Flora of Bahia: Cunoniaceae

Pâmela Novais Oliveira, Lucas Cardoso Marinho, Luciano Paganucci de Queiroz, Ana Maria Giulietti


We present a floristic survey of the Cunoniaceae of the state of Bahia, Brazil. Four species in two genera were found: Lamanonia speciosa, restricted to the Conquista Plateau, in the southeast of the state; L. ternata, widely distributed in the Chapada Diamantina and Atlantic Forest of southern Bahia; Weinmannia humilis, recorded here for the first time in Bahia, only in the montane forests of the south of the state; and W. paulliniifolia, restricted to the Chapada Diamatina. A taxonomic key, descriptions, illustrations, and general notes on species distribution and morphological affinities are provided.
