Peltogyne chrysopis, an emergent tree of Bahian Atlantic Forest notable for subsessile, globose flowers with rudimentary solid hypanthium, densely white-velutinous sepals and ovary, and planocompressed, elliptic-suborbicular fruits narrowly winged along the short seminiferous suture, is described and figured. A key to species of Peltogyne known from the state of Bahia is provided.
