Discussion:Individuals of this species start to flower as shrubs of 1-3 m height, but may become trees to 20 m tall throughout the range of distribution, or occasionally to 35-40 m tall. The tertiary venation varies from ± clearly scalariform in relatively large and broad laminas to (almost) reticulate in relatively small and narrow laminas. The inflorescence-bearing short-shoots remain short, 1-2 mm long. Two forms can be distinguished: the most widespread and common form with rather sparse appressed indumentum on the leafy twigs, lower lamina surface, and fruiting perianth, and a less common form (represented by Ceron et al 3863, Gudiño 318, and Palacios 2004) which is densely (sub)tomentose to pubescent on the parts mentioned.
