Litostigma, a new Chinese genus of Gesneriaceae, is described and illustrated. It is characterised by its large flowers in comparison to its small leaves; slightly revolute leaf margins; 1-flowered cymes; crateriform or disciform stigma; and long ovoid capsule. Rather surprisingly, Litostigma falls among the basal didymocarpoid Gesneriaceae. Two new species, Litostigma coriaceifolium Y.G.Wei, F.Wen & M.Mller and Litostigma crystallinum Y.M.Shui & W.H.Chen, are described. © 2010 Trustees of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Source

Chirita nandanensis S.X. Huang, Y.G. Wei & W.H. Luo sp. nova (Gesneriaceae) is described and illustrated from Guangxi, China. The new species is similar to C. floribunda in the leaf and flower shape, but differs by its leaves being densely villous on both surfaces and along the margin, and by having villous pedicels and a 2-parted stigma. © 2010 Finnish Zoological and Botanical Publishing Board.
