Abstract

A new species of Ficus sect. Pharmacosycea, confined to the coastal plains of northwestern Ecuador, is here described and illustrated as Ficus carvajalii Pederneiras, Pelissari and Romaniuc. It is characterized mainly by the crateriform apex of the siconium, length of stipule and peduncle, and shows similarities with F. apollinaris and F. maxima. Discussions on taxonomy, geographic distribution, and conservation status are provided, as well as an identification key to the species of the subsect. Petenensis in Ecuador.
