Abstract:

The genus Diploon is represented here by D. cuspidatum Hoehne Cronquist which is native to southeastern Brazil. Originally described as Chrysophyllum cuspidatum by Hoehne in 1933, it was raised to generic status by Cronquist in 1946. The anatomy of the secondary xylem substantiates this transfer. A second species, D. venezuelana Aubreville from Venezuela, was not available for this study. This paper on Diploon is the eighth in a series describing the anatomy of the secondary xylem of the neotropical Sapotaceae.
