Flora of Bahia: Limnocharitaceae

Danilo José Lima Sousa, Ana Maria Giulietti, Reyjane Patrícia de Oliveira

Abstract


The floristic survey of the Limnocharitaceae from the state of Bahia, Brazil, is presented. Three species in the genus Hydrocleys (H. martii, H. modesta and H. nymphoides) and two in the genus Limnocharis (L. flava and L. laforestii) were recognized. The treatment includes taxa descriptions and keys for identification, illustrations, distribution maps and comments for species.
