Notes: This species is characterized by its medium-sized shortly petiolate leaves, its well developed tubular stipules that are lacerate and glandular along the top margin, its pedunculate cymose inflorescences, its pedicellate somewhat large flowers with well developed calyx limbs and stout corollas, and its medium-sized white fruits. There is some notable variation in flower size within this species. Rudgea obesiflora is generally similar to Rudgea loretensis and Rudgea skutchii, and vegetatively similar to Rudgea sororia. Rudgea obesiflora has been confused in herbarium identifications with Rudgea ceriantha by Taylor.
Distribution: Wet forest at 260-1600 m in the western Amazon basin, in Ecuador and northeastern Peru.
