Numerical Phenetic Analysis of the Polymorphic species Hybanthus enneaspermus (L.) F. Muell. in Tropical East Africa.

Hybanthus enneaspermus (L.) F. Muell. (Violaceae) is a small, polymorphic herb, commonly found on roadsides and other disturbed areas throughout much of the Old World Tropics. Because of it's high degree of morphological variation, previous circumscriptions of species complex have presented a single,morphologically plastic species. Results of numerical phenetic analysis of morphological variation within H. enneaspermus sensu lato support 8 distinct taxa recognizable by vegetative,floral, and fruiting characters. Results of cononical variates analysis and charts of characters used in the data matrix will be presented.
