Joaquim de Almeida Pinto's Diccionario de botanica brasileira was published in 1873. The new scientific names in it have not appeared in the principal indices of phanerogamic scientific names. There are 12 new generic names, 317 new specific epithets, 6 new varieties, and 1 new specific combination in the book. Seven of the specific epithets have later homonyms: Elephantopus littoralis, Erythroxylum stipulosum, Heliconia sylvestris, Hyptis incana, Paspalum aquaticum, Passiflora involucrata, and Salacia corymbosa.
