Discussion:

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:
