Cusparia ulei Krause, Repert. Sp. Nov. 2:26. Jan 1906.
There are perhaps other species of Cusparia which should be removed to other genera, but this one is certainly anomalous in the genus. The flowers are less strongly arcuate than those of M. maroana, but in characteristics of the calyx and inflorescence the relationship is quite clear.
M. ulei is most nearly related to M. neblinensis and differs in having sessile or nearly sessile flowers, and sessile leaflets on a relatively short petiole.
