Species on this page ( A = names approved by most authorities, s = approved as synonyms) :
Scheelea macrocarpa H. Karst.
SYNONYM(S) : Attalea macrocarpa Barb. Rodr.
CHINESE : Da guo xi le zong (as S. macrocarpa), Da guo ya ta zong (as A. macrocarpa).
This species may be a synonym of Attalea eichleri (Drude) Andr. Hend. see this record for all names grouped together.
Scheelea phalerata (Mart. ex Spreng.) Burret -> Attalea phalerata Mart. ex Spreng.
Some authors place Scheelea excelsa H. Karst. as a synonym one species, others think of it as a synonym of another species.
A similar situation was found with Scheelea martiana Burret . These need further sorting in order to reveal where the error lies.
It is possible that the pair Scheelea macrocarpa / Attalea macrocarpa are only synonyms of Attalea eichleri (Drude) Andr. Hend.
Feedback on any of these point would be very welcome.
