Monographs Details: Miconia gonioclada Triana
Authority: Wurdack, John J. 1967. Plants collected in Ecuador by W. H. Camp. Melastomataceae. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 16: 1-45.
Discussion:The second record known subsequent to the original Seemann collection is Camp E-225, from Cerro Villanaco, just west of Loja, 28 Jul. 1944; a more recent specimen is Harling 5703 (S), from near La Toma, Loja, 9 Jul. 1959. One notable feature, not mentioned by Triana and Cogniaux but seen on the holotype (K) and the other collections, is the caducously setulose young branchlets; the stamen connective has a dorsal ascending appendage free 0.2-0.3 mm, as well as inconspicuous sterile thecae bases ventrally.
