Tree for ID | Vismia guianensis (Hypericaceae)
« on: Sun, 01 July 2018, 05:24:31 PM »
I've found a longhorn beetle (Cerambycidae) which was gnawing away on the bark of a small tree for some unclear reason. The tree had bright orange sap filling up the wounds, and I'd like to know what kind of tree it was. The leaves were too high up to reach, so I only got distance shots from below and a photo of the bark with some wounds. Thanks in advance for helping! The tree was growing in xerophytic forest close to the Zanderij airport in the district of Para, Surinamee.

Cheers, Auke

Hi Auke,
This tree is Vismia guianensis, very common along roads...
