Monographs Details: Marlierea biptera Amshoff
Authority: Maguire, Bassett & Wurdack, John J. 1958. The botany of the Guayana Highland--Part III. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 10: 1-156.
Family:Myrtaceae
Discussion:For description see Amshoff, I.e., or Fl. Surin. 3: 68 (1951). Known only from the type, collected in eastern Surinam. The branchlets are winged as in sect. Myreiopsis, but the relatively abundant pubescence, the coarse and manyflowered panicles, the large buds (probably 5 mm long) and the dehiscent calyx indicate that M. biptera is not closely related to the species of this section.
