The notion that the widespread mangrove genus Ceriops consists of three species. C. australis (White) Bailment, Smith & Stoddart, C. decandra (Griff.) Ding Hou and C. tagal (Perr.) C. B. Rob., is still widely accepted. However, our recent studies have shown that the previously recognized species Ceriops decandra can be separated into three species, C. decandra, C. zippeliana Blume and Ceriops pseudodecandra sp. nov. Sheue, Liu, Tsai & Yang based on morphological and molecular evidence. The last entity is newly described in this treatment, which has been misapplied with the name C. decandra for several decades in Australia, Papua New Guinea and Scram, New Guinea (Irian Jaya) of Indonesia. Morphologically, the new species is more similar to C. decandra and C. zippeliana than to C. australis and C. togal. Furthermore, molecular phylogenetic analysis also supports the notion that C. pseudodecandra is distinctly a new species. Here, the botanical descriptions with an illustration and the distribution ranges of the related species are provided. A key to differentiate species of Ceriops and a comparison with an emphasis on these three morphologically similar species are given as well.
