GOMES, Mario. New species from Coussarea Aubl. and Faramea Aubl. (Rubiaceae, tribe Coussareae). Acta Bot. Bras. [online]. 2003, vol.17, n.3, pp.439-448. ISSN 1677-941X.

Four new species of the Rubiaceae, tribe Coussareae are described and illustrated: Coussarea bocainae; Faramea hymenocalyx; F. paratiensis and F. picinguabae. They are based on the material collected in the Parati Mountains, located on the border between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo States, near the coast. This mountainous area is part of the Serra da Bocaina National Park, which is covered mainly by Atlantic Rain Forest. These new taxa are found in this forest within the Park.

Keywords : Rubiaceae; Coussarea; Faramea; Atlantic Rain Forest.
