Data from: Tricky Morphology: A new species of Chamaecrista (Leguminosae) shows strong morphological convergence among not closely related species found in similar habitat

Matheus Martins Teixeira Cota, Juliana Gastaldello Rando, Cristiane Snak & Luciano Paganucci De Queiroz
Plants from Brazilian campos rupestres usually present morphological strategies that allow them to survive in extreme environments. However, in Chamaecrista (Leguminosae, Caesalpinioideae), one of the most diverse genera in the campos rupestres, needle-like leaflets are rare. Reviewing the species that present such leaf morphology, we describe Chamaecrista acicularis, a new species, from the Canastra Range, in the southwestern region of the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Phylogenetic analyses revealed that C. acicularis is not closely...
