Taxonomy of Boesenbergia parvula (Zingiberaceae) with new synonymy
The taxonomy and botanical history of Boesenbergia gelatinosa K. Larsen, B. jahaiana Meekiong & C.K.Lim, B. parvula (Wall.) Kuntze, and B. phyllostachya (Gagnep.) K.Larsen are reviewed as a group with similar characteristics. Based on morphological comparisons, ecological data, and molecular phylogenetic analyses using plastid and nuclear DNA sequence data, these species are determined to be conspecific with B. parvula and are here made synonyms. A new variety, B. parvula var. major Mood & Veldkamp is described.
