As part of taxonomic studies of the genus Acalypha in eastern Brazil, we describe here a new species, Acalypha almadinensis , from the Atlantic Rain Forest, in the states of Bahia and Minas Gerais. This species is morphologically similar to Acalypha brasiliensis and A. accedens, but differs from both mainly by its fleshy pistillate bracts and vinaceous lower leaf surface.
