Abstract

Werauhia noctiflorens T. Krömer, Espejo, López-Ferrari & Acebey (Bromeliaceae), a new species from the states of Chiapas and Veracruz in Mexico and the Toledo District in Belize, is described and illustrated. The new taxon has a simple, secund inflorescence, with white to greenish white flowers, large sepals and petals to 3.3 and 5.5 cm, respectively, and fusiform and rostrate capsules. Werauhia noctiflorens is compared to the similar taxa W. macrochlamys (Mez & Wercklé) J. F. Morales, W. pittieri (Mez) J. R. Grant, and W. vanhyningii (L. B. Smith) J. R. Grant.
