CUEVAS, Ramón e MONTERO, Juan Carlos. New record of Cestrum mortonianum (Solanaceae) and description of new variety in the Pacific slope of Mexico. Act. Bot. Mex [online]. 2011, n.95, pp. 37-43. ISSN 0187-7151.
We present a review of the geographic distribution of Cestrum mortonianum, as well as a description and an illustration of a new variety from the Sierra de Manantlan. The features that differentiate this variety from C. mortonianum var. mortonianum, and from C. tomentosum and C. pacificum -all of which share the presence of branched pubescence - are also discussed. A key to distinguish the Mexican species of Cestrum whith this indumenta is provided.
