AbstractThe genus Mooria Montr., Mém. Acad. Lyon 10 (1860) 207, was based on a single species, M. artensis Montr., Mém. Acad. Lyon 10 (1860) 207. According to Beauvisage (1901), the same species was included by Brongniart and Gris, Bull. Soc. Bot. Fr. 10, (1863, 576), in their genus Cloezia, and this will become the valid name for the genus if it is ruled that Montrouzier’s name is an orthographic variant of Moorea Lemaire, Ill. Hort. 2 (1855) Misc. 14.
The genus is probably restricted to New Caledonia, where about eight species occur in shrub associations from near sea level to about 700 metres.
