English with bilingual summaries in English and Spanish. Ecuador is perhaps the South American country with the richest flora on a per area basis with maybe 20,000 or so species.

In part 61 the Ecuadorian members of Dilleniaceae are revised. Five genera with twenty species are treated. Key, descriptions, and specimen citations are given for all taxa.

In part 64 the Ecuadorian members of the Caryocaraceae are revised. Six species in two genera are known from Ecuador. Keys to genera and species are presented along with information on distribution, ecology, vernacular names and uses for some species. Photos of selected species are provided.

In part 66 a taxonomic treatment of the Quiinaceae of Ecuador is presented including nomenclature, descriptions, specimen citations and identification keys. In Ecuador, Quiinaceae comprise three genera: Froesia (1 sp.), Lacunaria (3 spp.), and Quiina (9 spp.). One species, Quiina zamorensis, is endemic to Ecuador.

Part 185A treats Caprifoliaceae, which are represented in Ecuador by one naturalized species, Lonicera japonica, which is here described, illustrated and lectotypified.

In part 185B the Adoxaceae of Ecuador are revised. Two genera, Sambucus (with two species) and Viburnum (with eight species) are treated. Keys are provided for all taxa, genera and species are fully described, and specimen citations are given. Most species are illustrated.

In part 186B the Ecuadorian members of the Dipsacaceae are revised. The family is only represented by two cultivated species, Dipsacus sativus (L.) Honck. and Scabiosa atropurpurea L. The former seems to be naturalized, and is described, illustrated, and lecto- and epitypified.
