Abstract

Strobilanthes wallichii Nees (Acanthaceae) is reported for the first time in Taiwan.

Taxonomic description, distribution information, pollen SEM micrographs, and color photographs are provided for this newly recorded species. Key to all known species of Strobilanthes sensu lato in Taiwan and detailed comparison between this new record and closely related species are also provided to aid in identification.
