Abstract

New data generated from overlooked and newly collected specimens demonstrate that there is continuous variation between D. pseudonitens of Thailand and D. nitens of China (Yunnan). A revised key, illustrations and conservation status assessment are provided. The need for population-based research on species limits in D. sect Shannicorea is highlighted.
