Siparuna thecaphora (Poepp. & Endl.) A. DC., an understory treelet in the Siparunaceae.
Note the subopposite leaves (i.e., leaves borne at a single node may appear to be either opposite or alternate, often varying within one branch) and tiny, cup-shaped flowers. A tree of the sub-soil. Note the subopposed leaves (leaves that appear opposite one knot and alternate in another), and small conical flowers.
Description: > A family of understory trees with simple, opposite to subopposite leaves, often with toothed margins and often conspicuously hairy. The hairs are usually stellate. The stems are thick and somewhat succulent, lacking stipules. Siparunaceae are cauliflorous (with flowers and fruit borne directly from the trunk). The most distinctive aspect of the Siparunaceae is their odor, a truly foul and unmistakable citrusy blast.
Siparunaceae consists of the single genus Siparuna . It is often included in Monimiaceae (eg, Gomez et al. 2004), but most treatments (Stevens 2005) segregate it at the family level due to various characters that the rest of Monimiaceae lack (eg, strong odor, stellate trichomes, and a number of floral characters).
Economic uses: In Central America, some Siparuna species are used medicinally. Among the Achuar people of Ecuador, yellow-fruited Siparuna species is called shiramkat . The same word means "fat monkey," since the fruit is a favorite of the animals. Monkeys killed during the fruiting season of shiramkat are supposed to be particularly good eating (Yawá, pers. Comm.) .

Chile, Chili, or Chilli? What's the Correct Spelling?
Note that while this is also the spelling of the South American country , that has an entirely unrelated origin and meaning. This is the spelling that feels the most "right" to me; even though it is a loanword that is not pronounced like it reads.
