Discussion:Pseudochimarrhis barbata Ducke, Archiv. Jard. Bot. Eio Janeiro 4: 178. 1925, type: Inter Boim et Serra de Humayta, in silvis primariis non inundatis regione fluminis Tapajoz, Brazil, 8-4-1924, J. G. Kuhlmann 17384 (R). As stated by Bremekamp (Trav. Bot. Neerl. 31: 260), the characters upon which Ducke founded his genus Pseudochimarrhis differ in no significant details to justify separation of the genus from Chimarrhis. Rizzini (Rev. Bras. Biol. 7(2) : 275. 1947), likewise, confirms Bremekamp's views.
