Figure 1. A leaf of Sabinaria magnifica.

The new palm genus Sabinaria (Cryosophileae, Coryphoideae, Arecaceae) and the new species Sabinaria magnifica are from the Colombia-Panama border. Sabinaria differs from other genera in the tribe in the leaf blades with a single deep, medial, abaxial split, and short abaxial splits in each segment, mostly unisexual flowers with biseriate perianth, calyx connate with the corolla at a single place on its margin, large, tightly appressed, persistent rachis bracts that hide the pistillate flowers, and fruits tightly packed and hidden among leaf bases, often covered by litter.

Type species:

Sabinaria magnifica Galeano & R. Bernal


Named after the daughter of the discovers, Gloria Galeano, & Rodrigo Bernal; Sabina Bernal Galeano, with the suffix –ria arbitrarily chosen, in accordance with Art. 20 of the International Code of Nomenclature (McNeill et al. 2012).
