A taxonomic treatment for the Melastomataceae occurring in the cangas of Serra dos Carajás is presented. A total of 42 species in 18 genera were registered, of which Miconia is the richest with 20 species, followed by Clidemia with three species. The monotypic genus Brasilianthus (B. carajensis) is considered endemic to the region of Carajás, as well as one species of Pleroma. This work presents morphological descriptions, identification keys of genera and species, illustrations, geographic distribution and comments for the species treated.

Keywords : Ironstone outcrops; Amazon; Brasilianthus; endemism.
