Abstract

The first new species of Denscantia from the caatinga biome is described and illustrated. Denscantia calcicola is easily distinguished by its plicate-nerved and scabrous leaves, axillary inflorescences with 7–15 glomerules, calyx tube 0.85–1.2 mm long, bifid stigma and pollen grains with only one endocingulum.
