Discussion:

For description see Field Mus. Publ. Bot. 13(4) [Fl. Peru]: 792. 1958. The type, which I saw at Munich in 1954, was from near Ega on the upper Amazon. The species ranges from Amazonian Peru and Colombia to the upper Orinoco lowlands in Venezuela. Vegetatively, P. densicomum is very like P. ovatifolium and P. persoonii, but even sterhe specimens can usuahy be identified by means of the characters used in the key above.
