Monographs Details: Croton yavitensis Croizat
Authority: Maguire, Bassett. 1965. The Botany of the Guayana Highland. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 12 (3): 1-285.
Description:Distribution and Ecology - Distribution. Known only from the holotype.

Discussion:The material available is too meager to establish the systematic position of this species with certainty. Only 11 leaves and 5-6 capsules with a few seeds are available. The original description is also sketchy. The leaves at the base are not "subauriculatis" but subcordatis. The statement: "stipulis subnuUis" is misleading, the fragment of branch is too old and all the stipules are lost. The capsule is 1.5 cm high (not 1.5 mm).
