BOVE, Claudia Petean. A new species of Utricularia (Lentibulariaceae) from central Brazil. Rev. bras. Bot. [online]. 2008, vol.31, n.4, pp.555-558. ISSN 0100-8404.

Utricularia cochleata C. P. Bove (Lentibulariaceae) from the "cerrado" (savanna) in central Brazil is described and illustrated. It is similar to Utricularia aureomaculata Steyerm. and Utricularia steyermarkii P. Taylor and can be distinguished from both by the densely branched traps, smaller lower calyx lobe, with rounded apex, the spur longer than the lower lip, insertion of the thecae below the filament apex, and the ciliate stigma.

Keywords : cerrado; hydrophyte; insetivorous; taxonomy; Utricularia.
