Abstract:
Myrcia incompleta, from the northern Brazilian states of Amazonas and Rondônia, is described and illustrated. This species is apparently related to Calyptranthes paniculata and C. speciosa, from which it is distinguished mainly by its narrower leaves with midvein strongly raised adaxially and shorter, pauciflorous inflorescences. Conservation status for the species is proposed.
