Abstract

Background: Previously unidentified herbarium material from tropical West and Central Africa was selected for renewed study.
Objectives: To assess the possibility that this material included undescribed species.
Methods: Seeds were separated from dried or pickled fruits to compare the shape of the endocarp and surface patterning.
Results: Previously unidentified herbarium material from Gabon is recognised and illustrated as the new species Urobotrya gabonensis.
Conclusions: This new species adds one more endemic species to the already rich flora of Gabon.
