Abstract

A total of seven species of Cactaceae, including hybrids, are newly recognised or reevaluated for the area defined for the Cacti of Eastern Brazil, some being described for the first time (Tacinga ×grandiflora, Discocactus piscibarbarus). Other taxonomic changes are noted (Tacinga ×quipa, Arrojadoa multiflora, Pilosocereus brauniorum, Micranthocereus alvinii and M. hofackerianus) together with various range extensions and many of the plants concerned are illustrated.

Insgesamt sieben Kakteenarten einschließlich Hybriden werden für das für „Cacti of Eastern Brazil“definierte Gebiet neu anerkannt oder bewertet: einige davon werden erstmals beschrieben (Tacinga ×grandiflora, Discocactus piscibarbarus). Neben weiteren taxonomischen Änderungen (Tacinga ×quipa, Arrojadoa multiflora, Pilosocereus brauniorum, Micranthocereus alvinii und M. hofackerianus) werden verschiedene Arealerweiterungen vermerkt und viele der betreffenden Pflanzen abgebildet.

Sete espécies de Cactaceae, incluindo híbridos, são reconhecidas para a região definida como Brasil Oriental (ver Cacti of Eastern Brazil). Algumas destas espécies são descritas pela primeira vez (Tacinga ×grandiflora, Discocactus piscibarbarus) enquanto mudanças taxonômicas são registradas (Tacinga ×quipa, Arrojadoa multiflora, Pilosocereus brauniorum, Micranthocereus alvinii e M. hofackerianus). Faze-mos também diversas extensões de distribuição, fornecendo ilustrações de grande parte das espécies aqui tratadas.
