Fiaschi, P. (Herbário André Maurício Vieira de Carvalho, CEPEC/CEPLAC, Rodovia Ilhéus-Itabuna, Km 22, Itabuna, Bahia, C.P. 7, 45600-970, Brazil; pedrofiaschi@hotmail.com). Three new species of Dendropanax (Araliaceae) from Bahia, Brazil. Brittonia 57: 240–247. 2005.—Three new species of Brazilian Dendropanax from the rain forests of Bahia state are described and illustrated. Dendropanax amorimii, endemic to the rain forests near Boa Nova, in southern Bahia, is characterized by compound umbellate inflorescences with elongated primary branches each having a proximal whorl of bracts, and by leaves with well- developed tertiary venation. Dendropanax bahiensis, endemic to the Atlantic rain forests of southern Bahia, is distinguished by its large and membranous leaves with reddish schizogenous glands on the abaxial surface and by the reduced and branched inflorescences with short-pedicellate flowers and large fruits. Dendropanax geniculatus, an endemic species from the “matas de grotão” of Serra da Chapadinha, Chapada Diamantina, is characterized by simple and usually geniculate inflorescences bearing long-pedicellate flowers and fruits.
