The mistletoe genus Dendropemon (Loranthaceae), consisting of 31 species, is endemic to the Caribbean islands and the Bahamas. It is characterized by indeterminate inflorescences bearing paired monads; each flower is subtended by a bract and two bracteoles that are fused to various degrees, forming a cupule-like structure. A feature of Dendropemon unique in the family is the high degree of stamen dimorphism, involving alternate fertile stamens and staminodia. The genus seems most closely related to Passovia and Oryctanthus, both of which are continental in distribution, except for the presence of all three genera on Jamaica.
This monograph provides a synthesis of information on Dendropemon, including keys, diagnoses, and illustrations for all species. It includes the description and illustrations for seven new species, D. angustifolius, D. dimorphus, D. elegans, D. fuscus, D. oblanceolatus, D. polycarpus, and D. robustus.
