Attalea maripa (maripa), Oenocarpus bacaba (koemboe), nanai-maka (Bactris vs. humilis), and taspalm (Geonoma vs. baculifera). – Herb layer: kleine paloeloe (Heliconia sp.), warimbo (Marantaceae spp.) and Renealmia gracilis O.

There was only one dominant tree species in this forest, namely Dicorynia guianensis, forming 12% of all trees with a diameter of 10 cm or over. This species, however, was very unevenly distributed being well represented in a few quadrats, but entirely absent in many others.
