Abstract:
The predominantly tropical family Acanthaceae are represented in the southwestern United States by 25 species in 11 genera. Within this region, species of Acanthaceae are found primarily in the Sonoran and Chihuahuan Desert regions. Name changes, changes in taxonomic status, and range extensions update the treatments of Acanthaceae in state floras which cover the region. In addition, six species not previously included in state floristic manuals are documented from the Southwest. Keys to and descriptions of each genus and species are provided. Information on synonymy, distribution, habitat preference, and phenology of each species is also given.
