Family:Clusiaceae
Description:Distribution and Ecology - COLOMBIA: Valle: Puerto Merizalde, Costa del Pacifico, Rio Naya; bosques; alt. 5-10 m; Cuatrecasas 14025 (type, NY, US). San Isidro, Rio Cajambre; Cuairecasas 17289 (paratype, F, N Y , US).

Discussion:

The type collection represents immature flowering male material. The larger number of sepals (9-10) of the flower buds seems to represent a distinct departure from the prevailing number in the sect. Omphalanthera (usually 6). The fruiting specimens of the paratype indicate close relationship with C. brachystyla of Venezuela, and perhaps with the poorly known G. eugenioides of Colombia.
