Abstract

Ixora phuluangensis, a new species from Thailand’s North-Eastern Floristic Region is described and illustrated. The character states of I. kratensis Craib (confined to the South-Eastern Floristic Region) partly overlap with those of I. brunonis Wall. ex G. Don (primarily in the Peninsula and the South-Western Floristic Region); its reduction to subspecific status is proposed (I. brunonis subsp. kratensis). I. brevidens Craib is considered a synonym of I. brunonis (subsp. brunonis).
