A new species of Bignoniaceae from Brazilian cerrado and caatinga is described and illustrated: Xylophragma tenue. The species is characterized by its slightly bullate leaves, lateral leaflets with asymmetrical base, loosely branched inflorescence, flowers with tubular calyx with a shortly 5-cuspidate and frequently bilabiate rim, infundibuliform corolla, and capsules flat, woody, smooth, and with raised margins. Comments on distribution, phylogenetic affinities, and comparisons with morphologically similar species are also presented. (AU)
