DIOSCOREACEAE.  Strike out the final sentence in the discussion of Dioscorea convolvulacea Schltdl. & Cham.  While it is true that Hammel et al. 18083 had been determined in TROPICOS as “Dioscorea aff. liebmannii Mart. ex Griseb.” by Oswaldo Téllez (1992), one of the authors of the cited Flora mesamericana Dioscoreaceae treatment, no Costa Rican voucher was provided for D. liebmannii in that work, nor was Costa Rica mentioned anywhere in connection with said sp.  Furthermore, D. liebmannii is by no means restricted to Mexico, extending southward to northern Nicaragua and (apparently) occurring disjunctly in eastern Panama; indeed, it should perhaps have been mentioned (in the Manual genus discussion) as a sp. that might be expected in Costa Rica!  See under “Leaps and Bounds” for additional enlightenment.
