Resumo

GOLDBLATT, Peter  e  MANNING, John C.. Moraea orthrosantha (Iridaceae: Irideae), a new species from Namaqualand, South Africa. Bothalia (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.44, n.1, pp. 1-4. ISSN 2311-9284.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ABC.V44I1.132.

BACKGROUND: Recent fieldwork in Namaqualand, Northern Cape Province, South Africa, indicated the existence of an undescribed member of Moraea subgenus (subg.) Umbellatae Goldblatt & J.C.Manning, a small, early branching clade of the genus OBJECTIVES: To describe the new species of Moraea subg. Umbellatae METHOD: Recent collections were compared with existing material and published literature RESULTS: Moraea orthrosantha is described as a new species, differing from Moraea margaretae in the well-developed nodes between the cauline leaves. Two earlier collections of the species were misidentified as M. margaretae CONCLUSION: The new species increases our understanding of the diversity of Moraea in southern Africa and assists in conservation assessments of both M. margaretae and M. orthrosantha
