Other large trees, some with commercial value, on the terra firme are the Brazil nut (Bertholletia excelsa), sucupira (Bowdichia virgilioides), and rubber (Hevea spruceana).
The country was teeming with plants of great medicinal value, such as the _sucupira_, which gave a bean much used in Goyaz to relieve stomach troubles; the _algudanzinho_, with its lovely cadmium-yellow cup-shaped flower -- a plant which was most plentiful in that region, and the root of which was said to be very beneficial for the worst of venereal complaints; and also the _acaraiba_.
There was not much in the way of vegetation, barring a few stunted _sucupira_ trees.
