The two endemic, endangered species, Bacch­aris hypericifolia (Asteraceae) and Hypericum salvadorense (Hypericaceae), were known only for the Rio Grande do Sul state, in Brazil. In this paper we report two new occurrences of these species in Santa Catarina, expanding their geographic distribution to the north. Baccharis hypericyfolia and H. salvadorense were collected in areas of PPBio (Programa de Pesquisa em Biodiversidade) project. These novelties evidence the presence of knowledge gaps regarding the flora and little collecting effort in the grasslands from Southern Brazil.
