Description: Laguncularia is a monotypic genus in a moderately large, tropical, woody family consisting of about 20 genera and 500 species (Tomlinson 1986). The only other mangroves or mangrove associates in the Combretaceae are two Old World species of the genus Lumnitzera and the New World species Conocarpus erectus. The native range of L. racemosa includes the coast of central and southern Florida, Bermuda and most of the West Indies, both coasts of continental tropical America from Mexico south to Brazil and northern Peru, and the coast of West Africa from Senegal to Angola (Chapman 1976, Graham 1964, Little and Wadsworth 1964).
