Ducke (31: 23) refers to a collection from Parintins in the State of Amazonas and another collection from the State of Maranhão (Guimaraes & Viana) but I have not seen these specimens.
Discussion:The range of this species is rather extensive but nowhere does it appear to be common.
For information on the position of this species in Ducke’s key made on the basis of fruit characters, see under S. rondeletioides.
