Abstract

Zehneria longiflora, a new species of Cucurbitaceae from Nandi County, Kenya, is described and illustrated here. It is most similar to Z. oligosperma, but differs mainly by its longer receptacle-tube, stamens that are inserted at the middle of the receptacle-tube and with longer filaments, as well as characters of the male and female inflorescence.
