Discussion:The collection Nee 30878 (from Bolivar, Venezuela) has turbinate inflorescences with the staminate flowers confined to its upper part. In young fruiting state the upper part is separated from the lower fruit-containing part by a constriction, due to which the (developing) infructescence resembles that of Trymatococcus amazonicus.Use. The fibers of inner bark are used to make bark cloth (Bolivia. Beni; Colombia. Vaupés).
