Collection trip: Federative Republic of BrazilDate collected: November 2012
Upon arrival we met with our collaborator and guide for the trip Dr. Fátima Agra (JPB) of the Univerdidade Federal de Paraíba who lead the Solanaceae session of the meeting (Fig1).
The collecting trip was focused in the state of Paraíba with a brief foray into Pernambuco and Ceará states in order to collect Solanum absconditum Agra (Fig 2 & 3), a species that is currently in press for publication. Other interesting collections include Solanum polytrichum Moric. (Fig 4) and Solanum paraibanum Agra (Fig 5) from the Atlantic Coastal forest and Solanum jabrense Agra & M.Nee (Fig 6) from the "caatinga" forests.
