Eugenia leitonii?

Does not exist. You must mean Eugenia leonanii.
If there was a Garden of Eden, it was in Yunnan Province

Yes it exists. I collected Eugenia leitonii in Brazil from the Sartori family. Might no be correct latin name, or have been changed, but it definitely exists. Araca piranga is the common name.

"Não existe" says Marcos Sobral. Eugenia leitonii is a name that was written in a herbarium label and never published. The species in question is Eugenia pseudomalacantha.

The plant exists. Only the latin name is not an accepted name. Thanks for the correction of latin name.

Interesting, then, that Harri Lorenzi would put Eugenia leitonii in his book and not even mention Eugenia pseudomalacantha as a synonym. (See attached page from the recent english ebook edition)

Do you see next to the name the part in parantheses that says (nom inval)? That means name is invalid. Possible that there was not a vaild name at time book was published?
