Genipap (Genipa Americana L.) is a soft brown berry fruit widely distributed in tropical Central and South America (Porto et al., 2014).
For instance, the presence of crystal sand in leaf mesophyll helps to identify Rondeletia species (Kocsis et al., 2004); druses may be used to identify Genipa americana (Erbano & Duarte, 2010) and raphides in leaf mesophyll and cortical parenchyma of petiole were observed in Palicourea longepedunculata (Pereira et al., 2003).
The most common species were Inga vera (66 trees), Ocotea diospyrifolia (62), Vitex cymosa (43), Tabebuia heptaphylla (36), Cecropia pachystachya, and Genipa americana (both 24 trees).
