Abstract

A new species, Hymenocallis gholsonii G. Lom. Smith & Garland (Amaryllidaceae), is described and illustrated. It is a rare endemic that occurs along a stream and its branches in the Apalachicola National Forest, in Liberty County, Florida, U.S.A. Its robust bulbs, narrowly oblanceolate, green-yellow leaves, and robust perianth tubes distinguish it from the allied H. choctawensis Traub, which has more slender bulbs, shiny green, prominently oblanceolate leaves, and slender perianth tubes.
