Abstract

Tetragastris Gaertn., a genus of nine species, is represented by three well-defined species in eastern Brazil. All of them are restricted in distribution, and two are in danger of extinction. T. catuaba, lost since it was based on an apparently misplaced collection, is rediscovered and a neotype is designated; it figures in a particularly confusing debate in Brazilian ethnobotany. T. occhionii, the most archaic species in the genus, is endemic to the coastal dune vegetation of Bahia. T. breviacuminata is restricted to the steep forested mountains in and around the city of Rio de Janeiro.
