Description: Achrouteria pomifera Eyma, the sole representative of the genus for almost 40 years, is distinguished from the world Sapotaceae by the very large silica particles which occur in the wood rays. Anatomically, two groups (species) may be distinguished on the basis of vessel member length and parenchyma seriation. A second species, A. durifructa described in 1974, differs significantly in several respects and may have been doubtfully placed in this genus.
