Abstract

Rhaphiolepis wuzhishanensis W. B. Liao, R. H. Miau & Q. Fan (Rosaceae) is described as a new species from Mt. Wuzhishan of Hainan Island in China. The new species is most similar to R. umbellata (Thunberg) Makino in morphology, but differs in having more flowers (70 to 100) in the inflorescence, more stamens (ca. 25), styles connate to the midpoint, smaller fruits (5–7 mm diam.), and a longer, densely rusty tomentum. The ecological and conservation status of the new species is also assessed.
