Article

Summary

Microlicia donii is described, illustrated, and its conservation status is assessed using the IUCN criteria. The proposed new species is compared with two probable relatives, M. pusilla Cogn. and M. ciliatoglandulosa R.Romero. The georeferenced occurrences of M. donii are mapped. Microlicia donii populations may be threatened because they occur outside the borders of the Serra do Cabral State Park.
