Abstract

Calliandra subspicata (Fabaceae) hitherto had been reported from Pernambuco and Bahia, states of the Northeast Region of Brazil. Here we report this species from Paraíba state, the third state of this region. It was observed and collected at the Pico do Jabre State Park, a conservation unit situated at the residual massif of the Depression Sertaneja on the Borborema Plateau, which reaches an altitude of 1197 m. The identification was made on the basis of current literature. A morphological description, images, information about the area where the taxon was collected, and a key for identification of the species of Calliandra recorded in Paraíba state are provided.
