It was growing in a shallow puddle on top of a huge boulder, I couldn't find it growing in drier spots. The puddle was constantly fed by little brooks coming from the mountains.

Bump! Smiling
Could it be in the Campanulaceae family? But then they normally have 5 flower petals instead of only 4.. Rolling my eyes.

Oldenlandia salmannii (Rubiaceae) is the one!! Thanks a lot! Thumbs up
The other species occurring in the Rio state is Oldenlandia corymbosa, but that one has doesn't look like it.
