Abstract


Hydrocharitaceae is represented by five genera and seven species in the state of Bahia: Apalanthe granatensis, Egeria densa, Halophila decipiens, Limnobium laevigatum, Najas conferta, N. guadalupensis, and N. marina. We present an identification key, descriptions, illustrations, comments, and distribution maps of the species in Bahia.
