Distribution and Ecology - In scrub woodland, on ferrous outcrops to 700 m and on lake shores, known only from Sa dos Carajás, near 5o20'-6°05'S in e. Pará, Brazil.— Fl. XII, IV-V, the full season unknown. Map 66.
While loss of pubescence is visually striking, the peculiarity that entitles var. carajarum to taxonomic rank is the stipitate craspedium.
