Abstract

Pycnocycla saxatilis from SW Jordan and NW Saudi Arabia is described as a species new to science and illustrated. It is a stem-assimilant subshrub related to P. tomentosa and confined to crevices of smooth-faced sandstone and similar habitats. Attention is drawn to another undescribed and related Pycnocycla taxon from further south in Saudi Arabia.
