Monographs Details: Strychnos poeppigii Progel
Authority: Krukoff, Boris A. 1965. Supplementary notes on the American species of Strychnos VII. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 12: 1-94.
Description:Distribution and Ecology - This species is known only from four collections. Two collections are from Amazonian Peru (of which one is from Loreto, basin of Rio Huallaga) and two collections, from Amazonian Brazil (of which one is from the basin of the upper Rio Solimoes in the State of Amazonas). I have not seen J. Huber herb. Mus. Para 4868 from Porto Alegre, basin of the upper Rio Purus, State of Amazonas, Brazil, which Ducke places with this species. (31: 47). Doubtless occurs also in adjacent Colombia and Peru.
Discussion:In Ducke’s key made on the basis of fruit characters, this species comes together with S. mattogrossensis, S. longisepala, and S. tarapotensis (33: 86).
