Description:Distribution and Ecology - Nine collections from Amazonas, Venezuela, are now available; from the Casiquiare (Piedra Tururumeri, Piedra Arauicaua), Cerro Sipapo, Cerro Duida, Serrania Yutaje. These were determined from the description and photo of the Spruce holotype collected "in montic. Tarurumari fluvi Pacimoni." The Casiquiare (Rios Paeimoni-Yatua) specimens have the leaves beneath softly villose with erect, relative long hairs, whereas the other collections have a close white tomentum of very short, appressed hairs. Specimens from Colombia, Vaupes, RioKuduyari (deposited at USNH), have leaves glabrous to softly villose beneath.
