Abstract

The range of Christisonia siamensis Craib, formerly thought to be restricted to Thailand, is expanded due to new records to include India and China. A detailed comparison of already-described largely white flowered species of Christisonia with new records of such material from Thailand reveals that Thai material is Christisonia scortechinii Prain: this species is, therefore, newly recorded for Thailand. A revised key to the holoparasitic Orobanchaceae of Thailand including Christisonia scortechinii and the newly described Aeginetia flava J.Parn. is provided.
