Abstract

During a taxonomic revision of Pourouma (Urticaceae), a new species was discovered. Pourouma amacayacuensis, endemic to the municipality of Leticia, Amazonas, Colombia is here described and illustrated. This species is morphologically similar to P. floccosa, but is distinguished by foliar lamina with apex acute to acuminate, adaxial surface scabrous, abaxial surface of stipules with indument yellowish, hirsute, and fruiting perianth with indument brown-yellowish, velutinous.
