Authority: Berg, Cornelius C. 2001. Moreae, Artocarpeae, and (Moraceae): With introductions to the family and and with additions and corrections to Flora Neotropica Monograph 7. Fl. Neotrop. Monogr. 83: 1-346. (Published by NYBG Press)
Discussion:Additional collections made since the publication of monograph 7 affected the taxonomy of the genus, in particular sect. Noyera. A new species has been added, Perebea mennegae C. C. Berg (1978b). Descriptions of some species could be made more complete or precise (such as for P. longepedunculata and P. tessmannii). In many cases the ranges of distribution became better known. The unnamed collections listed in Monograph 7 are now accommodated: Woytkowski 5534 in P. tessmannii and the others in P mennegae.
