Abstract

Aspidistra ovatifolia Yan Liu & C. R. Lin (Asparagaceae) is described and illustrated as a new species from limestone slopes in the Guangxi Zhuangzu Autonomous Region in southern China. The new species is similar to A. longanensis Y. Wan in the shape of flower, but differs by its perianth lobes that are triangular, 3–5 mm long, monocyclic, adaxially white, and the stigma 12–16 mm in diam., and adaxially creamy white and glabrous, with the central portion shallowly convex with four radial, bifurcate lines. The new species is currently known only from southwestern Guangxi, near the border with northern Vietnam.
