Scientific Name:Dicymbe amazonica Ducke

This is a very distinctive species in its possession of three petals; on the basis of this character it is considered to represent a distinct section. In most other respects it is quite closely related to the typical section, although it has a rather different facies. Only parts of the type collection, Ducke 35091, have been examined.
