Abstract

Solanum anomalostemon S. Knapp & M. Nee is described from Cusco in southern Peru. The species is endemic to the Río Apurímac basin and is known from very few collections. The new species has unique anther morphology within Solanum L.; this is compared to other anther variants in the genus. Potential relationships of this unusual and enigmatic species are discussed, the new species is illustrated, and a preliminary conservation assessment of Endangered (EN) is proposed.
