Nomenclatural Notes



Eponymy: Is a pleasure to name this species after Dr. Scott A. Mori (1941– 2020), a wonderful person and skilled botanist; a dedicated explorer of Central and South America humid forests (where this species occurs), especially in the Guianas and the Amazon basin; and an authority on Neotropical Lecythidaceae. His taxonomic and ecological publications gave great inspiration to the first author, as did Dr. Mori’s personal support. For an account of Dr. Mori’s legacy, see Boom (2020), Forget (2020), and Prance et al. (2021). (english)doi:10.3897/phytokeys.170.64564
