Notes: This species is characterized by its subsessile to shortly petiolate, robust, oblanceolate to ovate leaves with truncate to cordulate bases, terminal inflorescences with 3-6 subsessile to fasciculate flowers, well developed calyx limbs, well developed white corollas with acute lobes, and medium-sized subglobose to oblate fruits. This species is rather odd and distinctive within Faramea. Faramea permagnifolia is similar to Faramea correae, Faramea accumulans, and Faramea zamorana, all of southern Central America, which have broadened clasping leaf bases. Faramea permagnifolia is also similar to Faramea spathacea, with smaller leaves and solitary flowers borne on well developed peduncles.
Distribution: Wet forest at 35-200 m in southern Costa Rica and western Panama.
