Rengifa scandens (Aublet) Planchon & Triana, Ann. Sci. Nat. ser. 4. Bot. 14: 241. 1860.
Cayenne in 1775, Aublet s.n. (holotype BM, photo NY).
Additional specimens examined: French Guiana: Godebert, 23 Jun 1921, Wachenheim 292 (NY); Melinon in 1862, 389, 449 (P); Melinon s.n. (P).
Though a well-marked species, Q. scandens has been little collected, and its distribution is not well known. It is to be expected that it will be found in much of coastal Guiana.
