Abstract

Zingiber zhuxiense G.X. Hu & S. Huang, a new species from central China, is described and illustrated. It is most similar to Z. atrorubens, but can easily be distinguished from the latter by its shorter leafy shoot, lanceolate bracteole, elliptic dorsal lobe of corolla, obovate and longer labellum, incompletely fused lateral staminodes, longer connective appendage, and glabrous or sparsely puberulent ovary. Known geographical distribution and notes on the ecology of Z. zhuxiense are given and a key to the species of Zingiber in Hubei Province, China is provided.
