Abstract

Suaeda pulvinata, a new perennial species of S. sect. Brezia, is described and illustrated. The new species grows in saline lakes of the central highlands of Mexico in halophytic grasslands of Distichlis spicata. It is compared with the similar S. jacoensis, which is known from strongly saline and gypsiferous flats in the Chihuahuan Desert region.
