Abstract A new species of Ephedranthus from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest is described and illustrated, and a preliminary key to the species of Ephedranthus is presented. Ephedranthus dimerus is the only species of the genus from the Atlantic Forest region and the first species of the genus with dimerous flowers. It is similar to E. guianensis in having narrowly obovate to elliptic leaves with similar dimensions and a cuneate to acute base. Nevertheless, the two species can be distinguished from each other by the number of monocarps per fruit and by the length of the stipe.
