Abstract

A new species of Kerianthera, K. longiflora Zappi & C. T. Oliveira (Rubiaceae), has been discovered in relicts of Atlantic Forest in Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo, Brazil. This genus was, until now, thought to be monotypic and to occur only in the Amazon. The morphology, phenology and habitat of the new species are discussed and the IUCN conservation status of this and K. preclara are provided. Uma nova espécie de Kerianthera, K. longiflora Zappi & C. T. Oliveira, foi descoberta em remanescentes de floresta Atlântica em Minas Gerais e Espírito Santo, Brasil. Até o presente momento o gênero era tratado como monotípico e com ocorrência conhecida apenas para o estado do Amazonas. A morfologia, fenologia e o habitat da nova espécie são discutidos e as categorias de conservação da IUCN da nova espécie e de K. preclara são apresentadas.
