Family:Rubiaceae
Description:Distribution and Ecology - Distribution. Amazonian Peru.

Discussion:This species is somewhat similar to C. cymosa, but has a truncate to subtruncate border of the calyx which is glabrous or nearly so and the disk on the summit of the ovary in C. cymosa is glabrous. The photo of the type specimen from K shows fragments of two inflorescence branches which appear to be in young anthesis with buds not fully opened and with two detached leaves. An examination of the isotype specimen at N Y shows the length of the calyx and hypanthium in pre-anthesis stage to be only 2 m m long. Schumann's description of the calyx and hypanthium as "8 m m " long is probably a typographical error.
