Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Typhonium muaklekense sp. nov. was collected from the Muak Lek district, Saraburi province, Thailand. Morphologically, the spathe of this species resembles T. roxburghii Schott and T. varians Hett. & Sookch., but the leaves are distinctly different by orbicular leaf blades. Critical observation and analysis of the specimens indicated that they represent a previously unrecognized species that we are naming T. muaklekense based on its occurrence in the Muak Lek district, Saraburi province, Thailand. Typhonium muaklekense D. Sookchaloem & S. Maneeanakekul is described and illustrated. The new species resembles T. roxburghii Schott and T. varians Hett. & Sookch. in the spathe. Drawings, photographs and a table comparing diagnostic features of T. muaklekense, T. roxburghii and T. varians are provided.
