Abstract

A new species of Sorocea A. Saint-Hilaire, S. carautana M. D. M. Vianna, Carrijo & Romaniuc (Moraceae s. str.), was discovered in the hills of southern Rio de Janeiro in the vicinity of Paraty. The new species resembles S. hilarii Gaudichaud by the similar shape of the leaves, but is clearly distinguished by its longer pistillate pedicel. This new species is endemic to the Atlantic Forest and is threatened due to its restricted geographic area of occurrence.
