Description Slender treelet ca. 4 m tall in forest near creek. Leaves dark green and glossy above, plane; fruits apple-red. If this is indeed coffee, as it appears, it must be an escapee rather than a remnant, as this site has certainly never been under cultivation.
Locality More or less intact, primary forest along Quebrada Micos, ca. 8.5 km (by road) west of Ciudad Colón
