Abstract

Mathieu, G. (2020). Endemic Peperomia (Piperaceae) novelties from eastern Madagascar. Candollea 75: 75–82. In English, English and French-abstracts.

Three endemic Peperomia Ruiz & Pav. species (Piperaceae) from the eastern Malagasy rainforests are presented as new to science. They are described, illustrated, compared with presumed closest relatives and their conservation status assessments are provided. Peperomia irrasa G. Mathieu seems to be restricted to the Anjanaharibe massif, while Peperomia robusta G. Mathieu is reported from the National Park of Zahamena to the Loky-Manambato Protected Area (Daraina). Peperomia variilimba G. Mathieu is an apparently common species occurring from the Tsaratanana massif to Analamazaotra. These novelties bring the number of accepted Peperomia species on Madagascar to 42.
