Primulina pseudomollifolia W.B. Xu & Yan Liu and P. multifida B. Pan & K.F. Chung from karst caves in Guangxi Zhuangzu Autonomous Region, China are described and illustrated as two new species. Their generic placement in the recently recircumscribed Primulina is supported by phylogenetic analyses of DNA sequence nuclear ITS and chloroplast trnF-L intron spacer regions. Primulina pseudomollifolia is similar to P. mollifolia (D. Fang & W. T. Wang) J.M. Li & Y.Z. Wang in being densely pubescent on…

Primulina cardaminifolia (Gesneriaceae), a rare new species from limestone areas in Guangxi, China

All available data support the recognition of the new species Primulina cardaminifolia and suggest that it could have derived from homoploid hybrid speciation.

Novelties in Begonia sect. Coelocentrum: B. longgangensis and B. ferox from limestone areas in Guangxi, China

Two attractive new species from southwestern Guangxi are reported: Begonia longgangensis and B. ferox, both of which have remarkably long stolons and are characterized by the prominent bullate leaves for the genus Begonia.

Two new species of Begonia sect. Coelocentrum, B. guixiensis and B. longa, from Sino-Vietnamese limestone karsts

A careful study of the literature, herbarium specimens and living plants, both in the wild and in cultivation in the experimental greenhouse, support the recognition of the two new species, which are described and illustrated herein.

Primulina zhoui and P. huangii (Gesneriaceae), two new species from limestone areas in Guangxi, China

Primulina zhoui and Primulina huangii, two new species of Gesneriaceae from the limestone area in Guangxi, China are described and illustrated. Primulina zhoui is similar to Primulina multifida B.

Petrocodon (Gesneriaceae) in the Limestone Karsts of Guangxi, China: Three New Species and a New Combination Based on Morphological and Molecular Evidence

Three new species of the Old World Didymocarpoid Gesneriaceae, Petrocodon laxicymosus, P. longgangensis, and P. pseudocoriaceifolius are described and illustrated from Guangxi, China, differing by their texture, size, and shape of leaves, size and pubescence of inflorescence and corolla.

Primulina hunanensis sp. nov. (Gesneriaceae) from a limestone area in southern Hunan, China

A new species of Gesneriaceae, Primulina hunanensis, is described and illustrated from southern Hunnan, China, which is similar to P. cordata but differs by having much larger leaves, broadly ovate or ovate bracts, 2–12 (–25)-flowers, longer peduncle and purple corolla.

Molecular systematics of Chiritopsis-like Primulina (Gesneriaceae): one new species, one new name, two new combinations, and new synonyms

This work sampled all but two recently described species of Chiritopsis-like Primulina and reconstructed their phylogenetic relationship based on DNA sequences of nuclear ITS and chloroplast trnL-F and trnH-psbA, indicating at least 17 independent origins of the traits associated with caves or cave-like microhabitats.

Primulina pseudoroseoalba (Gesneriaceae), a New Species from a Karst Cave in Guangxi, China

A new species of Gesneriaceae from China, which is morphologically similar to P. roseoalba, but differs from it in the leaf blade being broadly ovate to elliptic, and its margin entire and abaxially glabrous.

Petrocosmea funingensis (Gesneriaceae): a new species from southeastern Yunnan, China

A new species from southeastern Yunnan, China is described and illustrated and is morphologically most similar to P. huanjiangensis and P. iodioides, but can be distinguished from these species by several quantitative and qualitative characters of the leaves, peduncles, calices, stamens, staminodes and styles.

A new species of Primulina (Gesneriaceae) from Guangdong, China

A new species of Gesneriaceace, Primulina yangchunensis , is described and illustrated from China. The species is related to P. orthandra , but it can be easily distinguished by its leaf blade base
