Antiaris toxicaria subsp. macrophylla C.C.Berg
Berg, C.C. (1977) Bulletin du Jardin Botanique National de Belgique 47: 939.
The specific epithet was applied to this species because the latex has been used as an arrow or dart poison. The tree is not as dangerous as some of the early travellers tales would suggest but it should be treated with caution.
For some indication of the chemical components of the arrow poisons. (http://www.williams.edu/BSC/RS98html/RepSci98Web- FACULTY.html#Heading90 (17-8-2000)). This species is poisonous. (http://squid2.laughingsquid.net/hosts/herbweb.com /herbage/A1652.htm)
