Notes: CMT: Euclinia is a genus of several species of shrubs and small trees with interpetiolar stipules; usually deciduous leaves that are generally clustered at the ends of the stems; terminal, solitary, bisexual, generally large, showy, nocturnal flowers; 5 calyx lobes, corolla lobes, and stamens; narrowly funnelform, white corollas with the lobes left-contorted in bud; and baccate, subglobose, lenticellate, rather large fruit with thick fleshy walls and numerous smooth, somewhat flattened seeds. Specimens of Euclinia usually dry with a distinctive blackened color. Euclinia is similar to Hyperacanthus and Gardenia. The name Euclinia suavissima has been applied to all the specimens of this genus, but there are certainly several undescribed species of Euclinia that have been confused with this species (A.P. Davis, presentation at AETFAT meeting, V 2010).
