The tribe Spathicarpeae is one of the most poorly known-tribes in the Araceae. Recently, field collections in some areas of Bolivia have revealed many interesting members of this tribe. Two new species, Gorgonidium striatum Hett., P. L. Ibisch & E. G. Gonç. and Spathantheum fallax Hett., P L. Ibisch & E. G. Gonç. are here described, illustrated, and compared to their closest relatives.
