Abstract

Kairoa endressiana is described from limestone environments in Papua New Guinea's (PNG) southern region. According to chloroplast and nuclear DNA sequences, the novelty is closely allied to Faika and Kairoa, two genera previously regarded as monotypic. In recognition of these molecular findings, Kairoa is redefined by one nomenclatural transfer and by the addition of K. endressiana. A key to the three species is presented, together with updated maps of their geographic distributions. Color photographs are provided for all currently accepted taxa.
