Abstract

A new species of Cucurbita from South America is described. This species, Cucurbita ecuadorensis, is the first wild species of Cucurbita described from northwestern South America. Cucurbita ecuadorensis has been excavated from pre-ceramic, pre-maize levels in Coastal Peru. It appears to be more closely related to the South American C. maxima and C. andreana than to other species in the genus.
