Abstract

Morphometric or Numerical taxonomic analysis of 56 quantitative and qualitative characters, obtained from Musanga cecropioides check for this species in other resources R. Brown and five species of Myrianthus, M. arboreus check for this species in other resources Palisot de Beauvois, M. holstii check for this species in other resources Engler, M. libericus check for this species in other resources Rendle, M. preusii check for this species in other resources Engler and M. serratus check for this species in other resources (Trecul) Bentham was carried out by calculating similarity and distance indices followed by cluster analysis and construction of a dendrogram for visual appreciation of the taxonomic relationship among these species. The dendrogram showed close similarity among the Myrianthus species, with Musanga cecropioides clearly distinct from the Myrianthus species. This confirms the monotypic status of Musanga, with only one species, Musanga cecropioides.
