Trigas, Panayiotis

Hypericum cycladicum Trigas sp. nov. (Hypericaceae) from Cyclades Islands (Greece) is described and illustrated. It belongs to H. sect. Drosocarpium and its closest relatives seem to be the Cretan endemic H. trichocaulon and the widespread Mediterranean H. perfoliatum. The new species is currently known from Andros, Paros and Naxos islands, but probably has a wider distribution within the Cyclades island group.
