Abstract: Continuing study of botanical collections
made in recent years under the auspices of the
Fiji Department of Agriculture has indicated the
occurrence of various hitherto undescribed species
of flowering plants in Fiji. In this paper
seven species are described as new, in the genera
Dysoxylum (Meliaceae), Melochia and Sterculia
(Sterculiaceae), Astronidium (Melastomataceae),
and Calycosia, Mastixiodendron, and
Sukunia (Rubiaceae). In the last of these families
the monotypic genus Hedstromia is also discussed.
The opportunity is also taken to propose
five required new combinations in the genus
Neuburgia (Loganiaceae).
