Abstract [en]

Simira colorata from western Ecuador is described and illustrated. It is distinguished from other species of Simira by havingrather small, glabrous leaves, with blades acute or obtuse at base, small non-calycophyllous, 4-merous flowers in ratherlarge, pyramidal inflorescences, and small fruits. In vegetative features it resembles the Amazonian S. rubescens, which differsfrom S. colorata in its reproductive features. Although new to science, S. colorata, has been known and widely used inthe Ecuadorian coast since the 18th century, and is nowadays endangered due to habitat loss.
