Abstract:
Cerasus xueluoensis C.H. Nan & X.R. Wang, a new species from Hubei and Jiangxi provinces, China, is described, illustrated and compared with its congeners. It is somewhat similar to C. tomentosa and C. tianshanicae, but it is distinguished by its 2–4-flowered umbellate inflorescences, much longer pedicels (0.6–2.5 cm), a glabrous pistil and black drupes. A key to distinguish it from the other species of subgen. Microcerasus in China is provided.
