New species and new combinations in Micromeria (Lamiaceae) from the Canary Islands and Madeira

Pamela Puppo, Harald Meimberg

Abstract


Based on recent molecular evidence, one new species and one new subspecies of Micromeria are described for the Canary Islands: M. pedro-luisii and M. hierrensis subsp. incana. Six new combinations are proposed: M. canariensis, M. canariensis subsp. meridialis, M. gomerensis, M. rupestris, M. herpyllomorpha subsp. palmensis, and M. hierrensis. Three new hybrids are described for La Gomera: M. lepida subsp. bolleana × M. gomerensis, M. lepida subsp. bolleana × M. pedro-luisii, and M. lepida subsp. lepida × M. pedro-luisii. A new name is also given to the taxon from Madeira: M. maderensis. A revised key to the species present in the Canary archipelago is provided.
