Monographs Details: Naucleopsis naga subsp. meridionalis C.C.Berg
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)
Description:Species Description - Lamina puberulous or subhispidulous (and then scabridulous) on the lower surface; the smaller veins ± prominent; stipules to 1.5 cm long. Pistillate inflorescences with the inner involucral bracts to 2.5 cm long.

Discussion:The two subspecies occur sympatrically in Ecuador and Colombia, although there seems to be a difference in preference to elevation. The differentiation into an entity with glabrous leaves and one with leaves hairy beneath is similar to the situation found in Naucleopsis ulei. However, in N. naga the two morphological entities are more different than in N. ulei, and may prove to be distinct at the species level.
