Observations. – Although C. spathulata   is a later heterotypic synonym of Ravensara laevis   , it is the earliest available name in Cryptocarya   and should be used for this species. The types of both names came from the same locality and both were in flower. Because the sole difference between Cryptocarya   and Ravensara   is a fruit character, this example illustrates the difficulty of assigning flowering specimens to either Cryptocarya   or Ravensara   , when these genera were considered distinct.
