Abstract

A new species of Alophia (Tigridieae, Iridaceae), only known from the Brazilian Amazon, is here described and illustrated. Alophia graniticola was found growing over granite outcrops in the Serra dos Carajás mountain range, Pará state, Northern Brazil, inside or at the edges of dry deciduous forests. This is the third native species of Alophia registered in Brazil, differing from the other species of the genus by the anthers with an incurved apex, an unprecedented feature in the genus. An identification key for all Alophia species is also provided.
