Kalanchoe torrejacqii (Crassulaceae subfam. Kalanchooideae) is described as a new phyllo-bulbiliferous species. It occurs in the Namorona River valley, near Ranomafana, southern Madagascar. Differences between K. torrejacqii and the partially sympatric K. laxiflora are discussed and the new species is contrasted with representatives of the K. rosei complex with which it shares some similarities. Kalanchoe torrejacqii is the most northern pink-flowered species among other such species that belong to the recently described K. sect. Invasores, to which K. laxiflora and representatives of the K. rosei complex also belong.
Keywords: Kalanchoe, new species, phyllo-bulbiliferous, Ranomafana Introduction
With some 80 of the ca. 180 known species of Kalanchoe Adanson (1763: 248) indigenous to Madagascar, this island is a present-day centre of species diversity for the genus. Kalanchoe torrejacqii Shtein & Gideon F.Sm. (Crassulaceae subfam. Kalanchooideae) (Fig. 1), a new species of phyllo-bulbiliferous Kalanchoe, is described from the Namorona River valley, near Ranomafana, southern Madagascar. It differs from the closely related and partially sympatric K. laxiflora Baker (1887: 472) by having truncate, at most shallowly auriculate, never peltate, narrower leaves that are sometimes basally lobed; by having a barely stipitate, large, vibrant pink corolla that is at least as wide as the calyx where it is inflated; and by the generally green foliage that is only marked along the less distinctly crenate margins. Similarities with representatives of the K. rosei Raymond-Hamet & Perrier de la Bâthie (1914: 132) complex are discussed.
Material and methods
The description is based on detailed morphological studies of material of K. torrejacqii, as well as of individuals of material with which it shares some characters and could be confused (see ‘Discussion’). Measurements were taken using a ruler, except for floral measurements below 4 mm, which were taken using hand-held magnifying equipment. The new species was compared to other representatives of K. subg. Bryophyllum, with character information for these species obtained from living material and herbarium collections, especially those held at Herb. P.
The infrageneric classification of Kalanchoe followed here recognises four subgenera, i.e., the autonymic one, as well as K. subg. Bryophyllum (Salisbury 1805: t. 3) Koorders (1918: 170), K. subg. Kitchingia (Baker 1881: 268) Smith & Figueiredo (2018: 169), and K. subg. Fernandesiae Smith (2020a: 5). Within K. subg. Bryophyllum, we recognise K. sect. Invasores Shtein & Smith (2021: 105), to which K. torrejacqii belongs, as discussed below.

KALANCHOE TORREJACQII, A NEW SPECIES FROM MADAGASCAR Phytotaxa 498 (3) © 2021 Magnolia Press • 207

Eponymy:—Kalanchoe torrejacqii jointly honours Aldo Torrebruno and Joël Jacq, both of France, who together discovered the species during a field trip through the Namorona River valley, in close proximity to the RN 25, west of Ranomafana, Madagascar (Fig. 3).
Mr Joël Jacq (born 1948) is a self-taught horticulturalist who has been passionate about nature from an early age. His father was a meteorologist, and as a result of his assignments, the family lived in the tropics, mostly in West Africa, and sometimes in very remote areas for 18 years. With his three brothers he spent his childhood discovering the forests, the plains, and the rivers where his family was based. He collects orchids and tropical plants, many of them having been sourced during his travels. Now retired, his daughter, Hélène, is carrying on the family’s interest in nature.
Mr Aldo Torrebruno (born 1964) is a recently retired electrician who specialised in industrial facilities, transformers, and networks. He is the son and grandson of farmers and began collecting plants in 1983 when he experienced a lack of greenery in a new, urban-based life. After having collected Maranta Linnaeus (1753: 2, arrowroot family), orchids, and cacti, he specialised in Sansevieria Thunberg (1794: 65), nom. cons. He enjoys travelling and all his trips have a botanical goal, especially to explore for or research a plant that has not been collected for decades.
Messrs Torrebruno and Jacq have been friends with Mr Philippe Richaud, a cactus and succulent nurseryman in France, for over 25 years. Being aware of Mr Richaud’s passion for Kalanchoe and recognising that K. torrejacqii differs from K. laxiflora, material was later given to Mr Richaud as “Kalanchoe sp.”; Mr Richaud brought it to our attention for identification.

Kalanchoe torrejacqii occurs sympatrically with several other pendant-flowered kalanchoes in the tropical rainforest of Ranomafana. These include K. peltata (Baker 1883: 140) Baillon (1885: 468) var. peltata, K. gracilipes Baillon (1885: 469) var. gracilipes, K. laxiflora, K. miniata Hils. & Bojer ex Tulasne (1857: 149) cf. var. andringitrensis (Perrier de la Bâthie 1924: 22) Perrier de la Bâthie (1928: 19), and K. porphyrocalyx (Baker 1883: 142) Baillon (1885: 469). Out of these species, only K. torrejacqii and K. laxiflora belong to K. [subg. Bryophyllum] sect. Invasores. This is indicated by their ability to produce bulbils on the leaf margins when under stress (see Garcês et al. 2007 for a discussion of this reproductive ability); as well as nectary scales that are ≤ 2× longer than wide; convergent carpels; and a calyx and corolla that are fused for most of their length. Kalanchoe torrejacqii is therefore not particularly closely related to K.

peltata, K. gracilipes, K. miniata, or K. porphyrocalyx (Descoings 2006, Smith & Figueiredo 2018); the former two being completely non-bulbiliferous and having divergent carpels, and therefore placed in their own subgenus, K. subg. Kitchingia; while the latter species, traditionally placed in K. subg. Bryophyllum also do not produce bulbils on their leaf blade margins, though in the case of K. miniata, produce dense inflorescence bulbil clusters, an unrelated trait (see Shtein & Smith 2021).
Within this group, K. torrejacqii is most similar to the orange-flowered K. laxiflora that occurs in central- to south- east Madagascar, from around Antananarivo to Ranomafana and possibly in the Andringitra regions (Fig. 4A). Both species are basally suffrutescent; have nectary scales that are wider than long; apically rounded leaves; often elliptic- oblong leaf blades; a campanulate-urceolate and succulent calyx that is relatively large and wide (almost as wide as long); and free sepal segments that are about as long as wide. However, the corolla of K. laxiflora is orange and < 2× longer than the calyx (compared to pink and 2.5× longer than the calyx in K. torrejacqii) and often distinctly narrower than the calyx. While the corolla in the type material of K. laxiflora, based on the protologue description of the name, is strongly stipitate with an ampulliform stipe much longer than wide, other forms of K. laxiflora and K. torrejacqii are indistinctly short-stipitate with the stipe being much wider than long. Kalanchoe torrejacqii further differs from K. laxiflora by the base of the leaf blade being ± truncate, with an entire proximal end and at most broadly and barely auriculate, as compared to the base of the leaf blades of K. laxiflora being strongly auriculate and crenate-serrate to distinctly peltate; by the obtuse to rounded rather that rounded leaf apex; by the bluntly crenate-serrate to subentire rather than deeply crenate leaf margins; and by the leaf blade being widest in the basal 1⁄2 rather than the apical 1⁄2; and by the dark grey-violet, rather than yellow, pollen (Fig. 4A–C). Finally, unlike K. laxiflora, the leaf blades of K. torrejacqii are sometimes obscurely basally lobed, and lack abaxial or adaxial markings, except on the margins and above the point of petiole insertion (Table 1).
FIGURE 4. Species closely related to Kalanchoe torrejacqii. A. Obscurely maculate and distinctly auriculate-peltate clone of K. laxiflora occurring in a region close to the type locality of K. torrejacqii. B. Conspicuously maculate, oblong-leaved clone of K. laxiflora with distinctively rectangular auricules (below) and barely spreading, narrow corollae, with subacute petals (above). C. Suborbicular, auriculate- peltate clone of K. laxiflora (below) with large flowers and rounded petals (above). D. Simple-, non-peltate-leaved Kalanchoe often attributed to K. rosei var. rosei, showing lanceolate leaves (below), pink flowers, and a small calyx tube (above). E. K. peltigera showing deeply peltate leaves (below), and flimsy-textured calyx and pink corolla (above). Photographs: Ronen Shtein.
Kalanchoe torrejacqii bears some resemblance to representatives of the K. rosei species complex (Fig. 4D–E), which occur further south, around Benenitra, Tsivory, and Behara. This manifests chiefly through the vibrant pink colour of its corolla, its darker violet pollen colour, as well as in the distinctly petiolate leaf blades that are much longer than wide. From K. rosei var. rosei, as well as K. peltigera Descoings (2005: 6), K. torrejacqii differs by having no abaxial leaf markings; by having a leaf blade base that is truncate and proximally entire rather than deeply peltate and crenate-dentate; by having ± flat rather than distinctly guttered leaves; by having a thick rather than flimsy calyx texture; by having a much shorter corolla stipe; and by having apically rounded petals. Furthermore, the leaves of K. torrejacqii are much less often lobed and at most indistinctly so, in comparison to those of K. rosei var. rosei and K. peltigera (Table 1).

From non-peltate and unlobed-leaved plants that are often referred to K. rosei var. rosei, K. torrejacqii differs by having no abaxial leaf markings; by the obtuse rather than acute leaf apex; by the oblong-elliptic rather than lanceolate leaves; by having a larger calyx tube that is not fully adpressed against the corolla base; by the corolla being 2.5× longer than the calyx rather than 3–4× longer; by having sepals that are deltoid and as long as wide or wider, rather than lanceolate and much longer than wide; and by having a short corolla stipe.
Overall, K. torrejacqii presents vegetative and reproductive morphologies that are intermediate between those of the pink-flowered representatives of the K. rosei species complex and the orange-flowered K. laxiflora (Fig. 4). Kalanchoe torrejacqii is the most northern pink-flowered species among other such species that belong to K. sect. Invasores, i.e., the informal groups “Suffrutescentes” or “Bulbiliferae” recognized by Boiteau & Allorge-Boiteau (1995: 16 [page unnumbered]), i.e., K. rosei, K. peltigera, K. diagremontiana Raymond-Hamet & Perrier de la Bâthie (1914: 128), K. laetivirens Descoings (1997: 85) (treated as K. ×laetivirens by Smith 2020b: 105), and K. sanctula Descoings (1997: 87).
We have considered the possibility that K. torrejacqii represents a hybrid, of which one parent would be the sympatric K. laxiflora. However, we do not regard such an interpretation as plausible, as, with the exception of K. torrejacqii, no pink-flowered representatives of K. sect. Invasores, for example K. rosei or K. peltigera, occur anywhere in the vicinity of the tropical rainforest of Ranomafana. Bar K. torrejacqii, the northernmost occurring pink- flowered representatives of K. sect. Invasores are K. daigremontiana, K. laetivirens, K. rosei, and K. peltigera, from the Isalo, Onilahy, and Tsivory regions. Moreover, K. torrejacqii in cultivation is fertile at least to some extent and hybridises readily with other representatives of K. sect. Invasores, as is common in this clade. Note specifically that
present ovate-elliptic

many Kalanchoe species that propagate via bulbils, though not of hybrid origin, do suffer from reduced fertility and malformed pollen (Garcês et al. 2007, Shtein & Smith 2021). Furthermore, several hybrids recognised in Kalanchoe, such as K. ×gunniae Smith & Figueiredo in Smith et al. (2019: 147) and what we have observed for K. ‘Rauhii’, a horticultural trade hybrid attributed to K. rosei by (Shaw 2008: 25), seed viability can be as high as 100%. Thus, reduced fertility and malformed pollen are not useful indicators of hybrid status in this clade, nor in the genus.

Il était mieux en sp. : la pauvre épithète que voilà !... Je comprends rien
La terminaison au génitif singulier signifie qu'elle honore une seule personne, un certain Monsieur Torrejacq, ce qui n'est pas le cas.

Quant à la description, et cela n'engage que moi, mais nous sommes clairement dans du splitting.
La plante est dite très proche de Kalanchoe laxiflora et pousse même en sa compagnie ; les petites différences que l'on tente d'y voir ne me semblent pas justifiées si l'on regarde la description due à Descoings et lisible sur l'ICN. La présence de stipe existait déjà dans la variante K. laxiflora ssp. stipitata, la couleur de corolle est suffisamment variable chez K. laxiflora pour y inclure celle de ce Kalanchoe-là, quant au rapport de longueur calice-corolle, nous pouvons retrouver le même chez K. laxiflora.
