  • Description

    Hojas verdes; flores tomates; frutos verde-plomos, tienen formo de canela; leche blanca adentro. Phenology of specimen: Fertile.

  • Collection Notes

    This collection is not Gustavia longifolia as previously determined by me (S. A. Mori, 1987). The label states that the fruits have a white latex which is not a character of Gustavia. The strip of bark glued onto the specimen has adventitious roots, a feature that I have not seen in Gustavia. However, the leaves and flower fragments in the packet represent a species of Gustavia.
