Summary

Four new species of Eriocaulon from Bahia, Brazil, are described and illustrated. Eriocaulon botocudo and E. yba occur in the western part of the state, while E. kulumi and E. pyatan inhabit the Chapada Diamantina. Comparisons with morphologically similar taxa, their preferred habitats, and the known distributions of the new species are provided.
