Monographs Details: Eugenia albicans (O.Berg) Urb.
Authority: Maguire, Bassett. 1969. The botany of the Guayana Highland-part VIII. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 18: 1-290.

For description see Amshoff (Fl. Suriname 3(2): 134. 1951). This is easily recognized by the markedly bicolorous leaves which are smooth and lustrous above, very pale or glaucous beneath, by the long appressed bright coppery silky hairs that cover the inflorescence and the flowers, and by the long thin and broadly hooded calyx-lobes, 3-4 m m long and glabrous on the inner surface, that cover the corolla in bud and suggest those of Eugenia feijoi, but which unlike those of E. feijoi are distinct to the base.
