Scientific Name:Myrteola

This is a small and easily recognized Andean group of perhaps 10 species, ranging from southern Chile to the high mountains of northern Venezuela. It is included here and in the key because of the possibility that some species m a y yet be found in the Guayana Highland. For descriptions, and a key to the species of northern South America, see Field Mus. Publ. Bot. 13(4) [Fl. Peru]: 803-809. 1958.
