Abstract

Two new species of Wikstroemia from Sichuan, China, are described and illustrated. Wikstroemia guanxianensis from Dujiangyan Xian is similar to W. dolichantha in the one-sided development of the disc and in the elongate inflorescence. It differs from W. dolichantha in the oval, wider leaves (to 3.5 cm wide) rounded at the base, longer pedicel (1.5 mm), and disc quadrate, apex truncate, undulate. Wikstroemia jiulongensis is similar to W. fargesii, but differs from it in young branches with scattered pubescence, the peduncles absent or very short, and a quadrate disc with undulate apex. A key to similar species of Wikstroemia in Sichuan is provided.
