Aristolochia brunneomaculata, a new threatened species of Aristolochiaceae from the Atlantic Forest in Bahia, Brazil

Ivan Silva Abreu, Ana Maria Giulietti

Abstract


We describe and illustrate Aristolochia brunneomaculata, a new species from the Atlantic Forest in Bahia state, Brazil, a region known for its high number of endemic and threatened species, such as the one described here. The new species is known only from a small population in a disturbed area, near a major industrial complex.
