Bordasia bicornis Krapov.
Malvaceae Info (Home)
Bordasia is a recently described monotypic genus [a] recorded from Paraguay . The generic name honours E.E. Bordas, one of the collecting team.
Details of the plant are not conveniently available, and I am therefore unable to describe its morphology. However, I have seen the abstracts for the two papers [a, b] on this taxon, which indicate that it is related to Sida, and I hence I can identify its taxomomic position as being within subtribe Abutilinae. The specific name refers to the fruit morphology.
