Abstract

Background and aims - The species distinction within the tropical African genus Mocquerysia, known for its epiphyllous flowers, is investigated and discussed to clarify some discontinuities in their morphology and distribution. Methods - Normal practices of herbarium taxonomy have been applied to study all herbarium material available at BR, LBV, P, and WAG. Key results - The synonymy of Mocquerysia epipetiola and the type species M multiflora is confirmed. The isolated population part of the latter in Central Gabon, proves to represent a new species Mocquerysia distans. The new species is described and illustrated.
