The expedition which enabled the senior author to find the species which is the subject of this paper, as well as many other novelties, was made possible due to a generous grant from the National Geographic Society, to whom we are greatly indebted. The senior author also wishes to acknowledge the support of the botanical staff of the Herbarium, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and of the Department of Biology of the State University of Feira de Santana, Bahia, Brazil, where part of these studies were carried out, also for the financial support of CNPq, Brazil, in connection with the Flora of Bahia project (processes 562278/2010-9 and 483909/2012). We would also like to thank Thea Charrot-Hickling for the illustration of Eriope viscosa.
