Aspidosperma flaviflorum (Apocynaceae), a New Species from Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, with Notes on Wood Anatomy
Aspidosperma flaviflorum , is described as a new species from the submountain semideciduous forest in the municipality of Porto Murtinho in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. This new taxon is described and compared with the most morphologically similar species, A. quirandy and A. tomentosum. In its wood anatomy, A. flaviflorum is unique within the genus by the very scanty axial parenchyma and the lack of a line of axial parenchyma delimiting the growth rings.
