The type ("v. in hb. Kunth et Spreng.") was collected in "Cayenne" by Martin.
Presumably the specimens cited by Berg have been destroyed; I have not located
any duplicates. The species was assigned by Berg to his "Racemulosae"; it was described
as having "rufo-sericeis'' pubescence, coriaceous acuminate leaves with midvein
sulcate above, short but evident few-flowered racemes from leafless nodes, fruiting
pedicels probably 4 m m long ["2"'"], and shorter than the rachiha, calyx-lobes
rotund, connivent, rufo-sericeous, persistent on the obversely oblong fruit. I cannot
identify this with any other known species unless it be Eugenia brownsbergii Amsh.
