Abstract

A previously undescribed, delicate stem-succulent and small-flowered species of Cynanchum (Asclepiadeae subtribe Cynanchinae) from Madagascar is described here. While the exact place of origin of the type material is unknown, the systematic position of the new species is clear. It belongs to a subgroup of always leafless Cynanchum species endemic to Madagascar, the place of highest diversity of leafless representatives of the genus.
