BEDOLLA-GARCIA, Brenda Y.; LARA-CABRERA, Sabina I.  and  ZAMUDIO, Sergio. Two new species of Salvia(Lamiaceae) from west central Mexico. Act. Bot. Mex [online]. 2011, n.95, pp.51-63. ISSN 2448-7589.

In this study Salvia mcvaughii and S. purepecha are described and illustrated as new species to science. The former is distributed in Mexico in the states of Guerrero and Morelos and the latter in Michoacan. S. mcvaughii has early deciduous, inconspicuous, lanceolate bracts, the calyx is puberulent with caudate teeth, two or four papillae are present on the inner side of the corolla, and has an evident stem node protuberance in the petiole articulation. S. purepecha has subpersistent, ovate to amply ovate, caudate bracts, calyx densely tomentose with caudate teeth, the inner side of the corolla lacking papillae, and the stem node protuberance in the petiole articulation can also be seen. Both species would be allied to S. polystachya and thus belong to section Polystachyae for sharing the diagnostic characters of the section. Nonetheless their definite circumscription to Epling's sections is pending the reassessment of the sections to attain a natural classification.

Keywords : Guerrero; Lamiaceae; Mexico; Michoacán; Morelos; Salvia.
