Abstract

Field and herbarium studies for a taxonomic revision of Cambessedesia have led to the discovery of two new species, Cambessedesia angelana and C. uncinata. Each of these new species has a restricted distribution in campo rupestre, rocky field habitats above 1200m, of Minas Gerais and Bahia states respectively. These new species are described, illustrated, and compared with their presumed closest relatives.
