Discussion:

Clusia roraimana Steyerm. Fieldiana Bot. 28: 391. 1952.

Type: "Roraima" Schomburgk 717.

None of the type specimens of C. schotiiburgkii are well collected or preserved specimens. Primarily on the basis of foliar similarity, however, with some hesitation, C. roraimana Steyermark is brought under synonomy with C. schomburgkii. Likewise, similarity of vegetative character requires the assignment of the Kaieteur specimens cited above to that species.
