Three new Viola species from Yunnan China
Professor Huang Su-Hua from the Department of Biology of Yunnan University described three new Viola species found in Yunnan province in an article published in the Acta Botanica Yunnanica (issue 4, 2003). The new species are:
This species is similar to V. rockiana, but the leaves are smaller with serried netted stripes on the back and the flowers are small.
This is similar to V. delavayi, but the leaves are narrow oval-triangular shaped with serrated margins. The flowers are light yellow.
This is similar to V. moupinensis (the wild violet with the second largest leaves I've ever seen; the largest being
V. magnifica, which I just saw this past Thursday), but the plant is smaller with small white flowers.
