Geographic Distribution: Curacao, Dutch West Indies.

Type Locality: Top of the shore cliffs near Plaja Djerimi, Curacao [12° 21.24' N, 69° 9.83' W]

Station C17b.  Top of shore cliffs.  This lot comes from the top of the high shore cliffs (about 10 meters) between Plaja Djerimi and Knip Baai.  It is a considerably more barren substation (fig. vi-14) than the nearby seroe.

Station C17c.  Sides of Plaja Abau.  Plaja Abau ends in a beach of dazzling white, coral sand. On either side, the overhanging shore cliffs (8.2 meters) extend for a short distance inland; the calcareous zone at their summits is very narrow.  The valley mouth itself is choked with mangroves and brush.
