Family:Myrtaceae
Discussion:

Previously known only from along the Marowijne [ISIaroni] River, in Suriname and French Guiana. A recent collection from northeastern Venezuela may represent the same species. The short lateral inflorescences at leafless nodes, the closed buds, keeled branchlets, numerous widely divergent lateral foliar veins and impressed midveins are all characteristics of M . multiglomerata, but leaves in the specimen cited below are definitely petiolate and merely rounded to the base, whereas in the type they are subsessile and subcordate. The hypanthium in Steyermark's specimen is closely pubescent at base with appressed whitish hairs, whereas Amshoff described the buds of M . multiglomerata as "subglabrous"; in 1958 I described the buds as "appressed-pubescent" but I have not been able to compare the type with this more recently collected specimen: V E N E Z U E L A . Sucre: Peninsula de Paria, Cerro Patao, elev 500-875 m, 25-26 Jul 1962 (fl), Steyermark & Agostini 91329 (MICH).
