Description:Distribution and Ecology - VENEZUELA: Amazonas: forest edge at San Fernando de Atabapo, alt. 125 m; tree 30 m tall, 1 m DBH; fls purple; 6 Jun 1959, Wurdack & Adderley 42843. COLOMBIA: along left bank of Eio Orinoco just beloAV mouth of Eio Atabapo, alt. 125 m; tree 8 m; fruit green; 6 Aug 1959, Wurdack & Adderley 43775.
Discussion:These collections represent the first report of this species in Venezuela; in both, the leafiets and fruits are a little larger than typical, but in most respects this material is very near L. paniculatus. The inflorescence and infrutescence are unnaturally congested as a result of disease on the living plant.
