Abstract


The taxonomy of an Iberian endemic Aristolochia is treated, based on morphological and cytological characters. A brief description of its main diagnostic characters, distribution and habitat is included, as well as a distribution map and a few comments on its possible phylogenetic relationships. A new combination is proposed, raising this taxon from subspecies to a species proper: A. castellana (Nardi) Costa. A revised dichotomous key for the Iberian taxa of the genus is proposed.

Keywords


Aristolochia pallida subsp. castellana; Aristolochia castellana; morphology; acid plutonic rock; granite; dichotomous key for the Iberian Aristolochia species
