Abstract

Two new species of Croton are described from Thailand. C. acutifolius Esser and C.
decalvatus Esser. Both are locally common, but were hitherto confused with C. robustus Kurz and C. thorelii Gagnep., respectively. The name of the important medicinal plant, C. sublyratus Kurz, is changed to C. stellatopilosus Ohba, perhaps identical with C. longissimus Airy Shaw.
