Abstract

Two new species, Macrocarpaea claireae and M. quizhpei (Gentianaceae: Helieae), are described from the Huancabamba region of southern Ecuador. Macrocarpaea claireae occurs around Valladolid, adjacent to P. N. Podocarpus, and M. quizhpei occurs in the Nangaritza watershed. M. claireae is closely related to M. pringleana and M. sodiroana, yet differs notably in its glaucous-green, campanulate-urceolate calyx. Macrocarpaea quizhpei has affinities to M. dies-viridis, but differs in having a large, diffusely branched, open thyrse to 1.3 m high.
