A New Species of Macroditassa (Apocynaceae-Asclepiadoideae) from Minas Gerais, Brazil
Abstract:Macroditassa mantiqueirae , a new species of Apocynaceae-Asclepiadoideae from Minas Gerais, Brazil, is presented. It is morphologically related to M. lagoensis and M. marianae because of the presence of cucullate corona lobes. Macroditassa mantiqueirae can be distinguished from M. lagoensis and M. marianae by the presence of papillose corolla lobes, inner corona lobes cucullate, and by the inflexed apex of the outer lobes.
