Abstract

A revision of the South American woody bamboo genus Atractantha is presented, including a key to the species, and descriptions, illustrations, and distribution maps for all five recognized taxa. The Bahia (Brazil) species A. aureolanata and A. cardinalis, both with large, attenuate florets but differing in culm leaf morphology, foliage leaf blade width, and lemma indument, are newly described. Possible affinities of Atractantha with Alvimia, Arthrostylidium, and Elytrostachys are discussed.
