Typhonium rhizomatosum, Typhonium cordifolium, new record, matK, trnL-F.


Typhonium rhizomatosum A.Galloway & P.Schmidt is reported here as a new record to the flora of Vietnam. It is described and illustrated with detailed photographs of key morphological characters. Besides, the sequences of matK and trnL-F regions were also successfully sequenced to confirm its identity.
