Senecio pokohinuensis (Asteraceae), a new combination for an endemic species of Mokohinau Islands, Hauraki Gulf (Tikapa Moana o Hauraki), northern Te Ika a Maui / North Island, Aotearoa / New Zealand

Peter J. de LANGE*1, Pieter B. PELSER2, Chia-Sin LIEW3, Andrew J. MARSHALL1

Previous research has demonstrated that Senecio repangae subsp. repangae and subsp. pokohinuensis have independent evolutionary origins. Here, we therefore elevate subsp. pokohinuensis to species rank: Senecio pokohinuensis. Updated morphological descriptions for both species are also provided.

Keywords: Asteraceae, Senecioneae, Senecio, S. repangae, S. repangae subsp. pokohinuensis, S. pokohinuensis, new combination, taxonomy, Aotearoa / New Zealand
