Poor taxonomic knowledge, lack of tools and high diversity limit our ability to recognize plant species in Amazon forest plot inventories. While the identification of species is a well-known problem, the delimitation of local species is considered unproblematic. We show that local species delimitation is also prone to large uncertainties, and that botanical experience may not reduce them.
