Notes

Small tree up to 12 m, in savanna and dry forest, penetrating into the semideciduous forest on rocky sites. Twigs conspicuously peppered with white lenticels. Leaves simple, alternate, with short chanelled petiole; petiole with a distinct abscission line (where it breaks off when deciduous). Stipules minute, triangular, not persistent. Blade obovate, 8 – 15 cm long, finely serrate along the whole margin, shiny and glabrous both above and below; base cuneate, apex acute. Laterals about 7 – 9 pairs but difficult to count because of the numerous secondary laterals between the main laterals; finer venation finely scalariform between the secondary laterals. Flowers white to yellowish on short side shoots of less than 2 cm. Fruits one or a few separate carpels on a swollen receptacle, round, dark purple – black, about 1 cm Ø; persistent calyx reddish.

Notes

An as yet not classified large tree, Octoknema sp. A in H&J, 312, was found in SW Ivory Coast and in the Grebo forest in SE Lberia. It has densely pubescent twigs with white stellate/dendritic hairs. Leaves simple, alternate, with entire margin. The petiole is also pubescent with stellate hairs, 1 – 3 cm long, the upper 1 cm swollen. Base of the blade – and this is quite a unique distinguishing characteristic – minutely peltate: the margin grabs around the top of the petiole. Blade ovate, 25 x 9 cm, with 8 – 10 pairs of laterals; midrib densely pubescent. Venation not scalariform(?).
