V E N E Z U E L A . Bolivar: Chimanta Massif, summit of Apacara-tepui, elev 2450- 2500 m, 21-22 Jun 1953 (fl, fr), Steyermark 75903 (MICH, type); Central section, east branch headwaters Rio Tirica, elev 2185-2210 m, 13 Feb 1955 (fl), Steyermark & Wurdack 864 ( N Y ) ; Torono-tepui, E of N escarpment, elev 1895-1910 m, 20 Feb 1955 (fr), Steyermark & Wurdack 946 (MICH).

This form occurs on Chimanta in the same general area as Ugni myricoides f grossa, from which it is superficially very distinct. Steyermark and Wurdack noted the vegetative differences in the field.
