Michella Del Rei Teixeira, Julio Antonio Lombardi, Reyjane Patricia de Oliveira, Ana Maria Giulietti


A taxonomic treatment of the Oleaceae from Bahia, Brazil, is present as a contribution to the knowledge of the flora of the state. Four species of the genus Chionanthus are recognized: C. crassifolius, C. filiformis, C. micranthus and C. parviflorus. The taxonomic treatment consists of an identification key, descriptions, comments, illustrations and distribution maps of the species in Bahia.
