Abstract

Pleroma michelangelii, a new species of Melastomeae (Melastomataceae) from Brazil is described and illustrated, and compared to its putative closest relatives. In addition to this species, Tibouchina trinervia, which was previously not validly published by Glaziou, is now correctly presented under Pleroma. Pleroma trinervia occurs in the Espinhaço range in Minas Gerais state, and Pleroma michelangelii in Chapada Diamantina, Bahia.
