Abstract

Cypripedium taibaiense G. Zhu & S. C. Chen, a new species from Taibai Mountain in Shaanxi, northwestern China, is described and illustrated. The species belongs to section Cypripedium subsection Macrantha (Kränzlin) Cribb. It resembles C. yunnanense Franchet in having small flowers but differs from it in having ovaries pubescent at least along the ribs, oblong staminodes almost twice as long as wide, untwisted petals, and in having dorsal sepals elliptic-lanceolate more than twice as long as wide.
