Notes.

Eugenia bunchosiifolia  is a tree 3-15m alt. from the coastal Atlantic Forest of Brazil, growing in rainforests from Paraná, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo states. This species has glabrous leaves with obscure glandular dots visible on both faces, leaf apices are acuminate, without cartilaginous margins, the hypanthium is velutinous. The lectotype of Eugenia bunchosiifolia  was chosen because the holotype was destroyed in the Second World War. The specimem found at K was a isotype and now considered the lectotype of this name.

The protologue and the examinated holotype of Eugenia brunoi  matches with those of Eugenia bunchosiifolia  , hence this species is here synonymized with Eugenia bunchosiifolia
