3.9. Eugenia neogracilis Mazine & Sobral   , nom. nov.

Eugenia gracilis O.Berg   , Linnaea 27: 149. 1856 (name); Fl. Bras. 14(1): 222. 1857 (type: São Paulo, Sellow s.n., B, probably destroyed. Neotype here designated: Brasil, Espírito Santo, mun. Santa Teresa, Pedra da Onça , V. Demuner   500, MBML), not Eugenia gracilis Bedd., Madras J. Lit. Sci.   3(1): 46. 1854.

Although originally collected in the Brazilian state of São Paulo, we do not have any information of additional collections there; nevertheless, this species has been frequently collected in montane regions of the southeastern Brazilian state of Espírito Santo. Among recent collections in MBML (for a list of them check E. gracilis   in CRIA 2010), Demuner 500 bears abundant flowers and adequately matches the protologue of E. gracilis   ; herein we propose it as the neotype.
