Title:Main Title: Atriplex retusa, the correct name for A. deserticola (Chenopodiaceae; Amaranthaceae sensu APG)
Description:Abstract: The genus Atriplex comprises about 300 species distributed mainly in subtropical, temperate, and subarctic regions of the world and is mostly adapted to dry conditions on often saline soils. The genus is highly diverse in Eurasia, Australia and North America. South America is another centre of diversity with ca. 55 species, 45 of which are considered as native ca. 20 ssp are found in the Atacama. A recent and exhaustive taxonomical synopsis of Atriplex for South America was published by Brignone et al. (2016), but there are also regional taxonomic revisions, e.g., for Chile by Rosas (1989), or Argentina by Múlgura de Romero (1981, 1982 & 1984). We discuss the uncertainty regarding the names for Atriplex deserticola and A. retusa. The fact that both names describe the same taxon has been previously shown by Rosas (1989), and Brignone et al. (2016). Based on the principle of priority, we accept the name Atriplex retusa and place the currently used name A. deserticola in synonymy.
