Discussion:Examination of two photos of presumed type material at B does not offer conclusive satisfactory evidence for a study of this species. Both photos (numbers 63 and 64) are labeled "marked original in Schumann's handM^riting, Prov. Carabaya, Puno, Peru, Raimondi." Both show a prominent and reticulate tertiary venation on the lower surface of the leaf-blade, but the fruiting fragment on photo of no. 64 does not show whether the branches of the inflorescence are densely puberulent or glabrous. The capsules on the specimen of photo no 64 appear to be solitary and pedicellate to 2 mm. The photo of no. 63 consists of a leafy shoot only, of which the leaf-blade beneath appears to be glabrous.
