Abstract

Strobilanthes spirei is proposed as a new combination of Clinacanthus spirei. Strobilanthes hypomalla and S. spirei are newly recorded for Thailand. The lectotypification of S. hypomalla is made. A detailed description of morphology and pollen features is provided as well as photographs, distribution map, ecology and taxonomic notes.
