Abstract

Cistanthe arenaria (Cham.) Carolin ex Hershk. is a species of Montiaceae distributed from
Chile’s Maule to Araucanía Regions. But the name historically and currently has been applied also to
readily distinct species distributed from the Libertador Bernardo O’Higgins to Coquimbo Regions: C.
chamissoi (Barnéoud) Carolin ex Hershk., C. trigona (Bertero ex Colla) Carolin ex Hershk, C. vicina
(Phil.) Carolin ex Hershk., and C. subverticillata (Phil.), ined. (≡ Calandrinia subverticillata Phil.). The
source of this confusion traces to two 1833 works by Hooker & Arnott and Lindley. Here, the taxonomy
and diagnostic characteristics of these species are clarified.
