A specimen from Kew's Herbarium

[KBu]

Hind, D.J.N. & Frisby, S. 2014. Pectis harryi (Compositae: Heliantheae: Pectidinae), a new species from a rock platform in the Departamento de Santa Cruz, Eastern Bolivia. Kew Bulletin 69: 9520. DOI https://doi.org/10.1007/s12225-014-9520-2

Conservation
This is the only collection of this taxon that has been made during an adequate survey of the easily accessible rock platforms of this area, although it is still possible that some remain undiscovered in the locality. Since the rock platforms are most susceptible to human interference, because of ease of access and especially grazing and fire (manmade or natural), as well as the potential for natural ‘water flush degradation’(Ibisch et al. 1995: 312) washing away or destroying the plant mats, and for its area of occupancy alone, it is best to record this species as CR: B2a, C or D (Critically Endangered, with an area of occupancy of <10 km2, in one known location, and most probably of small population size with a small or restricted population found only on the inselberg of the type collection). No estimate of the population size was undertaken at the time the herbarium collections were made. [See also Postscript].
Distribution
Only known from the type collection from the Provincia de Velasco, Departamento de Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
Ecology
Restricted to very shallow soils on granitic rock platforms in the Provincia de Velasco, Departamento de Santa Cruz, Bolivia; alt. c. 420 – 425 m.
Figures

Morphology General Habit
A dwarf suffruticose perennial herb, 3 – 5 cm tall, aromatic; taproot 3 – 5 cm long
Morphology Leaves
Leaves opposite, sessile, linear to linear-lanceolate, 10 – 12 mm long × 0.5 mm wide, base purplish, lamina glabrous, abaxially glandular-punctate, glands ± circular to ovate, 0.15 – 0.25 mm diam., numerous, in single rows on either side of midrib and often reddish/purplish pigmented in lower half of leaf, midrib prominent beneath, margins entire, revolute and half covering each row of glands (in dried material), setose-ciliate in lower ½ of leaf with 2 – 5 pairs of slender cilia, 2 – 3 mm long (0.5 mm apart at base, to 2 – 3 mm apart mid leaf), apex acicular
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Disc
Disk florets 9 – 12, hermaphrodite, fertile, corollas yellow 3 – 4 mm long, slightly exceeding or equalling pappus, tube 2 – 2.5 mm long, zygomorphic and pseudobilabiate, lobes 5, 4 lobes equal, 0.5 – 1 mm long, forming an adaxial lip, 1 lobe 1 – 1.5 long, lobe apices attenuate, adaxially glandular and abaxially glabrous; anthers c- 1.5 mm long, inserted just in lower half of corolla tube, anther collar conspicuous but only slightly thicker than filament, anther bases subcordate, apical anther appendages ovate, apices rounded; style shaft papillose in upper ½, style arms slightly exserted, scarcely divided, papillose outside
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Florets
Ray florets 5, female, fertile, inserted on phyllary base, corolla yellow sometimes with purplish streaks abaxially, 4.5 – 5.5 mm long, ray limb 3 – 3.5 mm long, narrowly ovate, tapering above, apex 3-lobed, c- 0.25 mm long, minutely glandular, glabrous, corolla tube 1.5 – 2 mm long
Morphology Reproductive morphology Fruits
Achenes cylindrical to fusiform, 2.5 – 3 mm long × c- 0.5 mm wide, black, shiny, setuliferous, setulae of twin-hairs of 3 types of apices: connate, forked, or excentric and unequally forked with a short-barbellate subapical free cell apex (Fig. 1P), c- 0.25 mm long, tawny coloured; carpopodium conspicuous, pale, annuliform and glabrous; pappus setae 9 – 12, uniseriate, ±ascending, setae, 3 – 3.5 mm long, 3 or 4 of which are shorter and finer and capillary throughout or capillary in apical half and flattened in lower half, all setae barbellate throughout, yellowish to straw-coloured
Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences
Inflorescences of solitary terminal capitula, capitula relatively long-pedicellate, pedicels 2.5 – 4 cm long, often retained after loss of involucre, purplish coloured with few scattered glandular-punctate beneath involucre, slightly inflated beneath involucre, bracteolate, bracteoles 3 – 4, scale-like, 1 – 1.5 mm long, surface glandular-punctate with 2 – 3 narrow-ovate glands, margins ciliate, apices long-acute
Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences Capitulum
Capitula heterogamous, radiate; involucres campanulate, ecalyculate, c. 5 mm tall × 3 – 4 mm diam.; phyllaries 5, uniseriate, oblong-oblanceolate, 4 – 5 mm long × 1.5 – 2 mm wide, bases rounded and connate, gibbous, strongly convex and keeled over 2/3 of length, gibbousity caused by ray achene partially enclosed by phyllary, sparsely glandular-punctate in basal portion, alternate phyllaries with hyaline or scarious margins, apically acute, glabrous; receptacle convex, epaleaceous, glabrous.
Morphology Stem
Stems spreading, 5 – 8 (– 10) cm long, branched near base, densely leafy, purplish and glabrous
Note
Pectis harryi is compared with P. burchellii Baker, but has shorter, narrower leaves (10 – 12 × 0.4 – 0.5 mm vs 10 – 25 × 0.8 – 1 mm), glabrous pedicels (vs puberulous), shorter phyllaries (4 – 5 mm vs 6 – 7 mm), smaller achenes (2.5 – 3 mm vs 3.5 – 4 mm) and shorter pappus setae (3 – 3.5 mm vs 5.5 – 6.5 mm). The species epithet honours the first author’s late father, Harry Hind (1926 – 2011) — a promise made by DJNH to his father (on his deathbed).
Phenology
Judging by the state of flowering and the presence of buds and open capitula, mid-October to late-November.
Type
