AUGUSTO FRANCENER, RAFAEL FELIPE DE ALMEIDA, MARIA CANDIDA HENRIQUE MAMEDE

Abstract


A new species of Byrsonima (Malpighiaceae), and a replacement name, along with a status change are proposed. These taxonomic novelties are endemic to rocky fields in the southwest of Minas Gerais state, Brazil. We present full morphological descriptions, illustrations, distribution maps and comments on conservation, distribution, and taxonomic affinities of both species.
