Summary: Goodyera dongchenii Lucksom var. gongligongensis X. H. Jin & S. C. Chen is a new synonym of Goodyera hemsleyana King & Pantl. This constitutes the first record of G. hemsleyana for China. Goodyera dongchenii Lucksom is considered to be conspecific with G. robusta Hook. f. and is reduced to a variety of G. schlechtendaliana Rchb. f. Both species are described and illustrated and a key to the varieties of G. schlechtendaliana is provided. © 2012 The Board of Trustees of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Source

A group of Sino-Himalayan species characterized by actinomorphic corolla, without (honey-storing) lateral saccate gibbosity, 5 nectaries, anthers as long as or longer than included filaments and flat or carinate leaf vernation, is separated from Lonicera L. and described here as a new genus, Devendraea Pusalkar under the family Caprifoliaceae.

The new species Picrorhiza tungnathii Pusalkar is described and illustrated from the western Himalaya, India. It is distinguished from the allied P. kurrooa Royle ex Benth. by being 10-25 cm tall, having a moderately dense, (10-)15-25-flowered spike, a zygomorphic, 2-lipped, glandular-ciliate corolla that is equaling or slightly exceeding the calyx and partly visible or sub-exserted between the calyx lobes, a conspicuously long (longer than the corolla lobes), curved corolla tube (1/2-4/5 the length of the calyx), unequal corolla lobes that are ovate-lanceolate to lanceolate, acute to sub-acuminate and moderately ciliate, a mid-lobe of the upper lip that is obliquely erect, galeate with retuse or emarginate apex, lateral corolla lobes that are slightly smaller than the mid-lobe of the upper lip, a lower corolla lip that is slightly shorter than the lateral lobes, obliquely erect or spreading, didynamous, long-exserted (2-3 times the corolla) stamens, pollen of the Paederota-type and a style that is 2-3 times as long as the corolla. © 2014 The Authors.

Parapharyngodon jairajpurii n. sp. from the rectum of the yellow-bellied house gecko, Hemidactylus flaviviridis Ruppell, 1835, collected in Dehradun, India, is described, illustrated, and photomicrographed. It represents the eighth species of Parapharyngodon from the Oriental realm and 48th species assigned to the genus. Of the Oriental species, Parapharyngodon jairajpurii n. sp. is most similar to Parapharyngodon adamsoni in that males of both species possess 4 pair of papillae and a smooth anterior cloacal lip, while females of both species possess a stout tail spike, 6 simple lips, and a prebulbar ovary. These two species differ in that males of P. adamsoni have spicules reaching 120 m in length compared to spicules of P. jairajpurii, which reach 75 m in length; females of P. adamsoni have smooth egg shells compared to the punctate eggs of P. jairajpurii.

A study revealed that the genus Thylacospermum Fenzl (Caryophyllaceae) is not monotypic, but includes two distinct species, Himalayan T. caespitosum (Cambess.) Schischk. and Central Asian T. rupifragum (Kar. & Kir.) Schrenk. Based on morphological characterization and phylogeny evidence, a new tribe Thylacospermeae Pusalkar is proposed as correct placement for the unique high altitude cold desert genus Thylacospermum Fenzl of the family Caryophyllaceae.
