The natural hybrid Bletia ×ekmanii (B. patula × B. purpurea) is described and illustrated. Hybrid plants have a semihypogeous subglobose corm, incurved petals enclosing the column, flowers of intermediate size between those of the parental species, a trilobed lip of almost the same size as the lateral sepals with obtuse lateral lobes. Flowers of the hybrid resemble those of B. purpurea but are larger and with a patent lip as in B. patula. The hybrid was found along the roadside from Palenque to Bernardo town, Guantánamo Province, eastern Cuba. © 2011 BGBM Berlin-Dahlem.

Two new species and a new hybrid species of Selaginella (Lycophyta: Selaginellaceae), from Pinar del Río and Artemisa Provinces in W Cuba, are described and illustrated. The new species are S. cavernaria, an erect plant growing on calcareous rocks and cliffs in mogote vegetation, and S. striata, a prostrate plant occurring in the same ecosystem and sometimes growing together with S. cavernaria. The new hybrid species is S. ×dualis (S. serpens × S. striata), with intermediate morphology, growing together and sometimes mixed with the postulated parent species. All three new taxa are representatives of S. subg. Stachygynandrum. © 2014 BGBM Berlin-Dahlem.
