|Title:||Taxonomic Novelties In Brazilian Dichorisandra (commelinaceae): D. Sagittata Sp. Nov. And D. Glabrescens Stat. Nov.|
|Abstract:||A new species,Dichorisandra sagittata, is recognized based on field studies and analyses of herbarium and cultivated material. It is characterized by the presence of pilose trichomes throughout the plant, inflorescences perforating the sheath of the lowermost leaf of the lateral branch, and yellow sagittate anthers. A diagnosis, morphological description, illustrations, and comments on taxonomy and geographic distribution are presented here. Furthermore, Dichorisandra incurva var. glabrescens is segregated from Dichorisandra incurva and recognized as a distinct species. Characters that distinguish this species from other morphologically similar species are noted, and illustrations are provided. © 2016 The New York Botanical Garden|
