Resumo: A chemotaxonomic study is made on the basis of a phytochemical screening of the leaves of 60% of the African Cryptolepis species and the review of the secondary metabolites identified in the genus Cryptolepis, subfamily Periplocoideae and related families Asclepiadaceae and Apocynaceae. Our study indicates that the chemistry of the genus Cryptolepis is in agreement with its taxonomic position within the taxon Periplocaceae/Periplocoideae and also that the chemical evidence obtained so far is consistent with the idea that the taxon Periplocaceae/Periplocoideae is an evolutionary link between the families Apocynaceae and Asclepiadaceae. Our observations also strengthens the argument that the taxon Periplocaceae/Periplocoideae should be considered an independent family. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
