Abstract

Wahlert, G. A., L. Nusbaumer & P. Ranirison (2014). Grewia gautieri Wahlert & Nusb. (Malvaceae, Grewioideae): a new species from Madagascar. Candollea 69: 149–155. In English, English and French abstracts.

Grewia gautieri Wahlert & Nusb. (Malvaceae, Grewioideae), a new species from Madagascar, is described and illustrated. This new species is similar to Grewia brideliifolia Baill. by its 4-merous flowers, 3-flowered cymes, and drupaceous fruits, but differs by its chartaceous leaves, petals that usually lack a nectariferous gland, and fruits that contain a single pyrene. The distribution and ecology of the species are presented, and an IUCN conservation status is provided.
