  • T. C. G. Rich (a1), A. McVeigh (a2) and C. A. Stace (a3)

Abstract

Four new taxa and nine new combinations are required for forthcoming floristic works by the authors. The new taxa are Centaurium tenuiflorum (Hoffmanns. & Link) Fritsch subsp. anglicum T.C.G.Rich & McVeigh, subsp. nov.; Centaurium × klattii P.Fourn. ex T.C.G.Rich, hyb. nov.; Centaurium × ubsdellii T.C.G.Rich, hyb. nov.; and Gentianella amarella (L.) Börner subsp. occidentalis T.C.G.Rich & McVeigh, subsp. nov. The new combinations are Centaurium erythraea Rafn var. latifolium (Sm.) T.C.G.Rich, comb. et stat. nov.; Gentianella amarella (L.) Börner subsp. anglica (Pugsley) T.C.G.Rich & McVeigh, comb. et stat. nov.; Aria parviloba (T.C.G.Rich) Sennikov & Kurtto, comb. nov.; Cotula sessilis (Ruiz & Pav.) Stace, comb. nov.; Elymus × drucei (Stace) Stace, comb. nov.; Elymus repens (L.) Gould f. aristatus (Schumach.) Stace, comb. nov.; Elymus athericus (Link) Kerguélen f. setigerus (Dumort.) Stace, comb. nov.; Ulmus minor Mill. subsp. cornubiensis (Weston) Stace, comb. et stat. nov.; and Dysphania ambrosioides (L.) Mosyakin & Clemants var. anthelmintica (L.) Stace, comb. nov.
