Dalbergia chontalensis Standl. & L.O. Williams, Ceiba 1: 81. 1950; D. glabra var. chontalensis (Standl. & L.O. Williams) Rudd.

Small arboles, arbustos o bejucos. Folíolos 6--13, oblong, elípticos or obovados, 1.3--4.2 cm de largo y 0.6--2.3 cm de ancho, ápice redondeado, retuse or emarginate and apiculate, base redondeada a aguda, haz sericeous to glabrescent, envés seríceo, with minute appressed straight hairs; estípulas not seen. Inflorescences cymose-paniculate, small, axilares o algunas veces terminales, pedicelos 2--3 mm de largo, flores 8--9.5 mm de largo; cáliz 3.5--6 mm de largo, with sparse usually appressed hairs, el lobo carinal linear-atenuado, los laterales y el vexilar más amplios, obtusos o subagudos y un poco más cortos; pétalos blancos; estambres 10, monadelfos. Frutos oblongos, 3.2--7 cm de largo y 1.5--2 cm de ancho, glabros, estípite 5–10 mm de largo; semillas 1 or 2.

Común, bosques de galería, bosques secos, en todo el país; 100--650 m; fl abr--jun, fr ene, abr, jul-nov; Moreno 21540, Ortiz 152; Guatemala to Costa Rica. The separation of D. glabra and D. chontalensis remains uncertain. In the published Flora de Nicaragua, D. glabra var. chontalensis was recognized for Nicaragua and the typical variey treated as expected. Specimens cited as D. glabra sensu lato (Standley 9544, 10191, 10211, 10338, 10400, 10531) are now treated as D. agudeloi. Dalbergia agudeloi differs in being a real tree with leaflets and calyces with tangled hairs and ovaries villous on margin spreading onto flat surfaces.
