Common Name(s)

Not Known


Notes

Clearly a Dicranolepis species: shrub or small tree, in a wide range of vegetation types. The leaves are broader then the other two D. species, with more pairs of laterals; the underside is light bluish green. The venation details suggest that there are secondary laterals between the primary laterals, and that there is a fine, ± transverse, scalariform venation, different from D. laciniata.

Notes

Common shrubs whose leaf arrangement (distichous) and rhombic form resemble some Drypetes species, like D. aubrevillei or D. klainei. Without flowers difficult to establish the difference with D. disticha. D. laciniata has twigs and petioles densely appressed with white silky hairs.

Common Name(s)

Not Known


Notes

Common shrubs or small trees whose leaf arrangement (distichous) and rhombic form resemble some Drypetes species, like D. aubrevillei or D. klainei. Leaves simple, alternate; petiole very short, margin entire; long acuminate/caudate tip; blade asymmetric, rhombic, with ± 7 – 11 parallel laterals. The rhombic shape of the blade together with the long, drawn out apex are characteristic for Dicranolepis species. For certain identification flowers are needed. D. laciniata and D. disticha have fairly narrow leaves, D. persei has wider leaves. D. laciniata may occur in drier vegetation types, D. disticha more in the rain forest.
