This is the first record of this taxon from Guayana. The specimen was collected in flower and fruit in June at an altitude of 125 m. The range of this species is unusual. The type was collected in Bolivia and subsequent collections were made in British Guiana and the Amazonas state of Brazil with a recent new record from Panama.
The types of the two additional species, Dendrobangia multinervia and Dendrobangia tenuis, described by Ducke from Brazil, have not been located and no duplicates have been seen. The vegetative characteristics which were used to identify the new species do not seem substantial, but Ducke considered significant their location in a moist upland rain forest and in the ''catinga" vegetation.
Distribution:Venezuela South America
