Description:Distribution and Ecology - VENEZUELA: Maguire & Wurdack 34810, Rio Casiquiare and tributaries, Amazonas, dominant plant of submerged margin of Lago Paciba, Rio Paciba, elev. 130 m, April 3, 1953, slender tree 2-6 m, trunk basally swollen. COLOMBIA: Maguire, Wurdack # Bunting 36263, Rio Atabapo, frequent in drowned river margin between San Fernando de Atabapo and Caeagual, 130 m elev., Nov 18, 1953, tree to 6 m, with tumid trunk, calyx reddish, corolla cream, " Palo" or "Volla."

Discussion:

The leaves of 36263 are very atypical. They are dull, thin, irregularly shaped to strongly falcate. This may be clue to disease. The flowers are identical with those of 34810. The sepals of the latter are slightly blunter than those of the isotype at The New York Botanical Garden. The corolla-limb is sparingly pilose toward the center.
