Journal of species listsand distribution
Myrtaceae have pantropical distribution, with about 144 genera (Judd et al. 1999) 3,500 to 5,800 species in the world (Lima and Guedes-Bruni 2004), and about 1,000 in Brazil (Schultz 1984). The Brazilian species of Myrtaceae, are characterized for wood habit, leaves opposite, simple, entire, with pellucid glands containing ethereal oils. (Juddet al. 1999, APG III 2009). For the state of Santa Catarina, 23 species of Myrceugenia (Legrand and Klein 1970; Landrum 1981; 1984; Sobral 2003) and 37 species of Myrcia (included Gomidesia in this genus, Sobral 2003; Legrand and Klein 1967, 1969, 1977), are cited. Collection trips were made from May/2004 to June/2006 in high montane and montane ombrophilous dense forest (Veloso 1992) on MonteCrista, Garuva municipality, and on Castelo dos Bugres, in Joinville municipality, in Santa Catarina state, where two species were collected for the first time in the state. The maps (Figures 1 and 2) were built with DIVA-GIS 5.2. The geographic coordinates in Santa Catarina state, taken in field and the additional ones were taken from MBM herbarium and literature (Lima and Guedes-Bruni 2004; Landrum1981) and data bank hosted in CRIA (2008). Myrcia squamata Mattos and D. Legrand and Myrceugenia seriatoramosa (Kiaersk.) D. Legrand and Kausel, are first recorded for the state of Santa Catarina. Now 38 species of Myrcia and 24 of Myrceugenia are assigned, increasing the number of Myrtaceae species in the state. This two species are found in Garuva and Joinville municipality. Samples of plantsare hosted in Joinvillea Herbaria (JOI) of the UNIVILLE (Universidade da Região de Joinville). Myrceugenia seriatoramosa (Kiaersk.) D. Legrand and Kausel, Comun. Bot. Mus. Hist. Nat.

Abstract: Myrtaceae have pantropical distribution, with about 3,500 to 5,800 species in the world, and about 1,000 in Brazil. In Santa Catarina state, 23species of Myrceugenia and 37 species of Myrcia, included Gomidesia in this genus, are known. Collection trips were made in the cities of Garuva and Joinville, where Myrcia squamata and Myrceugenia seriatoramosa were found for the first time in Santa Catarina. Currently, 38 species of Myrcia and 24 of Myrceugenia are confirmed, increasing the number of Myrtaceae species in this state.
