Discussion:The eight genera treated above are those indigenous to the neotropics. The monotypic West African genus Neocarya is grown at the Summit Botanical Garden in Panama and so it is mentioned briefly here. Neocarya is described in full in Prance and White (1988), and is a segregate from the closely related genus Parinari. It differs in the large gibbous receptacle, the greater number of stamens and the very different fruit structure.
