Protologue - the Holotype description

Commentary on the holotype:
Sleumer (1980: page 204) states that the name of this species is as spelt above. However the protologue document states the genus as "Perrotetia".

This name was later changed to Perrottetia costaricensis because it is a homonym with P. racemosa (Oliv.) Loes. in Celastraceae and is easily confused. Agostini (1973)
