Type. Forest at junction of Line WX-7 and Ridge Line, Matthews Ridge, Barima River, Northwest Territory, British Guiana, alt 90 m, 4 Feb 1955, R. S. Cowan 39378.

An examination of the holotype collection at NY and isotype collections at F and US indicates some slight changes in corolla measurements from those given in the original description. I find the following measurements: Corollae 21-23 mm longae, tubo 13.5-15.5 mm longo, lobis 7-8 mm longis 2-2.8 mm latis.
