Monographs Details: Brunellia trigyna Cuatrec.
Authority: Cuatrecasas, José. 1985. Brunelliaceae (supplement). Fl. Neotrop. Monogr. 2: 28-103. (Published by NYBG Press)
Discussion:The type collection of B. trigyna is Cuatrecasas et al. 12338 (Cuatrecasas, 1970, p. 131, line 28). The citation of Cuatrecasas et al. 12668 on line 26 should be removed; it is correctly placed on lines 34-36 of the same page. The Boyacá specimens mentioned on that page have been transferred to the B. propinqua complex.

The leaf blades of B. trigyna are rigidly coriaceous, sub-bullate, the secondary nerves strongly depressed adaxially and raised abaxially, the venular reticulum prominent, alveoles open; hairs are short or very short abaxially, rather straight, acute, rigid, and copiously or sparsely distributed; they may be also longer, ascendent or subappressed on the main nerves.
