Abstract

We describe and illustrate the new species Paepalanthus bonsai Trovó & Sano (Eriocaulaceae, Paepalanthoideae) from the Espinhaço Range in Minas Gerais, Brazil. This species is placed in Paepalanthus Martius subsect. Dichocladus Ruhland due to its dichotomously branched stem with rigid linear leaves. The new species is compared with the sympatric and morphologically similar species P. glaziovii Ruhland.
