Abstract

Five new species of Caraipa endemic to the Venezuelan Guayana are here described and illustrated. Three species are endemic to the Amazonas state: Caraipa acutata, endemic to the Guainía river; Caraipa cordifolia, endemic to the Parú tepui; and Caraipa yutajensis, endemic to the Yutaje tepui. Two species are endemic to Bolívar state: Caraipa kubitzkii was collected on a river margin in uplands; and Caraipa nigrolineata from the uplands. We propose two synonymizations and present an identification key for the 20 species of Caraipa from Venezuela.
