Notes: This species belongs to Hillia subg. Hillia, and is apparently pollinated by hawkmoths. This is the most widely distributed and the most commonly collected species in the genus. It is variable morphologically in particular in the Andes, and as circumscribed here may include more than one species. However no morphological characters are evident that clearly separate subgroups within the plants now included in this species.
Distribution: Wet lowland, premontane, and montane forests at 10-2500 m, in the Greater Antilles, Lesser Antilles, and Colombia to Bolivia and southeastern Brazil, often frequent in secondary vegetation.
