Abstract

This paper makes necessary taxonomic and nomenclatural adjustments prior to publication of the account of Convolvulaceae for the Flora of Thailand. Two new species of Argyreia Lour., A. variabilis Traiperm & Staples and A. leucantha Traiperm & Staples, are described and illustrated. The first reports of 13 species in Argyreia, Ipomoea L., Merremia Dennst. ex Endl., Dichondra Forst. &
Forst.f., and Cuscuta L. are documented for the Thai flora. Four taxonomic and nomenclatural problems are resolved so that the names and species concepts are clear for the flora account; these include four new combinations and six reductions to synonymy. Voucher specimens are cited to document the new species and the new distribution records for Thailand reported here.
