Monographs Details: Hirtella pohlii Hook.f.
Authority: Prance, Ghillean T. 1972. Chrysobalanaceae. Fl. Neotrop. Monogr. 9: 1-410. (Published by NYBG Press)
Scientific Name:Hirtella pohlii Hook.f.
Discussion:A Pohl collection at Munich annotated H. pohlii does not match Hooker’s description at all. I have not yet been able to find further material of this species, and there is none in the herbaria at Kew or Vienna.

The description of Hirtella pohlii is close to the species named H. burchellii here, and it is possible that the type of the name H. pulchra, a synonym of H. burchellii, is in fact H. pohlii. However, the localities are different between that specimen and Hooker’s description of H. pohlii.
