Abstract

Four new Aristolochia species from the Mexican states of Colima, Jalisco, and Nayarit are described and illustrated. The four new species, Aristolochia nahua, A. pacifica, A. savannoidea, and A. tuitensis, belong to Aristolochia subsection Pentandrae, and are morphologically similar to A. buntingii and A. tresmariae. All of these species grow in the biogeographic province of the Mexican Pacific Coast, an important area of diversity and species richness of Aristolochia subsection Pentandrae.
