Editorial Note

We have published this stub genus article in 2023 as part of a wider reorganisation of Podocarpaceae articles, to enable a new revision of Podocarpus to be published in 2023. The only species presently treated here is Pectinopitys ferruginea, based on Grimshaw & Bayton (2009).

TC, January 2023.

Described in 2019 to accommodate six of the nine species formerly (and somewhat uncomfortably) placed in Prumnopitys: Pectinopitys exigua (de Laub.) C.N.Page (distributed in Bolivia); Pectinopitys ferruginea (G.Benn. ex D.Don) C.N.Page (New Zealand); P. ferruginoides (Compton) C.N.Page (New Caledonia); Pectinopitys harmsiana (Pilg.) C.N.Page (NW South America); Pectinopitys ladei (F.M.Bailey) C.N.Page (NE Queensland, Australia) and Pectinopitys standleyi (J.Buchholz & N.E.Gray) C.N.Page (Costa Rica) (Page 2019).
