The Serra de São José is a mountain range within Cerrado (Brazilian savanna) biome, situated in the south of Minas Gerais state, Brazil. The predominant vegetation of the study area is campo rupestre (Brazilian rocky savanna). The latter formation, better known from the Espinhaço Chain, is the scene of many speciation events and comprises several rare species. Thirteen species of the family Lentibulariaceae belonging to the two genera occurring in Brazil are listed, briefly diagnosed, and ecologically commented herein.
