Distribution
Sloanea fasciculata is known only from the municipality of Santa Teresa, Espírito Santo state and is endemic.
Ecology
Atlantic rainforest; alt. 650 m.
Conservation
Due to the small amount of collected material, this species must be classified as Data Deficient (DD) following the IUCN (2001) criteria.
Note
Sloanea fasciculata may be confused with S. hirsuta (Schott) Planch. ex Benth. due to the size and shape of leaves. However, the new species can be characterised by the mucronate leaf apex (apex acute to acuminate in S. hirsuta), fasciculate inflorescence (bracteate raceme inflorescence type in S. hirsuta) and deeply-divided stigma (shallowly 4 – 5-fid at the apex in S. hirsuta).

Smith (1954) referred to SloaneamonospermaVell. instead of S. hirsuta for the same taxon. Smith considered 1825 as the year of publication for S. monosperma. However, according to Stafleu & Cowan (1981), the description of S. monosperma was printed in 1825, but was not distributed until 1829. Therefore, S. monosperma was effectively published in 1829. Dasynemahirsutum Schott, which was cited by several authors under the synonymy of S. monosperma was published by Schott (1827). Bentham (1861) transferred D. hirsutum to Sloanea and, given the earlier date publication of the basionym, S. hirsuta is the correct name for this taxon.
