Authority: Maguire, Bassett. 1965. The Botany of the Guayana Highland. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 12 (3): 1-285.
Family:Euphorbiaceae
Description:Distribution and Ecology - Distribution. Tree of 10 m, known only from its type locality. The trunk is made into canoes by the Indians.

Discussion:Although the general appearance of the leaves reminds one of C. matourensis, the indumentum is so different that it can hardly be related to that species. However, the lack of flowers and fruits make it impossible to establish its definite systematic position. Its most likely affinity is C. polgpleurus.
