Description: Calocarpum, long maintained as a distinct taxon, is now generally considered as a synonym of Pouteria. The wood anatomy is quite different from Pouteria (sensu stricto) and the author is of the opinion that reduction to synonomy is not justified. The anatomical evidence supports the treatment of Calocarpum by the monographer Charles Baehni.
Keywords: Wood anatomy, Calocarpum, Pouteria, specific gravity, Lucuma, Sapotaceae, tropical woods
