Prumnopitys andina, the most suitable name for this plant species belonging to the Podocarpaceae family, should prevail over Podocarpus andina or Prumnopitys spicata (see MILL & Quinn 2001).
As we will discuss later, Prumnopitys andina tends to grow on the lower levels of the mountain slopes, that is, where it can most easily form extensive populations on considerably large sites.
We think that it is correct to say that Prumnopitys andina grows "mostly at the bottom of valleys near large rivers" (Hechenleitner & al., 2005).
