Interesting Flora (Part IV and final) - Venezuela

Hi there,

I thought the last post should be dedicated to some shrubs and trees. Of particular interest is the Melastomataceae family, either due to the peculiarity of the flowers or due to their symbiosis with ants. They provide ants with natural nests and the ants protect the plants... Here are two examples, one found in Canaima and the other in the Amazonas region.
A few non-melastomataceae species too, and identification would be helpful!

Thanks again and enjoy!

Melastomataceae: Tococa macrosperma (Canaima): the "tumor" at the base of the leaf is used as an ants' nest


Melastomataceae: Tococa macrophysca (Amazonas): same as above applies


Melastomataceae: Monochaetum meridense (Merida region): flowers are very peculiar


Melastomataceae - Canaima


Melastomataceae (?) - Caniama


Acacia (?) - Canaima


Albizia (?) - Canaima


Plant - Canaima


not sure, may be aloes (Amazonas)


Eichhornia crassipes (Wetlands) - famous secies all over the world
