Abstract [en]

Ixora clarae and I. elisae (Rubiaceae) are two endemic species described from New Caledonia. Ixora clarae is easily recognised by its (1-)3-flowered inflorescences, made up by thick and large flowers embedded in a calyculus. It is known from a few specimens collected on the nearest mountains by Nouméa, and is considered as endangered (EN). Ixora elisae is remarkable for its very enlarged campanulate calyx-limb. The latter one, from the Isle of Pines and Lifou, known by just two herbarium collections, is probably on its way to disappear in nature. Consequently, it is proposed to a critically endangered (CR) classification.
