Abstract in another language

Two new Philippine endemic species of Timonius are described and illustrated: T. noli-tangere J.G.Chavez, Alejandro and Meve, and T. sulitii Merr. and Quisumb. ex J.G.Chavez and Tandang; both have been found on the island of Samar. Timonius noli-tangere is characterized by its opposite to whorled phyllotaxy, variable leaf blade morphology, reddish and verrucose calyces and subsessile pistillate inflorescences; while T. sulitii can be easily recognized by its widely ovate to suborbicular chartaceous leaves with silky underside, costate and tuberculate fruits with schizogenous cavity, and U-shaped orientation of pyrenes in longitudinal section of the fruit. The distribution, ecology and conservation status of the two species are discussed.
