Abstract

Cheilanthes pantanalensis, a new species from the Brazilian Pantanal is described. A complete morphological description is presented, as well as illustrations and comments on the most similar species. This species is distinguished by its (2-)3-pinnate leaves and by having ultimate segments that are ovate to suborbicular. We also report Cheilanthes hassleri and C. obducta as new records for Brazil, both from Mato Grosso do Sul.
