ABSTRACT
The article introduces a new species of Nidularium from the Atlantic Forest of São Paulo State, Brazil, N. rolfianum, and discusses issues against nominal extinction. It notes that in the case of Bromeliaceae in Brazil, erroneous nominal extinction may lead to the loss of associated flora and fauna, thus, magnifying diversity loss. It describes the physical characteristics of N. rolfianum and explains the etymology of its name. It discusses how N. rolfianum is closely related to, yet differ from N. krisgreeniae Leme.
