rata. Although E. aerosa is known only from the upper Amazon, in Peru and lands, all glabrous or nearly glabrous plants with large smooth pinnately veined
leaves, large flowers (the larger calyx lobes 5-7 m m long) on long slender pedicels
up to 2 cm long or more. Similar but somewhat pubescent plants occur at some
localities on the Amazon, and may represent other species. I have not seen any
specimens of Eugenia agathopoda from the area of the Guayana Highland or from
the Guianas; it is included here for contrast with E. anastomosans and E. mimus,
both of which have similarly large and long-pedicellate flowers.
The type of Eugenia agathopoda, Ule 5825, came from Brazilian Amazonia, "ad
flum. Jurua Miry pr. Belem"; cf Field Mus. neg. 23510, a photograph of an isot}TDe.
Specimens from Para, Monte Alegre, Froes 30278, 30556A (both M I C H ) may be
