Abstract:
Two new species of Burmeistera (Campanulaceae: Lobelioideae) from the Cordillera de Talamanca are described, illustrated, and discussed with reference to similar species. One species, B. serratifolia, is endemic to Panama, while the second, B. monroi, is known from both Panama and Costa Rica. Additionally, these species are included in a dichotomous key to all Central American species of Burmeistera.
