Thismia terengguanensis M.Y. Siti-Munirah

Thismia terengguanensis, only known from the type location in the Telemong Forest Reserve in Terengganu/Malaysia, was described by Siti-Munirah & Nikong (2019). The species has the unique combination of the following features: the floral tube has brownish stria, inner tepals forming an arch-like mitra, which develops horizontally spreading, long filiform appandages, the outer tepals bend project horizontally or bend downwards, the blunt connectives have no apical appendages. Siti-Munirah & Nikong (2019) causiously affiliate T. terengguanensis to the Thismia sect. Sarcosiphon or sect. Geomitra, but stress the differences in details.
