Abstract

Two new species of Bauhinia L. (Fabaceae, Caesalpinioideae, Cercideae) are described and illustrated: B. miriamae R. Torres endemic to Oaxaca, and B. wunderlinii R. Torres from México, Belize, and Honduras. Similarities to and differences from B. divaricata L. are discussed for both species; all three belong to section Bauhinia. With these novelties, Bauhinia sect. Bauhinia comprises approximately 20 species and is most diverse in Mexico, where there are 19 native and 14 endemic species.
