Description:Distribution and Ecology - DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. Anamuya, near Higuey, Alain Liogier 12251.Webster (Jour. Arnold Arb. 38: 197-198. 1957) noted that this species is found in the Lesser AntiUes, and no specimens were seen by him from the Greater Antilles except from Jamaica. Since his monograph has been published, I have collected the plant in Puerto Rico, where it seems to be quite common; this is the first record for Hispaniola.
