    Description

    Chromolucuma was established by Adolpho Ducke in 1925 based on the single species rubriflora native to the middle Amazon of Brazil. A second species, baehniana, was described in 1949 by Monachino. It occurs in the Amazon and Guyana. A third species, sericea, was named by Gilly but it is not known at the present time whether this was validly published. Anatomically the affinities of Chromolucuma appear to be with Pouteria (sensu Aubréville) but it differs from the latter in several respects.
