Abstract

Homalomena vietnamensis from Vietnam is described as a species new to science and illustrated. It belongs to H. sect. Homalomena and differs from other species mainly by having leaf blades with a truncate to obtuse base, a non-constricted, rather thick spathe and a slender, subcylindric staminode in each female flower. A chromosome number of 2n = 38 was counted in root tip mitoses.
