ANDRÉ DOS SANTOS BRAGANÇA GIL, VOLKER BITTRICH, MARIA DO CARMO ESTANISLAU DO AMARAL

Abstract


Neomarica eburnea and N. floscella, two new species of Iridaceae (Trimezieae) from Bahia state (Northeastern Brazil) are here described. Illustrations, diagnostic comparisons with morphologically similar species and an identification key for the species of the genus occurring in Bahia state are presented.
