Phenology.

Miconia lima  has been collected in flower and fruit from Februrary throught November.

Distribution

(Fig. 21View Figure 21). Miconia lima  is the most widespread species of all of the members of the Lima  clade occurring widely throughout Hispaniola on almost all mountain ranges from 550 to 2000 m in elevation. It is known from the Massif de la Selle, Massif du Cahos, and Massif de Matheux in Haiti and the Sierra de Baoruco, Sierra de Neiba, Cordillera Central and Cordillera Septentrional in the Domincan Republic (Fig. 22View Figure 22). Miconia lima  was cited by Alain (1957) as occurring on Cuba, based on a misidentification of the Cuban species Miconia tentaculicapitata  (Linden 2102; BR, K, P, see above). Grisebach (1866) cited Wright 189 as Miconia lima  ; this collection is actually referable to Miconia cubana  , a Cuban species (see under Miconia cubana  ).

Ecology.

Miconia lima  occurs in moist tropical broadleaf or mixed broadleaf-pine, cloud forests ( Pinus occidentalis  ) ranging in elevation from 550-2000 m on limestone-derived soils. The species can be found with Miconia limoides  in Massif de la Selle, Haiti and Sierra de Baoruco (Monteada Nueva), Dominican Republic and co-occurs with Miconia paralimoides  in parts of the Cordillera Central, Dominican Republic. Miconia lima  also occurs with Calycogonium turbinatum  Urb. & Ekman, Mecranium septentrionale  Skean, Meriania involucrata  Naudin, Miconia capillaris  (Sw.) M. Gómez, Miconia ferruginea  DC., Miconia hispidula  (Cogn.) Judd et al. (Loma Isabel de Torres, Dominican Republic), Miconia dielsiana  Urb., Miconia jimenezii  Judd & R.S.Beaman, Miconia punctata  (Desr.) D.Don, Miconia septentrionalis  Judd & R.Beaman, Miconia tetrastoma  Naudin, Miconia lanceolata  DC., Miconia nanophylla  Judd et al., Miconia scalpta  (Vent.) Ionta et al., Miconia subcompressa  Urb. and Miconia zanonii  Judd et al. See Ciferri (1936) for more information about the species occurrence and associate species in the Cordillera Septentrional (Pico Diego de Ocampo).

Conservation status.

Miconia lima  is the most widespread species of the Lima  clade on Hispaniola and does not appear to be in any immediate danger from anthro pogenic disturbance in most parts of its range. However, localized populations are likely under intense pressure from forest clearing for farming and charcoal production in Haiti (e.g., Massif de la Selle) and the Dominican Republic, so we consider the species as vulnerable.

Discussion.

Miconia lima  forms part of the Miconia lima  species complex comprised of Miconia lima  , Miconia limoides  , Miconia marigotiana  , Miconia ottoschmidtii  , Miconia paralimoides  , Miconia pedunculata  and Miconia phyrnosomaderma  . Miconia lima  is perhaps the most taxonomically complex species of the entire Lima  clade. The species varies greatly throughout its range but shows geographic cohesion in morphological features, i.e., plants from specific geographic regions can be distinguished from those of other regions. For instance, populations from Massif de la Selle, Haiti tend to have smaller leaves than other populations, and populations in the Cordillera Septentrional, Dominican Republic have longer calyx teeth than most other populations of the species.

Populations in the Monteada Nueva region of the Dominican Republic show potential introgession with Miconia limoides  , as they have spreading to spreading-ascending stem hairs (instead of strongly ascending stem hairs), strongly angular, bulla-based hairs on the adaxial leaf surface, and dense, bulla-based hairs on the abaxial leaf surface, mostly or nearly obscuring the lamina, as in Miconia limoides  (e.g., Howard 12300, Judd 5183, 8083, Liogier 11661, Majure 5960, Zanoni 18919, 30470, 38638; see Fig. 26 A–CView Figure 26). Miconia lima  also potentially hybridizes with Miconia paralimoides  in the Cordillera Central (see under Miconia paralimoides  ).

Populations of Miconia lima  from the Loma Quita Espuela region of the Cordillera Septentrional, Dominican Republic are unique within the species in having densely long- shaggy pubescent stems (with hairs to 2.8 mm long), inflorescence axes, and hypanthia, as well as adaxial leaf surfaces with well-developed bulla-based hairs with long, attenuate apices and calyx teeth up to 5 mm long (i.e., Abbott 2184, García 5222). Partial DNA sequence data from an herbarium specimen ( García 5222) from this population exhibited synapomorphies with other accessions of Miconia lima  , and in general, northeasternmost populations of Miconia lima  in the Domincan Republic tend to have larger leaves and longer hairs on all surfaces of the plant and fall within the morphological limits of Cogniaux’s Ossaea lima var. grandifolia  from Loma Isabel de Torres, which we treat as a synonym under a broadly circumscribed Miconia lima  . Thus, although the Loma Quita Espuela populations are somewhat morphologically divergent from most other populations of Miconia lima  , we consider them as representing morphologically differentiated, geographically centered populations, which are not clearly diagnosable from others of Miconia lima  . However, it is certainly possible that more molecular and mophological work on those populations might show them to be distinct from Miconia lima  .
