Abstract

A new species of Mallotus (Euphorbiaceae) is described for Peninsular Thailand. Typical are the densely spined fruits, lack of infl orescences (axillary fl owers), lack of indumentum and opposite leaves. Mallotus actinoneurus, up to now only known from NE Peninsular Malaysia, is also found at the Thai side of the border. The staminate infl orescences and fl owers of this species were previously unknown, the infl orescences and buds are newly described here.
