Primulina wenii (Gesneriaceae), a new species from China  


Bangladesh J. Plant Taxon. 24(2): 173–182.




ABSTRACT

Primulina wenii (Gesneriaceae) is described and illustrated here as a new species. Morphologically, this new species resembles P. juliae (Hance) Mich. Möller & A.Weber, but it is distinct from the latter by some obvious features in leaf blade, bract, indumentum, corolla, filament, stigma and pistil. Nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region and plastid trnL-F intronspacer (trnL-F) DNA sequence data from the new species and its 22 relatives are used to determine the systematic position of the new species within Primulina
