A New Species of Lotus (Leguminosae, Loteae) from the L. angustissimus (sect. Lotus) Complex
Abstract:We describe a new species, Lotus lourdes-santiagoi (Leguminosae) of the L. angustissimus complex endemic to Andalusia (southwestern Spain). The most important diagnostic character of the new species is the presence of indumentum on the adaxial face of the standard. A table presents the distinguishing characteristics of the new species, comparing it with L. castellanus Boiss. & Reut. and L. palustris Willd., the two other species in the group having keeled beaks curved inwards at the tip.
