MEYER, Fabrício Schmitz; MEIRELLES, Julia; CADDAH, Mayara Krasinski  and  GOLDENBERG, Renato. New records to the Melastomataceae family to Paraná and Santa Catarina States, Brazil. Hoehnea [online]. 2012, vol.39, n.2, pp.339-345. ISSN 2236-8906.

The genus Henriettea DC. were recorded for the first time in Santa Catarina State, as well as four species of Melastomataceae: Henriettea glabra (Vell.) Penneys, Michelangeli, Judd & Almeda, Leandra tetraquetra (Cham.) Cogn., Miconia racemifera (DC.) Triana and Miconia paniculata (DC.) Naudin. Miconia paniculata and Salpinga margaritacea (Naudin) Triana are also recorded for the first time for Paraná State, and the latter is confirmed for Santa Catarina State, since its occurrence was previosly recorded based in an old and flowerless collection. All these species have their distribution limits extended towards the south, reaching the Paraná and Santa Catarina States. Descriptions, illustrations and taxonomic comments for all these new records are provided.

Keywords : Henriettea; Leandra; Miconia; Salpinga; taxonomy.
