(Vol. 06, 2003-12) A New Species of Condalia (Rhamnaceae) from Sonora, Mexico James Henrickson
Condalia sonorae is described as a new species from north central Sonora, Mexico. The taxon was previously considered part of Condalia correllii, but differs in having bicolored leaves, denser young-stem and leaf vestiture, petaloid flowers, and more spheroidal fruit endocarps. In contrast, C. correllii, has concolorous, abaxially glabrous leaves, shorter stem vestiture, apetalous flowers, and more ovoid fruit endocarps. Comparisons are also made with C. velutina, C. mexicana and C. hookeri.
