Abstract

Pulicaria gabrielii, a species of P. sect. Platychaete with homogamous capitula, and Iphionopsis oblanceolata, the third species of a disjunct tropical NE African and SW Madagascan genus, are described as new to science. The material originates from a collection made by the Berlin hydrogeologist Baldur Gabriel in Somalia in the late 1980s and presented to the herbarium in Berlin-Dahlem (B). The relationships of both new species are briefly discussed, illustrations of both species, and keys to the four Pulicaria species with homogamous capitula in Somalia and the three species of Iphionopsis are given.
