.Aulomyrcia salticola Steyerm., Fieldiana Bot. 28: 1007. 1957.

For description see Steyermark. Known only from the type, which is in fruit, this plant bears a specious resemblance to some forms of Myrcia tomentosa, but the leaves are only sparingly strigose, strongly bicolorous and only inconspicuously veined, the 6-10 strongest laterals running into a marginal vein that is somewhat arched between them, about as strong as the laterals and 1-2 m m from the margin; the midvein is convex above (concave or nearly flat in M . tomentosa), and the calyxlobes even in fruit are pubescent within
