Abstract

Beccari's Microcasia pygmaea has been recollected in Sarawak after almost 145 years. Examination reveals, contrary to recent taxonomic treatments, it to be a distinct species (of the genus Bucephalandra) not conspecific with Bucephalandra motleyana Schott. Microcasia pygmaea Becc. is here transferred to Bucephalandra as Bucephalandra pygmaea (Becc.) P.C. Boyce & S.Y. Wong, comb. nov. Notes on taxonomically critical morphologies are provided. Bucephalandra is now considered to comprise five published accepted species, elucidated in a new key. Notes on the taxonomy of Bucephalandra and Microcasia are given and Bucephalandra pygmaea is illustrated from living plants.
