Summary

During our January 2001 expedition to the tepuis of Venezuela, we also explored parts of the 'Macizo de Chimanta', the Chimanta Massif in the southwest part of the Gran Sabana. During this exploration we found a previously undescribed species of Heliamphora most notable for its pitcher shape and the spoon shaped lids. This species seems to be more closely related to Heliamphora tatei than to any of the other species described so far from the Gran Sabana. Heliamphora chimantensis is described.

Keywords: new taxa: Heliamphora chimantensis, Venezuela
