Abstract

A new holomycotrophic species, Thismia taiwanensis (Burmanniaceae), is described and illustrated from Kaohsiung County, south-central Taiwan. It most closely resembles the Japanese species T. abei and T. tuberculata, but is distinct as the flowers are subsessile, the outer surface of the perianth tube is smooth, the outer tepals bear very short solitary appendages, and the inner tepals bear longer solitary appendages. This represents the first record of both Thismia and Burmanniaceae tribe Thismieae in China.
