Coffea neoleroyi A.P.Davis   , nom. nov.

Basionym:— Psilanthus leroyi Bridson (1982: 857)   . Type : UGANDA. Karamoja District. Karapedo river, nr. Mt. Zulia, 4000 ft. [1220 m], March 1960, J. Wilson 911 (holotype EA!, isotype K!).

Distribution: —Southwest Ethiopia, northeast Uganda. TDWG: 24 ETH; 25 UGA.

Characteristics:— Coffea neoleroyi   differs from all other African Coffea species   formerly placed in Psilanthus   by its small obovate leaves (apex rounded), and from C. semsei (Bridson)   A.P.Davis by having rounded (vs. distinctly apiculate) calyculi lobes and pedicellate fruits (vs. sessile). Further morphological information for this species can be found in Leroy (1981) and Bridson (1982).

Notes: —A new name is required for this species as there is already a Coffea species   with the same specific epithet: C. leroyi   A.P. Davis ( Davis & Rakotonasolo 2000).
