(On the taxonomic identity and conservation status of Campomanesia ilhoensis Mattos and C. viatoris Landrum (Myrtaceae)). Based on a taxonomic study of Campomanesia Ruiz & Pavón in the state of Bahia, Brazil, we observed that C. ilhoensis Mattos and C. viatoris Landrum belong to the same taxonomic entity. Both names are legitimate and validly published; however, C. ilhoensis has priority over C. viatoris, which has been in use since 1984. In addition, the distribution of the more inclusive
more » ... more inclusive species is now known to extend from Bahia to Ceará. A new conservation status for this species is suggested because of a better knowledge of its distribution.
