently, new combinations of twenty-seven species presently recognised are made under Huberantha.

Abstract– The genus Hubera Chaowasku in Chaowasku et al. (2012) was established in accordance with strict monophyly based on a molecular phylogenetic analysis and morphological characters; the component species were previously considered members of the polyphyletic genus Polyalthia Blume s.l. (1830 : 68). Chaowasku, however, later felt that the genus name Hubera was too similar to Huberia DC (1828 : 167; Melastomataceae) and asked the nomenclature committee for vascular plants if it should be treated as a later homonym of Huberia DC. (Chaowasku 2013). His request was accepted by the nomenclature committee for vascular plants (Applequist 2014). Subsequently, Chaowasku replaced the generic name Hubera with a new name Huberantha and also made new combinations for all 27 species of that genus (Chaowasku et al. 2015). A new species that was recently published under Hubera (Muralidharan et al. 2015) is here transferred to Huberantha.

If you find any mis-identification, pl. let us know.
If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), it will be really nice. Also, if anybody is interested to take up the activity of inserting images on efloraofindia pages from efloraofindia posts, pl. let us know.
Subject is changing very fast! Hubera is now Huberanthera. I will attach a PDF at night.
Hubera is declared to be a later homonym. Hence the new name for the genus is Huberantha. Please find attached the publication for kind necessary action and modification of the page.
As per the attached paper as above, there are three species of Huberantha in India. In addition, I have the following reference of another species in India (no PDF available with me).

Thanks, … I have made the changes accordingly.
