A Corrigendum on
Plastid Genomes of Five Species of Riverweeds (Podostemaceae): Structural Organization and Comparative Analysis in Malpighiales

by Bedoya, A. M., Ruhfel, B. R., Philbrick, C. T., Madriñán, S., Bove, C. P., Mesterházy, A., et al. (2019). Front. Plant Sci. 10:1035. doi: 10.3389/fpls.2019.01035

In the original article, there was an error. Throughout the paper it was stated that ycf1, ycf2, accD, rpl22, and clpP were pseudogenized in Podostemaceae. However, new inspection of our data revealed that rpl22 and clpP are in frame and therefore, their functionality cannot be assessed based on sequence data alone. accD is highly divergent in Podostemaceae but is in frame in Apinagia riedellii, Marathrum utile, and Tristicha trifaria. The gene is not in frame in Marathrum capillaceum and in Monostylis capillacea. Therefore, we confirm that accD may be a pseudogene in two of the evaluated Podostemaceae species, but it may be functional in three of them. We also found that rpl23, reported as present in our study, is not in frame and that rpl32, not mentioned in our paper, is present and functional.

The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.
