Not all members of the International Cichorieae Network do have access to botanical libraries. As a service we would like to point to recent publications regarding Cichorieae. However, some articles will escape our attention. Therefore, your hints to recent publications are always welcome.

Güzel M. E., Coşkunçelebi K., Kilian N., Makbul S. & Gültepe M. 2021: Phylogeny and systematics of the Lactucinae (Asteraceae) focusing on their SW Asian centre of diversity. – Pl. Syst. Evol. 307, 7: 1-14.

Abstract
“This study provides the first comprehensive molecular phylogenetic reconstruction of the lettuce alliance (Cichorieae subtribe Lactucinae of the sunflower family) in its SW Asia centre of diversity and assumed area of origin. The sampling contains multiple samples of all SW Asian Lactucinae except four unavailable rare taxa. One nuclear ribosomal and five plastid DNA markers were used for the reconstruction with maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference. A total of 716 individual sequences belonging to 56 taxa were newly generated. The nrDNA and plastid DNA gene trees show several hard topological incongruences at various levels of the trees, which make it very likely that the evolution of the subtribe was shaped by events of ancient and more recent reticulation, chloroplast capture and incomplete lineage sorting. The taxonomic conclusions from the phylogenetic analysis are drawn, and a revised inventory of the subtribe in SW Asia including new combinations and synonymies are provided."

Chen Y.-S., Xu l.-S., Ke R., Harris A. & Li H.-M. 2021: Lihengia: A new genus of Asteraceae distinct from Dubyaea. – Taxon, https://doi.org/10.1002/tax.12428

Abstract
“A new genus, Lihengia, is established for two species presently treated within Dubyaea, which is proved to be paraphyletic in the present study, even after exclusion of Lihengia. Dubyaea is a genus of about 15 species endemic to the Sino‐Himalayan region that are treated within subtribe Crepidinae of tribe Cichorieae within Asteraceae. Stebbins suggested that Dubyaea may contain species representing direct ancestors of several widerspread genera in tribe Cichorieae, thus making phylogenetic reconstruction challenging. We tested the monophyly of Dubyaea using a molecular phylogeny reconstructed from ITS and five plastid fragment sequences (petD, psbA‐trnH, 5′trnL(UAA)trnF, rpl32‐trnL(UAG), trnQ(UUG)‐5′rps16) and sampling comprising Dubyaea and related species within the tribe Cichorieae. We resolved Dubyaea species within at least two separate clades of tribe Cichorieae. Most species of Dubyaea occurred in subtribe Crepidinae, while Dubyaea sect. Amoena was placed in subtribe Lactucinae. Based on our findings, we erect Lihengia as a new genus to accommodate the species of D. sect. Amoena, and, consequently, we propose two new combinations. We discuss the morphological and cytological support for the new genus."

Gottschlich G. & Brandstätter G. 2021: On the identity of Hieracium garibaldianum (Asteraceae). – Phytotaxa 479: 250–256.

Abstract
“The rediscovery of Hieracium garibaldianum in the Napoli region (Italy) where its type was originally collected, allowed us to compare it with a drawing of the holotype which was made by Fries. As a result, H. garibaldianum is placed in the synonymy of H. racemosum subsp. crinitum."

Gottschlich G. 2020: Ergebnisse von Herbar-, Feld- und Literaturstudien zur Gattung Hieracium s. l. (Hieracium s. str. und Pilosella) als Vorarbeiten für die „Neue Flora von Bayern“. – Ber. Bayer. Bot. Ges. 90: 129–146.

Abstract
“Preliminary results of studies of herbarium material, field work and literature concerning the account of Hieracium s.l. (Hieracium s.str. and Pilosella) for the „Flora of Bayern project“ are presented. The results are related to new taxonomical positions, nomenclatural changes, validations of names, changes in author designations as well as new records or cancellations of records for Bavaria and the description of a new subspecies (Hieracium onosmoides subsp. alcmanae)."

Gottschlich G. 2020: Revision des Herbarmaterials der Gattung Hieracium s. l. (Hieracium s. str. & Pilosella, Asteraceae) im Übersee-Museum Bremen (BREM). – Abh. Naturwiss. Vereins Bremen 47: 785–807.

Abstract
“In the years from 2012 to 2018 nearly 2400 Hieracium specimens in the herbarium of the Übersee-Museum in Bremen (BREM) were revised. They belong to 238 species (161 species to subgenus Hieracium, 77 species to subgenus Pilosella). The collection is rich in exsiccatae. Lists of species, collectors, exsiccates, and of the geographical origin are provided. The chronological origin of the collections is disaggregated and imbedded into the historical context. The Hieracium-collection includes 79 type specimens, most of them (70) belonging as syntypes to exsiccatae. The names of 7 taxa, among them 5 of specimens collected in Albania, are lectotypified. Two new combinations are made: H. glabratum subsp. acrovillosum (Nägeli & Peter) Gottschl. and H. hypochoeroides subsp. medelingense (Wiesb. ex Dichtl) Gottschl."

Safavi S. R. & Amini Rad M. 2020: Scorzonera alborzensis, a new species of subgen. Scorzonera sect. Nervosae (Asteraceae) from Iran. – Iran. J. Bot. 26: 93–99.

Abstract
“A new species of Scorzonera (subgen. Scorzonera sect. Nervosae Lipsch.) is described and illustrated. Scorzonera alborzensis Safavi & Amini Rad collected from Siah Sang mountain in Central Alborz. It is related to the Scorzonera cinerea Boiss., in which it can be distinguished by the stems form and size, leaves size and arrangement, involucral bracts size, and achene size. An illustration and a scanned image of the type specimen of the new species are provided."
