      Novelties inCyperus; vegetative anatomy

    • Abstract


      Three novelties collected from Tamil Nadu (Madras State) are described and illustrated of which one belongs to the sectionSulcati and the other one toFlavescentes of the subgenusPycreus. The third novelty comes under the sectionDiffusi of the genusCyperus proper. The new taxon described under sectionSulcati seems to be remarkable in view of the fact that it possesses a characteristic and a peculiar type of epicarpic surface markings. The vegetative anatomy of these three novelties is also presented here which speaks for their distinctness in this respect.
