Abstract

A new species, Cyanocephalus veadeiroensis, from the Chapada dos Veadeiros region, Goiás state, which was first recognized on Facebook, is here described and illustrated. This new species is unique due to the combination of densely imbricate leaves obscuring the stems, the leaves longer than the internodes, the secondary veins almost parallel to the main vein, the margin entire to serrate and the leaf apex acuminate. The new species is compared with morphologically similar species such as Cyanocephalus adpressus and Cyanocephalus lanatus. We also provide comments on the distribution, ecological aspects and recognition of this taxon.
