Argyreia albiflora 
Staples & Traiperm   


A new species of Argyreia (Convolvulaceae) from Thailand is described and illustrated: Argyreia albiflora. The morphological distinctions of this new species and its relationships with allied species are discussed. Micromorphological evidence is presented using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and light microscopy (LM) demonstrating that microscopic features of the upper leaf surface are useful in separating species that are similar on a macromorphological level.

Keywords: Argyreia albiflora, Argyreia wallichii, cutin, leaf anatomy, leaf epidermis
