Abstract [en]

A new species from Ecuador, Symplocos limonensis, is here described and illustrated. It resembles S.clethrifolia but differs by having larger leaves with evident (i.e., not concealed) areoles on lower surface, sessile inflorescences, smaller white corollas, and fewer stamens. The species is only known from three collections in the Andean forests of Morona-Santiago Province in southern Ecuador.
