Francisco Eriberto de Lima Nascimento, Antonio Santos-Silva

Resumo


Eclipta dendensis Nascimento & Santos Silva, 2017 (nomen nudum) is validated. The Neotropical genus Eclipta Bates, 1873, together with five other genera, composes a generic complex in Rinotragini, which were previously allocated in Ommata White, 1855. In Brazil, many species of Eclipta are distributed in the Amazon and Atlantic forest regions. In this work, Eclipta dendensis sp. nov. from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest  is described and illustrated.
