RIZZINI, CARLOS TOLEDO. PLANTAE CENTROBRASILIENSES MINUS COGNITAE SEU NOVAE. Rodriguésia [online]. 1980, vol.32, n.52, pp.23-38. ISSN 0370-6583.

A very small population of the dwarf palm Astrocaryum kewense B. Rodr. was found beside the road that passes near the town João Pinheiro, in Minas Gerais. The plant was collected only twice formerly, but at least Burret's specimen is lost. As it is extremely rare and threatened of extinction, a new description was made with full details, and a complete dried specimen was secured. As Species new to science were described Cyclolobium nutans, with small pods and acuminate, hairy leaves, along with Pouteria undulatifolia which possesses leaves wavy at margins, bullate in upper surface, and caudate-falcate at apex. Cordia glabrata was redescribed based on a specimen from cerrado. Peschiera affinis var. campestris, restudied, proved ta deserve specific status under the name of P. campestris; this is a mere urdershrub endowed with a greatly expanded subterranean system composed of thicks, richly branched, gemmiferous roots through which the plant reproduces itself vegetatively with copious wealth.
