Paul's construction is much the more elegant solution, though I would probably have written "A varietate typica ...", but maybe I am too influenced by the English usage of "a" and "an".  John

This can be circumvented by starting
"Ab varietate typica differt ..."
Will be easier to read too.

The Latin diagnosis should start either as:
"Varietas nova Indigoferae rubromarginatae Thulin var. rubromarginata
proxima, ..." or
"Varietas nova Indigoferae rubromarginatae Thulin typicae proxima, ..."

[-- though in writing this, I begin to wonder .. surely "proxima" would
require the dative not the genitive case ("Indigofera rubromarginata ...
typica proxima") -- I don't have my Stearn handy, but Patricia can, I am
sure, tell me why I am wrong.]

Hi, Abdul:
        Your colleague might want to try the following:

Varietas nova Indigoferae rubromarginata Thulin proxima, a qua pedunculo
longo, duplo folium subtentem superante, marginibus foliolorum
non rubrellis atque stipulis longe linearibus ca. 4-5 mm longis
imprimis differt.

Best wishes

Hi Taxacomers,

Could anyone kindly translate the following few line into Latin for a
colleague of mine. I shall be obliged.

Indigofera rubromarginata Thulin var. longipedunculata  var. nov.

The specimen resembles I. rubromarginata Thulin in many respects but differs
by its long peduncle which is twice the length of the subtending leaf,
non-reddish leaflet margins and about 4-5 mm long linear stipules.



Thanks in anticipation.
