ABSTRACT

 

Primulina qintangensis Z. B. Xin, W. C. Chou & F.Wen, a new species from limestone areas of Guangxi, China is described and illustrated. It resembles P. leiophylla ( W. T. Wang) Yin Z. Wang, but can be easily distinguished by a combination of characrterstics, especially in its leaves whorled, blade near aequilateral, lateral veins ca. 3; cymes 5-8, once-compound, 1-3-flowered per cyme; peduncle glabrescent or sparely puberulent; obviously smaller bracts, ca. 8 mm × 2mm; pistil white; disc bright yellow. We found only one population with 3000 mature individuals at the type locality. This species is provisionally assessed as Vulnerable (VU C1) using IUCN criteria.
