Pachypodium inopinatum (Apocynaceae), a new species from Madagascar
P. inopinatum was discovered in 1993 in a remote area of central Madagascar. Differences between this species and P. rosulatum, which also occurs on the island, are described. Plants are highly succulent with a swollen, cylindrical, smooth, grey main stem to 35 cm tall and 25-40 cm in diameter and with up to ~250 leaf rosettes. The inflorescences have 2-5 flowers and these have an ivory-coloured corolla and corolla lobes which are 20-22 mm long.
