areas-Some new taxa, combination and new records
M. Qaiser and Rubina Abid
Abstract: Anaphalis chitralensis M. Qaiser & Rubina Abid and a variety i.e., Phagnalon schweinfurthii Schultz Bip. ex Schweinf. var. lamondae M. Qaiser & H.W.,Lack of the tribe Gnaphalieae and Pluchea arguta Boiss. subsp. glabra M. Qaiser of the tribe Plucheeae are described here as new to science. A combination in the tribe Anthemideae viz., Tanacetum eriobasis (Rech.f.) Kovalvsk subsp. tricholepis (Podlech) Qaiser is validated whereas, two taxa viz., Pentanema nematolepis Rech. f. and Pulicaria glutinosa (Boiss.) Jaub. & Spach of the tribe Inuleae are proved as new records from Pakistan.
During the preparation of an account of the family Asteraceae for the Flora of Pakistan the authors came across several interesting specimens, some of them could not be assigned to any known taxon which are described here as new taxa, whereas, some were proved to be new records to our area. All such cases are given below.
