Abstract

Schumannianthus monophyllus Suksathan, Borchsenius & A. D. Poulsen, a new species of Marantaceae is described and illustrated. It differs from its closest relative S. dichotomus (Roxburgh) Gagnepain in having acaulescent vegetative shoots and shortly caulescent, unbranched fertile shoots (vs. with richly branched aerial stems), each shoot with only a single leaf, and in having a loosely capitate, branched inflorescence (vs. narrowly spiciform and usually unbranched in S. dichotomus).
