Monographs Details: Trilepis kanukuensis Gilly
Authority: Maguire, Bassett. 1965. The Botany of the Guayana Highland. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 12 (3): 1-285.
Description:Distribution and Ecology - Distribution. K n o w n only by the type collection.
Discussion:A specimen from Minas Gerais, G. Mendes de Magalhaes 28,101 (F), agrees with T. kanukuensis in vegetative characters, especially in the particular feature of contra-ligules, but the spikelets are too immature for more accurate determination. The locality suggests that this belongs to an undescribed taxon.
