dc.description.abstract Resia and Cremospermopsis are two small genera that are known from less than 50 collections. Recent fieldwork in Ecuador has resulted in the discovery of Resia outside of Colombia, which greatly expands its geographic distribution. The geographic range of Cremospermopsis was also recently expanded by the discovery of a population in northern Peru. A phylogenetic analysis was generated from nuclear (ITS & ETS) and chloroplast (matKR & trnL-F) markers. The present study includes the most comprehensive taxon sampling for the tribe Beslerieae. Results from this research strongly support that Cremospermopsis is the sister group to Cremosperma and nests in the subtribe Besleriinae. Resia is weakly supported in a clade with Anetanthus, Shuaria, and Tylopsacas, in the subtribe Anetanthinae.
