Michael O. Dillon, Victor Quipuscoa-Silvestre

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In preparation for the publication of a monograph of Nolana L.f. (Nolaneae-Solanaceae), two new species, Nolana hoxeyi and Nolana samaensis, are described from the southern Peruvian Department of Tacna. These two share relationships and occur in the same geographic area, although not strictly sympatrically. Series of diagnostic morphological characteristics allow for discrimination of these two from all other species of Nolana with narrow leaves recorded from the Department of Tacna. Descriptions, illustrations, and a distribution map are provided for the new species. Typifications are provided for several taxa of Nolana.
