Description:Distribution and Ecology - Distribution: Peru (Loreto, basin of Rio Marañon, and San Martin, basin of Rio Huallaga, where it is common); Brazil (Amazonas, basin of the middle Rio Jurua, and Territory of Acre, basin of the upper Rio Purus). Sterile specimen (Killip, Dugand & Jaramillo 39309) has been placed by us with this species with reservation. It has been collected in Colombia, Cundinamarca (between Tocaima and Pubenza). Doubtless occurs also in Bolivia in the region adjacent to the Territory of Acre. I have not seen any specimens from the basin of Rio Acre to which Ducke refers in his paper (31: 48).

Discussion:For information on its position in Ducke’s key made on the basis of fruit characters, see under S. Poepigii.
