PhytoKeys 94:107-116.

 


ABSTRACT

Primulina malipoensis, a new species from limestone areas around the Sino-Vietnamese border, is described and illustrated. This new species is morphologically similar to P. maguanensis and P. lungzhouensis, but obviously diers from the latter two species by its pale greenish-yellow flowers (vs. purple& pink, with different colour patterns). The phylogenetic affinity, illustration and photographs of this new species are provided in this paper.
