Description:Distribution and Ecology - Banks of Cuao River, November 25, 1948, Maguire & Politi 27449. This species was originally described from Trinidad but there are records of its occurrence in Guiana and one collection from the Cordilleran region of Venezuela is deposited in this herbarium.
Discussion:The present collection shows only one point of departure from the species description and that is in the number of leaflets. S. pinnata is characterized as having five pairs of leaflets and this collection has seven pairs; however in every other respect the affinity appears to be unmistakeable.
