Summary

Senecio albus J. N. Nakaj. & A. M. Teles, a new species of Senecio (Senecioneae Asteraceae), is described from the National Park of Serra da Canastra, Minas Gerais, Brazil. The new species shares discoid capitula with S. gertii Zardini and is assigned to sect. Adamantina. This character is not in the circumscription for the sect. Adamantina and thus the description of the section is emended accordingly. A key to species of Senecio sect. Adamantina is provided.
