Abstract

Recent fieldwork on the island of Mindanao, Philippines resulted in the discovery of a species — Etlingera dostseiana Naive, Demayo & Alejandro (Zingiberaceae) — described here as new to science. It is unique among the Philippine Etlingera due to having an ovoid spike, papery bracts when fruiting, and stilt roots. A detailed description, photographs, phenology and habitat ecology of this endemic Etlingera species are provided. A total of 17 species of Etlingera are now known the Philippines, 11 of them endemic.
