Neue Art - Pinguicula hondurensis

Recommended Posts

Fabian S.

Hallo zusammen,
Nach der kürzlichen Bekanntgabe der Entdeckung von P. simulans (endemisch in Mexico) freue ich mich nun eine weitere neue Pinguicula Gattung aus Honduras vorstellen zu können.
Es handelt sich im P. hondurensis (Zamudio & Hermes Vega) und gehört der Sektion Longitubus an.
Der Bericht und weitere Informationen finden sich unter folgendem Link.


Pinguicula hondurensis Zamudio & Hermes Vega, sp. nov., is described and illustrated from material from Pico Bonito National Park, Depto. Atlantida, and Cerro del Diablo, Depto. Olancho, Honduras. The new species belongs to subg. Pinguicula sect. Longitubus, in view of the bilabiate corolla with a long-infundibuliform tube longer than the corolla lobes. It is differentiated of all the members of the section by the homophyllous condition (with only one type of leaves) and by the purple corolla, which represent two novelties in the section; consequently an amendment of the section diagnosis is made. The presence of this species in Honduras marks the southern limit of the section. A dichotomous key is provided to the species of sect. Longitubus.
