Abstract

A new species of Dyckia (Bromeliaceae, Pitcairnioideae) from Maranhão, Northeastern Brazil is described and illustrated. Dyckia maranhensis is endemic in the cerrado phytogeographic domain and it was erroneously identified as D. braunii Rauh in herbarium collections. Information on its phenology, distribution, and conservation status is provided. The species is morphologically compared to D. dissitiflora Schult. & Schult. f., which is the most similar species.
