BARROSO, Graziela Maciel  and  PEIXOTO, Ariane Luna. A new species of Calyptranthes (Myrtaceae) from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Acta Bot. Bras. [online]. 1996, vol.10, n.1, pp.79-83. ISSN 0102-3306.

Occuring on the Tinguá Biological Reserve in the municipality of Nova Iguaçu, Rio de Janeiro state, is described. It is a small tree from the intermediate or inferior layer of the Atlantic forest and is conspicuous because of the dense, reddish indumentum on its branches, petioles and lower blade surface. Due to its architectural form with small rounded canopy and the beauty of its exfoliating branches, the new species may prove useful for ornamental plantings in shady areas.

Keywords : Calyptranthes; Myrtaceae; Atlantic forest.
