In this study, we present new records of
Faramea nitida that extend the range of this species in
Maranhão state, Brazil. The new data were the result
of fieldwork by us in restinga areas of São José de
Ribamar and Alcântara districts. This report highlights
the rediscovery of a species after many years (30 to 70
years) and shows the necessity for more floristic and
taxonomic studies on extreme northeastern Brazil.
