Lara Pugliesi de Matos, Ana Maria Giulietti, Reyjane Patrícia de Oliveira


The taxonomic treatment of Chloranthaceae from the Bahia state, Brazil, is presented here. Hedyosmum brasiliense is the only species of the family in Bahia. Descriptions, illustrations, notes and a distribution map of the species in the state are presented.
