By Mauad L.P., de Souza Buturi F.O., de Souza T.P., Nascimento M.T. and Braga J.M.A.


The endemic Brazilian genus Wunderlichia is one of the smallest in Asteraceae. Among its species is found the rare Wunderlichia azulensis, only known to grow in rocky outcrops in Bahia, Minas Gerais, and Espirito Santo states. This work shows the first record of W. azulensis in Rio de Janeiro state and categorizes its conservation status based on the IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria. It is also presented a distribution map showing its relationship to places with low annual rainfall, and its occurrence in three Brazilian biomes.103706708Aguiar, W.M., Gaglianone, M.C., Euglossine bees (Hymenoptera Apidae Euglossina) on an inselberg in the Atlantic Forest domain of southeastern Brazil (2011) Tropical Zoology, 24 (2), pp. 107-125. ,, S., Moat, J., Hill, A., de la Torre, J., Scott, B., Supporting Red List threat assessments with GeoCAT: Geospatial Conservation Assessment Tool (2011) Zookeys, 150, pp. 117-126Barroso, G.M., Maguire, B., A review of the genus Wunderlichia (Mutisiae, Compositae) (1973) Revista Brasileira de Biologia, 33, pp. 379-406(2008) Lista das Espécies Ameaçadas de Extinção da Flora do Estado de Minas Gerais, 48p. , Deliberação Conselho Estadual de Política Ambiental nº 367, de 15 de dezembro de 2008.
