Momordica mossambica sp. nov. (Cucurbitaceae) from miombo woodland in northern Mozambique




Momordica mossambica, a new species of the Cucurbitaceae from miombo woodland in northern Mozambique is described. In spite of being known only from the type collected in 1964, a morphological and molecular survey of all known species of Momordica indicates that M. mossambica is a distinct species. The closest relatives are M. calantha and M. cabrae from Tanzania and central Africa, respectively, from which it is distinguished easily by its 7-lobed, maple-like leaves.
