Abstract

Based on plants from Gaoligong Shan, Yunnan, China, we provide the first description of Polygonatum dolichocarpum, sp. nov. (Asparagaceae). In all previously described species of Polygonatum the young fruits are more or less globose and contain fewer than 9 ovules/seeds per locule and the pericladium is short or absent. Polygonatum dolichocarpum has elongate young fruits with 9 to 12 ovules/seeds per locule and long pericladia.
