Discussion:These specimens, with the exception of Steyermark 87294, are conspecific with the material cited and discussed in the recent treatment of Lauraceae (Mem. N. Y. Bot. Gard. 10(5): 114. 1964). The afore-mentioned Steyermark number from Delta Amacuro appears to be a larger-leaved variant, the leaves more chartaceous than those of the others cited.
