Etymology and Distribution:— Ocotea morona-santiagoensis   is known from only the type collection, which has been collected on the eastern slope of the Andes at 1300 to 1600 m in the province of Morona-Santiago in Ecuador ( van der Werff 2020).

Litsea cuneata (Blume) Boerlage (1900: 141)   , nom. illeg., non Litsea cuneata Knowlton (1899: 726)  

Tetranthera cuneata Blume (1851: 375)   Glabraria cuneata (Blume) Miquel (1858: 943)   Malapoenna cuneata (Blume) Kuntze (1891: 572)

Note:—The extant species name Litsea cuneata (Blume) Boerl.   is not in current use and it has been synonymized with L. tomentosa Blume (1826: 566)   by Kostermans (1969: 509). There are at least five sheets collected by Forsten from Celebes. Specimen at L 0450042 is selected here as lectotype because it has an original label by Forsten, annotated with “In de boschen rond Tondano | Juni 1841 | Laurinae | Celebes”, and the name “ Tetranthera cuneata Bl   ” in Blume’s handwriting. This taxon is known from Thailand, Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, Sumatra, Java, Borneo, Sulawesi, New Guinea, and Philippines ( Ngernsaengsaruay et al. 2005, de Kok 2017, Brambach & Pelser 2020).
