Monographs Details: Stachyarrhena reticulata Steyerm.
Authority: Maguire, Bassett. 1965. The Botany of the Guayana Highland. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 12 (3): 1-285.
Discussion:This species is related to S. penduliflora K. Schum., from which it differs in the rounded tips of the leaves, the strongly reticulated leaf-blades, and the characteristic abrupt termination of the midrib before reaching the tip of the blade. The special characters of the leaves of this species enabled the placing of the fruiting collections together with the staminate specimens as representing the same taxon.
The vernacular name of the fruiting specimens is given as "pendare" and "earuto." The Williams collections, cited below, had all been questionably determined previously by Standley as Duroia fusifera.
