Abstract

Saussurea yiwuensis L.Q. Zhao & Xu Ri (Asteraceae), a new species from Xinjiang, China, is described and illustrated. It is morphologically similar especially to S. jurineoides, but its roots are longitudinally splitting and fibrous, its abaxial leaf surfaces are densely white-tomentose, and its achenes are rugose and glabrous. The species is assigned to Saussurea subgen. Theodorea due to its phyllary apex being spiniform-acuminate with a curved cusp and its receptacle having filiform bristles.
