Abstract

DANIEL, T. F. (2014). Taxonomy of Anisotes Nees (Acanthaceae: Justicieae) in the Comoros Archipelago and a preliminary list of Acanthaceae in the Islands. Candollea 69: 45–54. In English, English and French abstracts.

A new species and a new combination in Anisotes Nees are proposed for the acanthaceous flora of the Comoros Archipelago. The new species, Anisotes mayottensis T. F. Daniel, is known only from Mayotte, and can be distinguished from its Comoran congener by its unequally five-lobed (4 1) or equally four-lobed calyx; longer corolla, stamens, and thecae; and fouraperturate pollen. Anisotes comorensis (Lindau) T. F. Daniel, based on Himantochilus comorensis Lindau, is proposed for a species endemic to Grande Comore. A lectotype is designated for Himantochilus comorensis. Both species are described, mapped, and distinguished by a key; Anisotes mayottensis is also illustrated. All Acanthaceae known from the archipelago are listed in a table.
