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.
