Abstract

Psammosilene tunicoides, a new generic and species record for Thailand, is reported. The new record was discovered on a degraded calcareous substrate mountain in the western part of Thailand near the Thai-Myanmar border. The species was previously reported to be endemic to SW China. This occurrence in Thailand greatly extends the distribution of the species. A lectotype is designated here.
