Abstract [en]

The new genus Hirania (Sapindaceae), with the single species H. rosea from south-central Somalia, is decribed and illustrated. It is a shrub with simple, entire leaves, alternate or crowded on short-shoots, and without stipules. The inflorescences are branched with monochasially arranged, unisexual flowers. The flowers (only male ones known) are zygomorphic with five sepals with gland-tipped hairs along margins, four pink, subequal, clawed petals without appendages, and eight, glabrous stamens. The dark purple disk is narrow and tubular and consists of an upper broader segment partly enclosing a lower narrower segment. The closest relative is believed to be the Australian genus Diplopeltis.
