Summary

Descriptions of the newly discovered monotypic genusChoriantha gen. nov. and of its single speciesCh. popoviana spec. nov. together with that of the new and very remarkableOnosma rechingeri spec. nov. are given and their relations to other genera from the affinity ofOnosma are discussed.Choriantha represents an ancient type ofBorraginaceae and combines characters ofVaupelia, Maharanga andOnosma. Popovs views regarding the former distribution ofMaharanga- andCystistemon-like plants all over the paleo-mediterranean area are confirmed, his hypothesis ofOnosma being the product of hybridization among these is rejected.
