Eugenia horizontalis Pancher ex Brongn. & Gris 

in Bull. Soc.

Bot. France 12: 179. 1865.

Lectotypus (here designated): New CaledoNia. Prov. Sud: Port-de-France, 1855 - 1860, Vieillard 512 ( PAbout P [ PAbout P 00637576]!; isolecto-: PAbout P [ PAbout P 00543870]!). Syntypus: New CaledoNia: sine loc., 1862, Pancher s.n. ( PAbout P [ PAbout P 06670059, PAbout P 00696289, PAbout P 00696290]!); Balade, 1855 - 1860, Vieillard 513 ( PAbout P [ PAbout P 00637577]!).

= Myrtus aemulans Schltr. in Bot. Jahrb. Syst.  40 (Beibl. 92): 29. 1908. Lectotypus (here designated): New CaledoNia. Prov. Sud: Dumbea, Le Rat 46 ( PAbout P [ PAbout P 00543869]!).

Notes. ‒ The three syntypes mentioned in the protologue for Eugenia horizontalis  are represented by six sheets at PAbout P. Although the selected lectotype, Vieillard 512, has limited flowering material, it is representative of the species.

The holotype of Myrtus aemulans  has been destroyed at BAbout B and the isotype at PAbout P is here designated as the lectotype.

As currently recognized, Eugenia horizontalis  has glabrous, more or less pendulous flowers arising from elongated, slender pedicels. The species is restricted to the leeward side of New Caledonia in the southcentral part of the island in sclerophyllous forest or maquis. It is one of several species with significantly reduced flowers and leaves.
