GOMEZ ROMERO, Silvia E; SLANIS, Alberto C  and  GRAU, Alfredo. Deuterocohnia Meziana Subsp. Vallegrandensis (Bromeliaceae), nueva subespecie y primer registro de la especie para Argentina. Darwiniana, nueva serie [online]. 2015, vol.3, n.2, pp.201-207. ISSN 0011-6793.

A new subspecies from Jujuy (Argentina), Deuterocohnia meziana subsp. vallegrandensis is described and illustrated, and a map with its geographical distribution is presented. This subspecies is clearly distinguished by its brown purple sepals, petals of the same colour or reddish with greenish apex. This record represents the first report of the species for the Argentinean Flora. A key for Deuterocohnia from Argentina, together with a comparative table with the characters that distinguish the five subspecies of D. meziana is included. A lectotype is designated for Deuterocohnia meziana.

Keywords : Argentinean Flora; Bromeliaceae; Deuterocohnia; nomenclature; taxonomy.
