A new species of Moldenhawera is described from the state of Bahia in Brazil. Moldenhawera intermedia differs from all other species in the genus by its combination of pinnate leaves with acute to caudate apices, its pink petals, pentamerous flowers, and the staminode filaments 1.5 to 2.5 × longer than the anthers which dehisce by slits not pores. The species has a suite of morphological characters that place it intermediate between all three described sections of the genus, suggesting that the supra-specific taxonomy of Moldenhawera will benefit from a future reappraisal.
