Remarks

doi:10.11646/phytotaxa.266.1.3 the specific epithet “via-incaica” makes reference to the “Camino del Inca” (literally “Inca Trail”), a system of roads that extensively articulated the Tawantinsuyu (territories dominated by the Inca Empire), extending north to Colombia, and south to the central regions of Chile and Argentina
