Abstract

A new species from the highlands of southern Brazil, Ceradenia maackii, is described and compared to its most similar species. The new species is characterized by having small fronds, ciliate rhizome scales, petiole, axes, and laminar tissue without setae, and laminar tissue bluish and densely covered by glandular hairs. Ceradenia maackii is epipetric and known only from “Pico do Paraná” State Park. The new species is illustrated, and a key for Ceradenia from the Atlantic Rain Forest is also provided.
