Abstract

A taxonomic history of about 200 yr has resulted in a challenging and problematic circumscription of perhaps the most elegant species of Sauvagesia (Ochnaceae) in campo rupestre vegetation of the Espinhaço Range in Brazil. This work newly describes and reestablishes two longneglected species of the Sauvagesia elegantissima species complex, Sauvagesia bryoclada and S. spicata, respectively. Morphological descriptions, illustrations, a distribution map, the conservation status, and a comparative table with the main diagnostic characters of the three species that make up the species complex are provided.
