specimen with acuminate oblong-elliptic leaves 10-14 cm long, the midvein
narrowly impressed above, the lower surface persistently pale-pubescent with fine
appressed hairs. The inflorescence is densely pubescent with fine ghstening pale reddish
appressed hairs, these most abundant on the pedicel and hypanthium, the broad
persistent bracteoles and calyx-lobes only sparingly pubescent on the outer surface.
The flowers are smah (disk 2-2.5 m m wide, larger calyx-lobes 2 m m long) and few,
in fascicles at leafy or leafless nodes, with definite but short pedicels 1-3 m m long.
Very probably this represents an undescribed species; it is superficially similar to
Eugenia exaltata, E. tafelbergica and E. arawakorum, all of which are poorly known.
W h e n the taxonomy of these and related species has been better worked out, the status
of the following specimen can perhaps be satisfactorily determined:
