Abstract: The species of the genus Heteropsis, known throughout Brazilian Amazonia as "cipó-titica", have long been the target of intensive commercial collection because of the valuable fibre which is made from their aerial roots. The fibre is widely used in regional craft manufacture and forms part of the extractive industry of the region, based on forest products. In this study, two new species are described, Heteropsis duckeana M. L. Soares and H. croatii M. L. Soares, and a new combination is made, H. robusta (G. S. Bunting) M. L. Soares; descriptions, illustrations and conservation status are given. © The Board of Trustees of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, 2009.
