The paper presents results of field botanical explorations in Vietnam during 2011. It includes descriptions of 1 newly discovered, morphologically very distinct species (Tainia cornuta
) and data for 1 genus and 5 species recorded in Vietnam for the first time. These are Abdominea minimiflora
(representative of the monotypic genus), Appendicula torta, Bulbophyllum unciniferum, Liparis compressa
and Phaius wenshanensis.
Native locality of Dendrobium farinatum

Taxonomically isolated species. It be-longs to Dendrobium

Central Vietnam (Quang Nam province). Probably, endemic of eroded sandstone formations in central part of Vietnam.Ecology.
Terrestrial herb on shady, very steep sandstone slopes in primary and rich secondary broad-leaved evergreen forests at elevations about 300-500 m a.s.l. Flowering was observed during rainless season in May, when leaves become completely dry and partially disintegrate into fibrous remnants. Fruits in July-August.Etymology.
Species name reflects presence of characteristic horn-like processes on anther cap top.Notes.
Discovered plant represents curious entity that dramatically changes widely accepted concept of delimitation of closely related genera Ania
Blume and Hancockia
Rolfe. The plant undoubtedly belongs to the mentioned generic complex, but it does not fit with any of these genera in its morphology. Meanwhile, it surprisingly combines features sporadically occurring in spe-cies spreading in all mentioned genera. This plant has pseudobulbs that resemble pseudobulbs of Ania
species, spur and column foot occurring in flowers of Tainia
, leaves similar to leaves of Mischobulbum
, horny operculum similar to some species of Nephelaphyllum
, etc. (see Table 1).
At the same time the plant indeed differs from Ania
in strongly tetragonal pseudo-bulbs, in sessile, thin leaves (cordate or subcordate at the base), in distinct spur and in finger-like horns erected on anther cap. Our plant differs from Nephelaphyllum
(besides the mentioned features) in resu-pinate flowers with well-developed column foot, and in long column and insignificant rostellum. Eventu-ally, the discovered plant differs from Mischobulbum
in spurred lip, well developed column foot, and from Hancockia
in many flowered inflorescence, fleshy pseudobulbs, large rostellum, horny anther cap and in short spur. Meanwhile, some distinct fea-tures typical for described plant are probably unique in the complex. These are: large triangular lateral column wings, dorsal longitudinal keel on column back and bidentate operculum. Additionally, plant becomes leafless at anthesis that normally has never been observed in any species of the related genera. Following the narrow concept of the mentioned genera, our plant should be, undoubtedly, accepted as a member of a separate undescribed monotypic genus on the base of its distinct specific morphology. Nevertheless, I follow here some recent authors (Chen Xinqi, Wood, 2009; Pridgeon et al., 2005) reasonably treating largest portion of the mentioned generic complex in a broader sense, placing Ania
into one genus under the prior name Tainia
. In such circumstances, it is rea-sonable to place the newly discovered plant into this genus. It is remarkable that in a certain sense our plant demonstrates "central" position in the complex having transitional morphology connecting earlier accepted "narrow" genera. This fact indirectly justi-fies uniting these genera.Tainia cornuta
, probably, represents a case of local plant endemism of central Vietnam con-nected with ancient eroded sandstone formations observed in Quang Nam province (Dai Loc district, Dai Hong municipality) on a very limited territory. The complex of plant species in these endangered habitats is very specific (Averyanov, Tanaka, 2012) and certainly requires protection as an important "hot-spot" of outstanding aboriginal plant diversity.Acknowledgements.
