Meliosma chartacea Lombardi (Sabiaceae), a new species from southeastern Brazil, is described from Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo. It is characterized by its entire internal petals, very short petiole (generally less than 1 cm), brochidodromous venation, and entire leaf margin. A key to determine the species from southeastern Brazil is presented. Lectotypes and new synonyms are proposed for formerly described Brazilian species: M. sellowii Urban and M. itatiaiae Urban.
