Abstract

Five new taxa from Central America, Anisacanthus nicaraguensis (compound dichasial cymes, 4-merous red corollas, 3-colporate pollen), Aphelandra scabra var. angustifolia (narrowly elliptic leaves), Justicia cauliflora (some inflorescences on old wood, lanceolate bracts, greenish white corolla), J. chiriquiensis (cymose panicles, oblanceolate bracts, 4-porate pollen), and J. nicaraguensis (clusters of 2-3 flowers to short spikes, corollas orange, dicolporate pollen), are described. The new combination Justicia rothschuhii (Lindau) Durkee, based on Chaetothylax rothschuhii Lindau, is made, and the new name Justicia danielii Durkee, which replaces Chaetothylax cuspidatus D. N. Gibson, is provided.
