Abstract

A new taxon, Dalea ceciliana B.L. Turner, sp. nov., is described from southern Texas, where it is confined to deep sandy soils. It is closely related to the calciphile D. aurea, but the two taxa do not co-occur nor do the two populational systems intergrade near regions of contact. A photograph of the holotype is presented, along with a map showing the distributions of the taxa concerned.
