<p>This analysis presents a revised distribution for Ocotea curucutuensis J.B. Baitello in southeastern Brazil. Because of its strong similarity with Ocotea spixiana (Nees) Mez this species remained unrecognized for over a hundred years after the first collection by A. F. M. Glaziou in 1888, but it was recently shown to be a distinct species. Although the species was originally described from material from the Serra do Mar in S&atilde;o Paulo, subsequent new collections and a wider investigation of herbarium material have shown that it is, in fact, quite widespread, especially in the Serra do Mar and Serra da Mantiqueira and that it is necessary to revise and enlarge the known distribution. O. curucutuensis has a wide distribution in forests in the higher parts of the Serra do Mar and Serra da Mantiqueira, in the states of Rio de Janeiro and S&atilde;o Paulo, in the southeast of Brazil, while O. spixiana has a more northerly distribution.</p>
