Common Name(s)

Not Known


Notes

An emergent tree of the rainforest, to 50 m tall and 200 cm Ø. The base of the tree has very heavy, spreading root swellings, narrow buttresses or butt flares. The base is often swollen, perhaps because elephants like to rub their skin against the rough bark. Bark very dark, deeply grooved. Slash fairly thick, fibrous but brittle, red but more pink close to the cambium, exuding a sticky white latex. Leaves simple, alternate, clustered, with numerous laterals, indistinct or slightly raised beneath. Fruit a large, smooth berry, yellow when ripe, 8 – 10 x 5 – 8 cm, containing 1 – 3 seeds in a yellowish pulp; seeds partly smooth, partly knobbly. The fruits are eaten by elephants who thus distribute the seeds. See also PROTA database. Syn.: Dumoria heckelii/Mimusops heckelii.

Notes

Can grow into a large tree of the rain forest, to 35 m tall and 80 cm Ø. Bark smooth, even in older trees, shedding small, thin bark scales; slash reddish or red-orange, rather thin, exuding a copious white latex. Leaves nearly in whorls, at least at the end of the twigs, with small stipules, 7 – 15 x 2.5 – 5 cm on flowering twigs but much larger on sterile shoots, to 35 cm long; nodes markedly swollen. Fruit rounded, 7 – 8 cm, the seeds 3 – 5 cm. Tree similar in habit to Neolemonniera batesii, which has bigger leaves and may not be a separate species but a form with bigger leaves, limited to the wettest parts of the rainforest. Syn.: Lemonniera clitandrifolia.
