Campanula xylocarpa— a new species of the seriesSaxicolaeWitasek

  • Miloslav Kovanda


In this paper, a newCampanula species is described from Eastern Slovakia. Its morphological, distributional and cytological relationships and ecological preferences are briefly discussed and affinity to the otherSaxicolae examined. The taxon is characterized by the following features: specific combination of constant morphological characters; diploid chromosome number (2n=34); ecological specialization to the fissures of limestone and dolomitic rocks; relict occurrence in a small, sharply limited area; very late flowering. Geographically, it appears to be the northernmost representative of theSaxicolae.
