Abstract

Ocotea is the largest genus of Lauraceae in Mesoamerica (Central America and Southern Mexico, i.e., the area between the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Mexico and the Panamanian-Colombian border) with 102 species recognized. The most recent treatment of Mesoamerican Ocotea was published by Carolyn Allen in 1945. It included 33 species and is now seriously outdated. A synopsis of the genus as it is currently known from Mesoamerica is presented here, consisting of a key to species, synonymy, type information, some brief notes on characters useful in their identification, and distribution by country and altitude.
