Bejaria Mutis in Linnaeus. Tarflower.

A genus of 15 species, shrubs and trees, of se. United States to Cuba, and from Mexico south into Bolivia. The spelling of the generic name has been controversial; it was originally published as ‘Befaria’, because of Linnaeus's misreading of Mutis's handwriting, but was intended to commemorate José Béjar. The spelling has now been conserved as ‘Bejaria’ (Greuter et al. 2000).
