Hymeno styliella is among those Pottiaceous genera having 
broadly lanceolate leaves with incurved margins and circinnate 
points ■v^en dry, similar vegetatively to Tinnniella and Hyophila . 
The leaf cells bulging adaxially in a single layer and with 
greatly thickened corners prompted Bart ram (1939) to establish a 
new genus even without fruiting material . 

Until the present, the genus has been known only from Luzon 
Island in the Philippines, but a series of specimens has recently 
been obtained from around a sulfur spring in the Kumaon District 
of northern Uttar Pradesh, India, This material bears sporo- 
phytes lAich are lateral from small axillary perichaetia. 
Slight peculiarities of the upper surface of the costa recall a 
brazilian species, Timm-iella alata Herz., and I also place that 
species in Hymeno styliella . The following descriptions and key 
are intended to help in further understanding the genus. 

Hymeno styliella Bartram, Philippine Joum. Sci. 68: 108. 1939- 

Stems densely foliate, erect, with central strand. Leaves 
oblong lanceolate, strongly incurved when dry with inrolled 
margins, widely spreading when moist; costa per current or 
excurrent in short mucro, in section with two stereid bands, 
adaxial surface with row ridges or distinct wings; upper leaf 
cells isodiametric, unistratose, flat abaxially, highly convex 
adaxially; basal cells oblong, more lax. Perichaetia in lateral 
buds. Setae elongate, smooth; urn erect, smooth; peristome 
lacking; opercvilum very long rostrate, longer than urn; calyptra 
not seen. 

Key to the species of Hymeno styliella 

1 . Adaxial surface of costa with only low serrulate ridges 

H. llanosii 
1. Adaxial surface of costa with 2 large wings H. alata 

The following synony^^y■ and descriptions have been compiled 
from the literature and from the collections of H. llanosii 
from India.

The new collections represent a 3000 mile extension of the 

1971 Robinson, Revision of Hymenos tyliella 3 

known range of the species. The species may be more common than 
the collections indicate, but it must fruit rarely. 

The fact that Brotherus validated Miiller's epithet seems to 
have been overlooked by later authors. The simple descriptive 
statement in german by Brotherus (1902) was sufficient for 
Vcilidation at that time. 

Hjmeno stjliella alat a (Herz.) H.Robinson, comb. nov. 

T-iimti-iella alata Herz., Arch. Bot. Est. S. Pa\ilo 1(2): 61. 

Stems to 1.5 cm high, sparsely branched, rigid, densely 
foliate. Leaves narrowly oblong-lanceolate, acute, 2.5 mm long, 
0.3 mm wide, canalicvilate-concave, cucullate, sometimes mucro- 
nate, all but basal margins broadly involute; base scarcely 
broader than blade, short elliptical; nerve percurrent, bearing 
2 prominent wings adaxially; wings ca. 12 cells high, i cell 
thick; cells of upper lamina small, mamillose adaxially; basal 
cells rectangular, yellowish, subpellucid. Dioicous? Sporophyte 

Brazil, without definite locality, IXitzelburg s.n . 

Material has not been seen, but the combination of leaf 
characters and especially the adaxial surface of the costa 
indicates close relationship to Hymenostyliella llano sii (Broth.) 
H.Robinson. Chen (1941) mentioned Herzog's species in his 
discussion of Hymeno styliella but apparently did not notice the 
slight ridging on the costa of H. llanosii . Additional material 
of H. alata should be sought and examined to confirm the 
postion of the perichaetia.

The rain forests of Central Costa Rica have been noted for 
many distinctive and apparently endemic species. To these may 
now be added the following previously vtndescribed species of 
Cyclodictyon . 

^^^lodixtj^n Ja^esii H.Robinson, sp. nov. (Fig. 1-3) 

Planta dioica?, robustiuscula, pallide virens, fragilis, in 
cortice putrido repens. Caules prostrati elongati, irregulariter 
dense ramosi. Folia laxe imbricata, ad 2.0 mm longa, 0.8 mm 
lata, oblonga vel late ovata, Integra, in partibus superioribus 
constrictr., apice distincte anguste apiculata; nervis binis 
divergentibus, prope constrictionem evanescentibus; cellulis 
nervorum uniseriatis; cellulis laminarum magnis laevibus, prope 
basin oblongis, 30 p, latis, ad 80 p, longis, superioribus 
rotundatis, ad 40 p, diam., in superficiebus abaxialibus saepe 
valde convexis, marginalibus in seriebus unicis elongatis. 
Cetera ignota.

W. James 1969-44 (US, holotype; HERB. REED, isotype) . 

The species shows an unusually laxly leaved appearance for 
the genus, but the best distinguishing feature is the flat rather 
expanded apical part of the leaves. The leaf apices are rather 
fragile and undoubtedly serve as propagules. The single row of 
narrower marginal cells is most evident near the apex. The 
protiniding cells on the back of the leaf are not always very 
noticeable .

Several collections of bryophytes from Monteverde, Costa Rica 
(Puntarenas Prov,), have been collected by Mr, Walter James, his wife, 
Mary and their son, Jerry over the past eight years. In addition, 
they have collected a large number of ferns and fern-allies from the 


Herbarium. These will appear in another paper. Monteverde is a set- 
tlement ON THE western slope of Costa Rica, and northwest of San Jose, 
Most of the specimens were collected from elevations ranging from 2500 
to 4500 FT, The habitats vary from deep forests, along streams and 
rivers to epiphytic and lithophytic situations along roads, in fields 
and in jungles, 


INCLUDED, They include a small collection of bryophytes from Clarence 
K, Horich, who also has collected many ferns and fern-allies for the 
Reed Herbarium; a small collection from Luis D, Gomez P, of San Jose; 
AND several collections BY Paul H, Allen, Paul Standley and J, Valerio, 
These collections are from various other areas of Costa Rica, 

The bryophytes reported here are represented by 112 species of 
mosses and 77 SPECIES of liverworts. Several new species have been

Gsrptis of Cassini is the oldest name for a group of plants 
which have often mistakenly been placed in the genus Conoclinium . 
These plants >*iich occur in Brazil and adjacent areas have flat 
receptacles, 4-26 flowers per head, thick densely setose achenes, 
very prominent papillae on the inside and outside surface of the 
corolla lobes and many hairs on the outside surface of the 
corolla lobes . The plaints with their rather long scapose inflor- 
escences, compact clusters of heads and often bluish or lavender 
flowers do resemble Conoclinitm (King & Robinson, 1970) and the 
related Brazilian genus, Barrosoa (King & Robinson, 1971a) . 
These three genera along with Lourteigia (1971b) of the northern 
Andes, share papillose outer surfaces of the corolla and highly 
ornamented walls of the anther collar cells. There is every 
reason to place them together in a group which we would refer to 
as Gyptoid. Only striking differences in pappus structure and 
slight differences in carpopodium structure separate the related 
group which we refer to as Ageratoid. 

One feature of the achene of Gyptis may be more the result 
of its shape than of relationship. The achenes are very broad 
and the minute pimctations on the lateral surfaces are usually 
arranged in prominent transverse rows. Similar rows of pimcta- 
tions have been observed in other groups such as Disynaphia 
which are not considered closely related. 

In G. art emisif olia , we have seen a few papillae on the 
base of the style which might suggest some relationship to the 
Eupatorioids . Distinctions between the groups are clear, 
however. One species often associated with Gyptis , Eupatorium 
oblong if oli\im Sch.-Bip. ex Baker is definitely a Stomatanthes 
(Robinson, 1970) in the Eupatorioid series having non-papillose 
corolla lobes and occasional stomates. 

Gyptis (Cassini) Cassini, Diet. Sci. Nat. 16: 10. 1820. 

Perennial herbs usually with tuberous tap roots. Stems 
erect, sparingly branched. Leaves opposite often becoming 
alternate above, ovate to bipinnatifid, serrulate to deeply 
cleft. Inflorescence usually densely corymbose or cymose. 
Involucre of 16-25 lanceolate to linear truncate scales in 2-3 
series; receptacle flat, glabrous. Head with 4-26 flowers, 
corollas narrowly funnelform, strongly papillose on both sur- 
faces of lobes, hairs and often glands on outer surface of lobes, 


1971 King & Robinson, The genus Gyptis 23 

cells of tube narrow sinuous walls; anther collar with 
mostly quadrate or short rectangular cells below, walls with 
transverse or oblique thickened bands. Anther appendages 
elongate with rather large cells; style base not enlarged, style 
appendages with distinct usually pointed papillae, appendages 
sometimes slightly enlarged; achenes prismatic, 5-costate, costae 
and lateral surfaces densely setiferous, minute punctations in 
rather regular transverse bands. Carpopodia very short, of very 
quadrate rather thin-walled cells. Pappus of many setae, apical 
cells of setae usually subacute or pointed.

Among the species that can be roughly sorted into the Gyptoid 
group in Brazil, there are two very distinctive groups. One, hav- 
ing very broad achenes with many setae and indistinct carpopodia 
and highly papillose style branches, is true Gyptis . The other 
group, having more slender achenes with few or no setae, very 
distinct carpopodia of large cells and rather smooth style 
branches, is here named as the new genus Barrosoa . The con^alex 
has been related to Conoclinixxm of North America. Barrosoa does 
have conical receptacles such as are fo\ind in Conoclinium , but 
Gyptis has only flat receptacles. 

Barrosoa differs from Conoclinium by the acute tips on its 
pappus setae, the very prominent carpopodia with large cells, 
the hairs on the outside of the corolla lobes and the nearly 
smooth style branches. 

The genus is also related to Lourteigia of the northern 
Andes and one species B. morichalana (Aristeguieta) R.M.King & 
H.Robinson occurs in both Venezexila and Colombia. This is, how- 
ever, a plant of low elevations, occuring in llanos in the 
Orinoco region. Lourteigia is a genus of strictly higher elev- 
ations. Lourteigia also differs in the smaller cells of its 
carpopodiiaa, the less differentiated cells on the inner surface 
of its corolla lobes and its always flat receptacles. 

We take great pleasure in naming this new genus in honor of 
Dr. Graziela Maciel Barroso, the leading authority on Brazilian 
Compo sitae.

Six species from the northern Andes are here recognized as 
a new genus related to Gyptis (King & Robinson, 1971a) , Cono- 
clinium (King & Robinson, 1970b), Barrosoa (King & Robinson, 
197lb), and some microscopic resemblance to Fleischmannia 
(King & Robinson, 1970a) . Some of the species have been referred 
to the section Conoclinium but they lack the conical receptacle 
of that group. The most distinctive features of the genus 
Loiirteigia are the rather consistent presence of 20 flowers per 
head, the distinct carpopodium of small firm-walled cells and 
the extreme constriction of the achene vinder the pappus. In this 
latter feature, the achene is narrowed to a third or less of its 
normal width and the pappus which is easily broken off, has a 
flat or even concave xmdersurf ace . 

Some resemblance has been noted between Lourteigia and 
Fleischmannia . Actual close relationship is doubted. The cells 
on the inner surface of the corolla lobes of Lourteigia do not 
have the projecting upper ends that are so distinctive in 
Fleischmannia . In fact, the corolla lobes can hardly be called 
papillose on the inside though they have recessed walls between 
the cells. The cells on the insides of the corolla lobes are 
not markedly distinct from those of the corolla tube as they are 
in the genus Barrosoa . The cells at the base of the anther 
collars in Lourteigia are obviously short and some have oblique- 
ly or vertically oriented thickenings. The anther collars of 
Fleischmannia have only transverse thickenings and any short 
cells are not obvious.

Recent collectors describe this plant as a low woody herb, for- 
ming spreading mats, the roots large, and the calyx green, tipped 
purple . Barclay L Juajibioy 8216 is said to have had the corollas 
"lavender to almost white, deeper color in throat of tube, with 
hairs". The plant has been found growing in dry desery climates, 
in sandy soil, on rocky hillsides and dry slopes, in open deserts 
and open grassy paramos, along disturbed roadsides, and among 
sparse grasses and low plants in dry open flat apeas with sotae sand 
dunes, at altitudes of 1200 — 3700 meters, flowering and fruiting 
in March, April, July, September, and November. 

Material has been misidentified and distributed in herbaria as 
Verbena microphylla H.B.K.

Sayers describes this plant as an er«ct shrub, found in regrowth 
at the sites of old village gardens in New Guinea, producing 
deep-mauve fruit. The corollas are described as "lavender" on H. 
H. Bartlett 13211 and as "pale-mauve" on Sayers N.G.F .211^99 . The 
E. D. Merrill " 7115 ". cited in Phytologia 15: 20 (I967), is an 
error in transcription for E^ D, Merrill 8117 . The Meams 8c 
Hutchinson s.n, [May I906], distributed as C. caudata, is actual- 
ly C, merrillii Moldenke. 

Callicarpa merrillii may be distinguished readily from C. 
caudata by the simple hairs on the lower leaf-surfaces, but the 
two taxa are obviously closely related.

Chang (1951) cites the K. Koch reference in the literature of 
this species as "2: 336" and he regards C. taquetii L6vl. as a 
synonym of C_. dichotoma , whereas I classify it as £. japonic a var. 
taquetii (L^veilll) Nakai. 

Sj^ces describes the corollas of C_. dichotoma as "mauve" and 
the fruit as ^'purple, globose, shining", questioning whether his 
no. 202/66 is the "?same plant as no. 156^3". Santamour (I967) 
gives its chromosome number as n = 18. 

Tatnall (I9I4.7) notes that the species was "escaped and well 
established in a swampy thicket along Les's River, Wilmington. 
Locality long since destroyed". Radford, Ahles, & Bell (I96U) 
aver that it is "rare in bogs" in Henderson County, North Caroli- 
na, flowering there from July to frost and fruiting from Septem- 
ber to frost. Additional vernacular names for the plant are 
"ko-shikibu" and "purple pearl", the former recorded from Japan, 
the latter from Hongkong. Ohwi (1965) gives its distribution as 
"Honshiu, Shikoku, Hyushu, Korea, Ryukyus, Formosa". 

Thomberry (19o6) implies that the follovdng fungi are known 
to (or may) attack this species: Atractilina callicarpae Dearn. 
& Barth . , Botryosphaeria callicarpae Cke . , Cercospora callicarpae 
Cke., Coniothyrivm callicarpae Cke., Meliola cookeana Soeg., Nec- 
tria cinnabarlna Tode, and Physalospora obtusa (Schw.) Cke., al- 
though it seems most probable to me that most, if not all, of 

1971 Moldenke, Monograph of Gallic arpa 35 

these records apply to the native C_. americana L. 

Ohwi (1965) records the name "murasaki-shikibu zoku" for the 
genus Callicarpa as a whole and keys out the Japanese species 
known to him as follows: [nomenclature brought up to date] 
1. Plants glabrous or thinly pubescent; calyx glabrous, with very 
short teeth. 

2. Leaf -blades caudate, glsindular-dotted on both surfaces

Chang (1951) elevates Pel's variety to specific rank, assigns 
to it a new epithet, C_. peii , and designates a new type, L_. Teng 
118 , from Canton, Kwangtung, China, deposited in the herbarium of 
the BotanicsQ. Institute, Sunyatsen University, Canton. However, 
it seems to me that under the present edition of the Internati-

A very interesting letter from my friend and colleague. Dr. 
E. H. Walker, dated July 26, I968, contains a paragraph which is 
well worth quoting in full here: "In I966 you verified Field & 
Lowe 6m as Callicarpa glabra Koidz . and in 1952 Walker £t Tawada 
6507 as the same. Both are cited in Phytol. lU: 236. 1967 . In 
general they match your description. Field & Lowe 6m has flowers,. 
You describe the corollas as 'resinous punctate on the outside* 
the anthers 'resinous punctate on both sides'. I do not find 
such glands on the corolla, only on the anthers. In this speci- 
men the calyx has a single row of relatively large distinctive 
peltate scales just below the rim. The other specimen, 6507 , is 
in fruit. The calyx lacks the distinctive scales, the fmits 
are glandular, the leaves distinctly narrower, and the branchlets 
gi^y, probably simply having matured beyond the early 'dark 
purplish or black' condition described. Perhkps these discrepein- 
cies are not significant. I have adjusted my description, 
based in part on yours (since you have seen more specimens than 
I have), to the variations in these two specimens, except for 
the peltate scales, which are ignored."

It is worth mentioning here that Masamune (1955) regards the 
"C^ japonica Thunb." of Maximowicz (1886), Matsumura (1899 & 1912, 
insofar as Ryukyu specimens are concerned), Kuroiwa [1900, "p.p. 
(sic mollis )"], Kawagoe (1915), Simada (1917), Wilson (1920), 
Sakaguchi (I92U), and Kakino & Nemoto (1936, insofar as Ryukyu 
specimens are concerned) as applying to C. japonica var. luxurians 
Rehd. That of Tasiro (l89li) he thinks may actually refer to C. 
mollis Sieb. L Zucc. Sykes refers to his two collections cited 
below as havinc had "mauve" corollas, the fruit "becoming mauve", 
and fruiting in March. Recent collectors describe the plant as a 
deciduous shrub, to 1.5 m. tall. They have found it growing in 

U2 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 1 

littoral scrub on Ishigaki Island, while on Miyako Island it is 
said to be "occasional in Pandanus scinib on limestone", forming a 
low bush 0.6 m. tall. The corollas on F. R. Fosberg 383I2 are 
said to have been "lilac". Hyland (1969! describes the fruit as 
"purplish". Lawrence (I967) points out that the "deep purple" 
fruits, which he erroneously refers to as "berries", begin to 
color in August and drop off by October in the southern United 
States . Santamour recoiris the chromosome count as n = 18 . An 
additional vernacular variant recorded for the species ia the 
Japanese "ohmurasaQci-shikibu" . Hirata (I966) records the powdery 
mildew fungus, Microsphaera alni , as attacking this plant. Ohwi 
(1965) describes the plaint as common and variable on the islands 
of Hokkaido, Honshu, Kyushu, and Shikoku. He includes C_. japoni- 
ca f , angustifolia Miq. in its synonymy, but I regard Miquel's 
name as a synonym of C . japonica var . angustata Rehd . 

Ohwi (1965) keys out the Japanese forms of the genus as recog- 
nized by him as follows [with the ncoienclature brought up to 
date] : 

1. Plants glabrous or thinly pubescent^ calyx glabrous, with 
very short teeth. 

2. Leaf -blades caudate, glandular-dotted on both surfaces 

C. japonica var. Itucurians 
2a. Leaf -blades acuminate to acute at the apex, glandular- 
dotted on the underside only. 

3. Cymes supra-axillary j anthers broadly ellipsoidal 

C. dichotoma 
3a. Cymes axillary. 

U. Corolla 1 mm. long, not glandular-dotted; branches 

slightly U-angled; leaves with 12 — li; pairs of secon- 
daries C. takakumensis 

Ua. Corolla 3 — 5 ™i. long, glandular-dotted; branches ter- 
ete; leaf -blades with 5 — 9 pairs of secondaries 

C. japonica 
la. Plants densely soft-pubescent to villous; calyx pubescent, h- 
$. Leaves 5 — 10 cm. long, rounded to obtuse at the base; 

branches and leaves with whitish stellate hairs less than 
1 mm. long; calyx-lobes lanceolate; flowers k — 5 nim. long, 

about 10 in a cyme; anthers 1.^ — 2 mm. long C. mollis 

5a. Leaves 15 — 30 cm. long, gradually narrowed at the ^se; 

branches and petioles with pinnatoly branched hairs 1.5 — 3 
mm. long; calyx-lobes linear; flowers about 1.5 mm. long, 
very many in a cyme; anthers about 0,7 mm. long.C_. kochiana 
Chang (1951) regards C_. longi folia var. subglabrata Schau. as, 
in part, a synonym of C. japonica, but I feel that this trinomial 
belongs only in the synonymy of typical C_. longifolia Lam. He 
cites A. N. Steward 57 and nos. I63I , 2617 , 3303, & 10051; of col- 
lectors and/or herbaria whose names he gives only in Chinese

In his 19 h9 work, Hatusima regards the name, C. japonica var. 
kotoensis (Hayata) Masam., as the correct designation for the 
taxon here being discussed, but Rehder's varietal epithet was 
validly published 2U years earlier I 

Masamune (1955), Ohwi (I965), and Chang (1951) regard C. aus- 
tralis Koidz. as a synonym of C. japonica var. luxurians and in 

1971 Uoldenke, Monograph of Callicarpa U5 

this opinion they may well be correct. Uasamune regards the "C. 
japonica Thiinb." of Haximowicz (1886), L:ats\imura (1899 ^ 1912, 
insofar as Ryukyu specimens are concerned), Kuroiwa [I9OO "p.p. 
(sic mollis )"], Kawagoe (1915), Simada (1917), Wilson (1920), 
Sakaguchi (192U), and Llakino & Nemoto (1936, insofar as Ryukyu 
specimens are concerned) as actually referring to this same var- 
iety. Kanehira (1936) and Chang (1951) regard C_. kotoensis Hay- 
ata as a valid species, with C. antaoensis Hayata as a synonym. 
I regard C . antaoensis as a synonym of C . longifolia Lam . 

Matsumxira (1955) cites the Maximowicz work (1886) as "1887" 
and Hara's 19li8 work as "19U9". 

Recent collectors describe C. japonica var. luxurians as a 
shrub to 15 feet tall, growing among other shrubs on open slopes, 
in hedges along roadsides (on Okinavra) , and common in secondary 
thickets (on Yonakuni Island), at 100 — 150 m. altitude, flowering 
in September, and fruiting in August (in addition to the months 
previously reported). The corollas on E. K. Walker 81^52 are de- 
scribed as having been "pale lavender" and the anthers yellow. 
Additional vernacular names and variant orthographies recorded 
for the plant are "omurasakisikibu", "tosamurasaki", "tosa- 
murasaki", "yakushima-ko-murasaki", "yakusima-komurasaki", and 
"yakusima-ko^nurasaki" . 

Ohwi (1965) says "July — Sept. Wanner districts; Shikoku, 
Kyushu" for what he regards as C_. shikokiana Mak. and "July — 
Aug. Lowlands near the sea; Honshu, Shikoku, Kyushu; rather 
common" for what he regards as the true C. japonica vac luxurians. 
For the latter Lasamune (1955) gives the overall distribution as 
"Yakusina, Shikoku, Kyushu, Itukusima, Syodosina", but other 
authors record it also from Tanegasima, Kutinoerabu, Takesima, 
Nakanosima, Suwanose, Takarazima, Amani-osima, Okati, Iheyazima, 
Okinawa, llinami-daitozima, Miyako, Isigaki, Iriomote, Sirahama, 
and Komi,

Recent collectors describe this plant as a shrub, $ — 1$ feet 
tall, growing in thickets and on rocky slopes along roadsides. 
The corollas are described as "white" on Chiao 2617 and the 
fruits as purple on E, H^ Wilson 8109 . 

Material of this variety has been misidentified and distribu- 
ted in herbaria as C . oshimensis Hayata . On the other hand, the 
J. F. Rock 2523 , distributed as this variety, is actually G.

as follows: "A typo recedit foliis angustioribus oblong-lanceola-

in 1932, and deposited in the herbarium of the Botanical Insti- 
tute of Sunyatsen University, Canton, China.

Because of the extreme rarity of this journal in libraries, 
Chcing's original (1951) description of this taxon is repeated 
herewith: "Frutex 3 m altus. Hamuli teretes homotini dense ful- 
vo-tomentosi; annotini glabrescentes cinereo-nigrescentes lenti- 
cellati. Folia oblonga vel elliptica 15 — 20 cm longa, 5.5 — 8 cm

liqua, margine supra medium remorissime denticulata, supra costis 
nervisque exceptis glabra in sicco nigrescentia, subtus tomentoso- 
incanaj costa supra plana subtus elevata, nervis lateralibus u- 
trinsecus 13 — 16 supra conspicuis subtus elevatisj petioli crassi 
1.5 — 2.5 cm longi tomentosi. Cymae diffusae sexies dichotomae 6 — 
9 cm latae tomentosae, pedunculis 3 — 5 cm longis; bracteae folia-

The type and apparently only known collection of this species 
is W. Y. Chun 5121, collected in Hongkong in 1926 and deposited 
in the herbarivim of the Botanical Institute of Sunyatsen Univer- 
sity, Canton, China. The author compares it (in Chinese) with C.

This extremely variable and much misunderstood species occxirs, 
in its typical form from eastern Pakistan and India through trop- 
ical southeast Asia, north to southern China and Hainan Island, 
and east to Indochina, Malaya, the Philippines, the Moluccas, New 
Guinea, New Ireland, and Queensland. It is widely cultivated and 
has been introduced in Peru and Madagascar. The type was collec- 
ted by Pierre Sonnerat in the vicinity of Malacca before 1783 and 
is deposited in the Lamarck Herbarium at the Mus^vmi National d' 
Histoire Naturelle at Paris . Because of the abundant confusion 
and misinterpretation of this taxon, Lamarck's original descrip- 
tion is worth repeating here: "Callicarpe a feuilles longues . 
Callicarpa longifolia . Callicarpa foliis longis lanceolatis sub- 
dentatis, utrinque viridibus, corjonbis parvis axillaribus. N. 
C'est une espece bien remarquable par la forme de ses feuilles, &. 
qui est presqu'entierement glabre dans toutes ses parties. Ses 
feuilles sont oppos^es, p^tiol^es, longues-lanc6ol6es, pointeus,

d'un pouce & demi. Les fleurs sont petites, disposiSes conme dans 
les pr5c6dentes; elles ont un calice court, presque tronqu^ ou i 
quatre dents peu sensibles; une corolle infundibuliforme (S: quadri- 
fide; quatre ^tamines une fois plus longues que le corolle; & un

termini par un stigmate en t8te tronquSe. Cette plante cix)lt 
dJins les environs de Malac, S: nous a 6t6 coramuniqu^e par M. Son-

latis subdentatis utirLnque viridibus, cymis axillaribus laxiuscu- 
lis . Circa urbem Malacam.l^ Fol, 8-pollicaria . PI. distinctiss.

The species has been found grovring in forests, high forests, 
and rainforests, dense or evergreen forests, fairly wet open tall 
secondary or virgin forests, clearings, secondgrowth, rainforest 
regroirth, secondary scrub, small openings in rainforests, and open 
slightly shaded spots in primary forests, on level land or river 
gravel, hills and grassy hillsides, and slopes, along lanes and 
streams, and at abandoned campsites and scrub-edge, from sealevel 
to 2000 meters altitude, flowering and fruiting in every month of 
the year. 

Lei describes it as "abundant scattered shrubs in sandy soil on 
dry level land along roadsides" on Hainan Island. Ridley (1909) 
avers that it is "Common in the low country" of Malaya. Hoogland 
reports it as "fairly conunon in low regrowth" in Papua, while Brass 
says that it is "plentiful in rainforest regrowths" and "common in 
rainforests" in the same land. Kanohira L Hatusima found it to be 
"fairly common at the edge of rainforests" in neighboring New Gui- 
nea and give its general distribution as "India through lialaya to 
New Guinea, northward to Formosa", In Thailand it is said t^ 
Smitinand to be "conmon along paths in evergreen jungle", Thaworn 
says "common in lowland evergreen forests",- and Boonchuai, Bunnak, 
and Suvarnakoses all refer to it as "scattered in evergreen 
jungles". Lau tells us that on Hainan it is "fairly common in 
moist level land and clay soil of meadows". Panigrahi &, Joseph 
(1966) says that the species is scarce in Nefa and cites his no. 
lIt97U . Matthew (I966) records it from West Bengal. Deb. Gupta, & 
Malick (1968) tell us that in Bhutan it is found on the "outskirts 
of forests". 

Watt (I889) says of it "A shrub of the Malaya Peninsula, Penang, 
and Nicobar Islands"; Ridley (1923) says "Tropical Asia", Bakhuizen 
van den Brink (192li) "southeast Asia and tropical Australia", and 
DoDjdn "from Malacca through Malaya to northeast Queensland" . Hooker 
& Mueller (I87O) regarded it as native and "widely spread over the 
Indian Archipelago, extending into India to Khasia and East Bengal", 
P'ei (I9U7) records it from Szechuan, China, while Prain (1903) re- 
cords- it from "C[entral] Bengal; Tippera; Chittagong" . Several 
authors record it from "Prince of Wales Island", but it is not cer- 
tain if they are referring to the island of this name in Penang or 
the one in Torres Strait near Australia. 

Some Types and Range Extensions in Hybanthus (Violaceae) 
C. V. Morton 

In 1944, I published a paper "The Genus Hybanthus in Continental 
North America" (Contr. U. S. Nat. Herb. 29: 74-82. 1944). Since that 
time two significant papers have been published on Hybanthus , one by 
L. B. Smith and A. Fernandez -Perez , on the Colombian species (Caldasia 
6: 124-136. 1954) and one, by Standley and Williams, on the Guatemalan 
species (Fieldiana, Bot. 24 (7, no. 1): 72-76. 1961). At the time of 
my publication I had not seen some of the essential types. Since then 
I have studied the specimens in various European herbaria, especially 
those in London and Paris. These studies did not reveal any mis- 
interpretations in the paper, but two of the dubious species can now 
be placed, leaving only two still dubious -- lonidium lasiocarpum Presl 
and I^. lobelioides Schlecht. My notes on types and some range ex- 
tensions are here brought together, with comments also on three new 
species recently described from Central America by others.

lonidium attenuatum Humb. 6cBonpl. ex Roem. & Schult. in L. Syst. Veg. 
ed. nov. 5: 402. 1819. TYPE: Cited merely as "in America 
meridionali"; the subsequent publication of the nomenclaturally 
synonymous name lonidium riparium H. B. K. gave the type 
locality as Angostura de Carare, on the banks of the Rio 
Magdalena, Colombia, Humboldt and Bonpland . The holotype is 
presumably in the Willdenow Herbarium, Berlin. 

lonidium riparium H. B. K. Nov. Gen. & Sp. 5: 378. 1823. This is 
a superfluous change of name of I^. attenuatum , which is cited 
as a synonym. The description is much amplified from the brief 
one given by Roemer and Schultes, and a definite locality is 
cited. The specimen that served for the description is in the 
Humboldt Herbarium, Paris (no. 1643, from Angostura, Rio 
Magdalena, Colombia); there is a duplicate from the Bonpland 
Herbarium in the general herbarium in Paris. In my 1944 paper 
I did not cite any type from H. attenuatus . The Paris specimens 
show that the species was correctly interpreted. 

lonidium calceolarium Ging. in DC. Prodr. 1: 311. 1824. TYPE: 
Mexico, Sessg 6e Mocino . Gingins saw only a drawing. I have 
now seen a Sesse and Mociiio specimen at Kew named Viola 
calceolaria which agrees with Gingins' description and with 
Sesse and Mocifto's own later published description of their 
Viola calceolaria . This Kew specimen is here designated 
lectotype. It is a synonym of Hybanthus attenuatus , and has 
nothing at all to do with Viola calceolaria L.

edition which I have not seen. 

lonidium botterii Turcz. Bull. Soc. Nat. Moscou 36(1): 556. 

1863. TYPE: Orizaba, Veracruz, Mexico, Botteri s.n. This 
species has never been placed. I have not seen the type, but 
a collection of Botteri 319 in the British Museum is from 
Orizaba and agrees fairly well with the original description, 
except that the upper flowers are not subsessile. It is 
likely that this does represent I^. botterii , which is then 
identical with H. attenuatus , which is well known from 
Orizaba and adjoining regions.

Calceolaria brevis Dowell, Bull. Torrey Bot. Club 33: 552. 1906. 

TYPE: Volc5n Jumaytepeque, Santa Rosa, Guatemala, Heyde 6e Lux 
3943 1 (US). 

Ihis species, which I reduced to H. elatus in my revision, 
appears sufficiently distinct in foliage characters. The leaves 
are small, not more than 8 cm. long, and merely acute whereas 
those of H. elatus are generally 13--15 cm. long, and long-attenuate 
at tip; the midribs and veins beneath are minutely but obviously 
puberulous in H. brevis and glabrous in H. elatus . The range is 
Chiapas (Sumidero of Yochib, Koltol Te ' , Breed love 6231; Moel Ch'en, 
above Tenejapa, Breed love 10902) and Guatemala (Coban, Alta Verapaz, 
Tuerckheim II 1354; Volcan Jumaytepeque, Santa Rosa, Heyde & Lux 
4435; Rio Frio, between Tactic and Santa Cruz, Alta Verapaz, Molina & 
Molina 12248; Cerro Pixpix, Huehuetenango, Steyermark 50590). As 
may be noted, the departments of Guatemala in which H. brevis occurs 
are all different from those where H. elatus has been found, which 
may indicate some ecological preferences. 

HYBANTHUS CALCEOLARIA (L.) G. K. Schulze, Notizbl. Bot. Gart. 
Berlin 12: 114. 1934. 
In 1944 I knew this distinctive species in North America from 
only a single collection from British Honduras, and suspected that 
it might be an introduction. This is evidently not true, for the 
species is now known from several collections from British Honduras 
and also from Veracruz and Oaxaca , Mexico, viz.: Mexico: East of 
Alvarado, Veracruz, Miranda 8513; northeast of MinatitlSn, Veracruz, 
King 1051; northwest of Zanatepec, Oaxaca, King 483; east of

HYBANTHUS CHIAPENSIS Lundell, Wrightia 4: 36. 1968. 

TYPE: Carelas, Chiapas, Mexico, Matuda 5514. 

I have seen no material. This is the fifth shrubby species known 
from Mexico, It can be distinguished from the others by its 
solitary flowers, small, congested leaves, and large capsules ca. 
1 cm. long. 

HYBANTHUS ELATUS (Turcz.) Morton, Contr. U. S. Nat. Herb. 29: 80. 
In my revision I placed Hybanthus brevis (Dowell) Standi, as a 
synonym, but a reexamination of the type and other material indi- 
cates that it can stand as distinct. The true H. elatus is repre- 
sented by specimens from Veracruz ( Botteri 895, L. C. Smith 1840), 
Mexico (Tequezquinahuac , Cerro de Azompan, Matuda 31181, US), 
Ghiesbreght 47 (perhaps from Chiapas ?), and Guatemala (Finca 
Verge i, San Marcos, Stand ley 68921; Aldea Fraternidad, San Marcos, 
Williams et al . 26024; Volcin Fuego, Chimaltenango, Steyermark 
52056; Volcin Santa Clara, Suchitep^quez , Steyermark 46627; between 
Finca Pirineos and Patzulln, Quezaltenango, Stand ley 87076; between 
Santa Maria de Jesus and Palin, Escuintla, S tand ley 61293. The 
specimen that I cited from Oaxaca ( Conzatti & Cancino 2432) proves 
on further study to represent H. verbenaceus (H. B. K. ) Loesen. 
I still have not seen the type of H. elatus, which is presumably 
in Leningrad, and so it is placed from the description only. 

HYBANTHUS GALEOTTII (Turcz.) Morton ex Williams, Fieldiana Bot. 
29: 358. 1961. 

lonidium galeottii Turcz, Bull. Soc. Nat, Moscou 27(2): 339. 
1854. TYPE: Jalapa, Veracruz, Mexico, Galeotti 7085, 

Hybanthus occultus (Polak,) Standi. Field Mus . Publ. Bot. 18: 
714. 1937. 

In 1944, I adopted the name H. occultus and regarded lonidium 
galeottii as a dubious species. However, I have now seen a photo- 
graph (Field Museum no. 24006) of an isotjrpe of 1. galeottii from 
the herbarium in Geneva, and this shows that the species is 
identical with Purpus 13012, from Zacuapan, Veracruz, Mexico, the 
type of Hybanthus purpus ii Standi., which I consider the same as 
the Costa Rican H, occultus (Polak,) Standi. Since lonidium 
galeottii (1854) has priority over I^. occultum Polak. (1877), 
the new combination H. galeottii was necessary. 

Although I treated this plant among the herbaceous species of 
the genus, it is actually usually a shrub. According to the data 
on Skutch 2413, it is: "A shrub 2 m. high, with slender, wiry stems; 
flowers white, with a yellow spot at base of the large petal." 
According to Austin-Smith H796: "Open diffuse shrub with stems 

1971 Morton, I^ybanthus 59 

over 1 m. long; bark pale brown; leaves thin, faintly scabrous; 
lower lip petal large, pure white." Steyermark 49639 says 
"Shrub 3 feet tall; petals lilac -white; leaves membranous, 
rich green above, pale green beneath." These quotations show 
that there may be some variability in the flower color,

HYBANTHUS OPPOSITIFOLIUS (L.) Taubert, in Engl. & Prantl, Nat. 
Pflanzenfam. 3(6): 333. 1895. 
lonidium longifolium Sess6 & Mocifto ex Ging. in DC. Prodr. 1: 311. 
1824. TYPE: Mexico, Sess^ & Mociflo . Gingins saw no specimens, 
There is a Sess6 and Mociflo specimen in the British Museum 
determined as Viola longifolia from "N. E.," i.e. Nueva 
Espafla (=Mexico). This agrees with Gingins' description 

60 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 1 

and is surely authentic. It is here designated lectotype. 
My 1944 disposition of the species as a synonym of H. 
oppositifolius was correct. Mounted on the same sheet 
is another Sesse and Mocifto specimen from Mexico with the 
name " Viola linearifolia ," unpublished name; this is also 
a poor specimen of H. oppositifolius . 
lonidium parietariifolium DC. Prodr. 1: 308. 1824. 
lonidium parietariifolium var. houstonii DC. Prodr. 1: 308. 1824. 
lonidium par ie tar iif o 1 ium var. berterii DC. Prodr. 1: 308. 1824. 
The species 1. parietariifolium was originally divided into two 
varieties a houstonii and P berterii . It is evident that var. a 
is to be considered as the typical variety. It was based on a 
collection from Veracruz in the Banks Herbarium (British Museum) 
and on a specimen in the Lambert Herbarium from Peru collected by 
Ruiz and Pavon. I designate the specimen in the British Museum as 
lectotype; it bears the notation "Viola americana annua erecta 
par ie tar iae folio flore oblongo" and was evidently from the Miller 
Herbarium and collected by Houston. It represents typical Hybanthus 
attenuatus (Humb. & Bonpl.) G. K. Schulze. The var. berterii was 
described from "in Sanctae Marthae", evidently the Santa Marta 
Mountains, Colombia, collected by Bertero. I have seen an isotype 
in Paris labelled "Ins. S. Marthe, de M. Balbis cuilli par M. 
Bertero, no. 35." The "Ins.," i.e. "insula" is evidently an error 
for "in," since Santa Marta is not an island. This specimen 
probably represents H. attenuatus also, but it is dwarf and atjrpical. 
Although a perennial, H. oppositifolius sometimes flowers the first 
year from seed and therefore appears annual. Annual plants can be 
distinguished from the strictly annual H. attenuatus by the 
essentially glabrous stems, those of H. attenuatus being strongly 
pilose in broad lines. This may now be reported also from British 
Honduras (Mountain Pine Ridge, El Cayo District, Lundell 6661; 
Augustine, El Cayo District, Hunt 117) and Honduras (El Zamorano, 
Morazan, Stand ley 19009). 

HYBANTHUS PROCTORI Lundell, Wright ia 4: 37. 1968. 

TYPE: Between Pulay and San Juan Cotzal, El Quiche, Guatemala, 
Proctor 25009. 

I have not seen the type, but there is a paratype in the National 
Herbarium: Neba j , El Quiche, Contreras 5032. This is an herbaceous 
species that will run to H. verbenaceus in my key, to which it is 
not perhaps closely allied. It has much larger, differently shaped 
leaves, and elongate pedicels.

the specific locality was given by H. B. K. under nomen- 
claturally the synonymous lonidium anomalum as "in sylvis

Colombia] . 
lonidium anomalum H. B. K. Nov. Gen. & Sp. 5: 381, t. 500 . 1823. 
A superfluous change of epithet for Viola prunifolia Humb. & 
Bonpl., cited as a synonym. The description is much amplified 
from that given by Roemer and Schultes. I have seen the 
isotype in the Humboldt Herbarium, Paris, and another in the 
general Herbarium, Paris, no. 1454 from the Bonpland Herbarium, 
noted as from Turbaco. 

HYBANTHUS SERRULATUS Standi. Journ. Washington Acad. Sci. 17: 312. 
In 1944 this species was known only from the type from Michoac^n 
or Guerrero, Langlasse 558. Mr. George Hinton turned up three 
additional collections in his extensive explorations of western 
Mexico: OcatitlSn, State of Mexico, Hinton 8587; Puerto Zarzamora, 
Michoacdn, Hinton 12716, and Vallecitos, Guerrero, Hinton 11654.

Wilson 329. 

I have not seen the type. A specimen identified by Lundell as 
probably this is Seamay, Peten, Guatemala, Contreras 6656, and from 
the description it does appear to be the same. This is the sixth 
shrubby species known from Central America. It does not appear to 
be closely allied to the others, differing in its large, glabrous, 
lanceolate, entire leaves, and its small, fasciculate flowers on 
slender pedicels. 

HYBANTHUS THIEMEI (Donn. Smith) Morton, Contr. U. S. Nat. Herb. 29:

This species has been previously known in Mexico only from Campeche. 
It may now be reported also from Yucatan, Gaumer in 1895, no. 855 
(BM), without specific locality (originally distributed as lonidium 
brevicaule Mart.). It may also be reported from Costa Rica for the 
first time: Vicinity of El General, Prov. San Jos6, Skutch 3960, 
3975 (both US).

lonidium verbenaceum H. B. K. Nov. Gen. & Sp. 5: 379, t. 497 . 1823. 

In my 1944 paper I did not cite a type for this species. It was 
described from "in Horto Mexicano," i.e. in a Mexican garden. Since 
this species is by no means ornamental and has no known uses, it may 
be assumed that the original plant was naturally occurring in the 
garden rather than cultivated. I have now seen the holotype in the 

62 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 1 

Humboldt Herbarium in Paris (no. 4024, marked "Hort. Mexican." 
It shows that the species was correctly interpreted in my paper. 
The t3rpe is a small perennial, with the acute leaves cuneate at 
base, ca. 2 cm. long and 1,5 cm. broad, bluntly toothed, with 
about eight teeth on either side; the calyx lobes are slender 
and pubescent and the labellum not villous; there are no capsules 
present. It is similar to a specimen in Paris collected by 
Brother Nicolas (s.n.), at Guadelupe, Puebla, Mexico, June 15,

Hybanthus linearis (Torr.) Shinners, Field & Lab. 19: 126. 1951. 
Shinners has adopted the name H. linearis for the common Texas 
form of this species, which has most of the leaves alternate rather 
than opposite or verticillate . However, the position of the leaves 
appears to be variable and perhaps not significant. Plants with 
alternate leaves are also commonly found in Mexico, and one such 
is lonidium gracile Sesse & Mociilio ex Ging. in DC. Prodr. 1: 309. 
1824. If plants with alternate leaves are to be segregated then 
the epithet gracile has priority over linearis .

many lovers of fungi generally and mushrooms specifically, of col- 
lections of artistic plates, and of exotically attractive books I 
For those who can garner the marks, pounds, or dollars there is 
a wonderful treat in store. Basically following Singer's classi- 
fication, 138 species and subspecies in 1$ genera of the Strobilo - 
mycetaceae and the Boletaceae are effectively keyed, described 
and given both geographic and ecologic distribution. Their edi- 
bility is considered. There are 16 plates with outline drawings 
of spores, cystidia (mostly cheilocystidia) and basidia. There is 
a good bibliography and index. Then there are those 72 truly mag- 
nificent, natural size, natural color plates with over UOO p>aint- 
ings by the senior author on them. 

This work represents the only modem publication in this area 
and a professional lifetime of skilled effort. It is regretted 
that the still commonly used scientific synonyms and common names 
are not included since this book will surely appeal to many more 
than the professional and student mycologists. It is a must for 
colleges, universities, botanical and related institutions and 
all better libraries both public and private.

level for majors and non-najors who have had a preliminary semes- 
ter of training in the physical sciences. Actually the material 
is carefully enough explained not to be dependent upon that course. 

As part of the trend of this day the content is primariDy bio- 
chemistry and human nexiral physiology. Of course, much of value 
can be learned from this orientation, but there is almost nothing 
of a holistic approach to the world of living plants and animals 
until the next to the last chapter which is devoted to ecology. 
There is no mention of any part of biosystematics . The book is 
modestly illustrated. Page 1^1 shows three good black/white 
photographs of the stele of root, stem and leaf but with no iden- 
tification of the plant(s) involved j many texts tend to be careless 
in this way. Questions at the ends of the chapters are often in- 
telligent. The realistically short bibliographies there are also 
good, but references to several common important works were 
missed, such as to Ehrlich's work in the ecology chapter. 

The "Teacher's Guide" should be particularly helpful to begin- 
ning instructors .

This new combination is the result of re-appraissJ. of the 
value of the character of the articulation of the peduncle. 'When 
given greater weight this feature relates D. elongatus Britton and 
D. ovalifolius closely to P. pendulus (Sw. ) Decne7 & Planch. The 
number of flowers in an umbel is regairded as a feature greatly 
affected by the age of the plant so that D. elongatus goes into 
the synonymy of D. pendulus irtiile D. ovalifolius can be separated 
on the basis of leaf -shape.

Although the type specimen of this variety was made frco a 
gnarled tree with clustered rather anall leaves and shojrt inflor- 
escences, the fact that the obtuse-leafed variant occurs also in 
company with var. nutans in several parts of the range suggests 
that it is not merely an ecad of exposed situations. There is 
sane pi.irpose in establishing a name for this variety, but in view 
of the lack of knowledge of causes of variation in the genus and 
the close affinities of most of the Jamaican species, it might be 
misleading to cite paratype and other specimens.

This species is rather common in sulMiontane woodlands on shale 
or limestone in eastern Jamaica. Palicourea pulchra Griseb., also 
endemic, is its vicariant in central and western parishes. The 
affinity of both these sfpecies is with the the widespread P. crocea 
(Sw. ) Schult. from which they differ in having larger corollas never 
orange or red. P. crocea is almost always quite markedly hairy in 
Jamaica although towards the southern part of its range it becomes 
glabrous; S. Moore in Pawcett & Rendle, Flora of Jamaica, Vol. 7 
referred the plant now being described as P» wilesii to P» riparia 
Benth. but that is generally regarded as representing the southerly 
veolants of P» croceeu

This new species resonbles Rondeletia hirta Sw, but is dist-

cordate at the base. Like many of the Jamaican species of 
Rondeletia , this plant has a strong tendency to develop crimson 
coloration in the vegetative parts, especially on the petioles and 
the xxndersurfaces of the leaves. The habit of branching is much 
ajffected by the physical situation; in the open coppice regrowth 
develops erect shoots with large leaves; in the shade the branches 
are straggly and the leaves snaller with often relatively longer

Otto & Isa Degener, Volcano, Hawaii 

Degener Nos. 21,762 and 21,763, collected at "Keauohana Forest 
Reserve, near Pahoa, Hawaii. Among scrub; spreading 2 ft. high 
bush. Feb. 2, 1952.", comprised such a curious taxon "with robust 
leaves," that the collector suspected it to be a new variety of 
Scaevola kilaueae Deg. Yet fearing the specimens might, after all, 
simply represent plants of the species £.s^», especially robust be- 
cause growing under conditions of exceptional rainfall and rich 
soil, he left the many sheets lying fallow for nearly twenty years 
in the herbarium of the " Museum botanicum Berolinense " in Dahlem. 

Interest in the above was revived when Dr. Howard A. Powers, 
geologist stationed on the brink of Kilauea Grater, Island of Ha- 
waii and a keen amateur botanist, drew the attention of the writers 
to a curious naupaka he had discovered. A few twigs were collected 
and labeled as follows t "Degener & Degener No. 32,^1. X Scaevola 
kilaueae X S. chamissoniana var. bracteosa Hillebr. Old look out at 
Pauahi Grater, Haw. Vole. Nat. Park, Hawaii. In scrub at 3»200 
feet within 1 meter of S. k. (D, & D. 32,442) & 1 km. of S. c. b. 
on Puu Huluhulu. Discovered by Dr. Howard Powers. (Gollected by 
Degeners) July 22, 1970." 

Because of the resemblance between Nos. 21,762, 21,763 and 
32,441, we believe the former two plants represent not a simple 
hybrid like probably No. 32,441, but rather a more or less con- 
stant variety of early hybrid origin. We surmise a plant like No. 
32,441 with its limited gene pool, if isolated for a hundred gener- 
ations or so by surrounding veneers of lava in a kipuka (lava 
oasis), would de novo evolve into a taxon resembling the new var- 
iety described below; 

SCAEVOLA KILAUEAE var. POWERSII Deg. & Deg. Frutex 7 dm. altus, 
ramis ramulisque divaricatus . Folia rigida coriacea, ^ - 8^ mm . 
longa , 12-20 mm. lata, margine 6-1^ serrato-dentata . Corolla 
flava. This variety, represented by the type Deg. & Deg. No. 
21,763 mentioned above and returned to Berlin for deposit, is in- 
termediate between S^. chamissoniana var. bracteosa Hillebr., and S. 
kilaueae Deg., with features of the latter predominating. For in- 
§tance, it is a shorter, more spreading shrub than the former taxon. 
Its leaf size is almost of the former, yet the texture is leathery, 
with only midrib showing on both surfaces and ribs showing faintly 
on lower surface. The few serrate-dentate teeth end almost columnar 
as does the apex of the leaf itself. S. c_. var. bracteosa , on the 
contrary, has subcoriaceous leaves in which ribs and veins are 
prominent on both surfaces, and the teeth are more numerous and 
more extensively distributed. The inflorescence in length approach- 
es that of the former; though the flowers are less in number, about 
25 mm. long, narrow-lobed, and dull yellowish.

This revision follows the same plan as that of Tlllandsia In 
my Notes on Bromeliaceae, XXXI, in Phytologia 20: 121. 19T0. It 
completes preliminary revisions of the major genera of the Til- 
landsioideae for my monograph, Vrlesea having appeared in XXIII 
in Phytologia I3: 84. 1966, and Catopsie in XXVII in Phytologia 
16: &*. 1968. Mezobromelia and Glomeropitcairnia with 2 species 
eax:h are too small to need preliminary treatment, but there is a 
strong probability that good corolla material will show the 
necessity of transferring species now in Quzmania to Mezobromelia 

Several species of Tlllandsia and Vrlesea and both of Mezobro - 
melia have the flowers polystichous or in more than 2 ranks and 
can not be distinguished from Quzmania with certainty without 
good corollas. They are Included in this key on the same basis 
as that of the simulators in the revision of Tlllandsia .

be distinct but there are too many intermediates to permit any 
satisfactory division into subgenera.

Otto & Isa Degener 

The two volume work quaintly entitled "The Nature of the Benin 
Islands" and "Compiled by Takasi Tuyama and Shigeo Asami* arrived 
as a Christmas gift from Dr. Tuyama Professor of Botany, Ochano- 
mizu University, Tokyo. Dr. Tuyama, and Dr. Charles Lamoureux of 
the University of Hawaii, had visited at our home on the north 
shore of Oahu some months before with a package of Benin herbari- 
um specimens for comparison with Hawaiian taxa. A chain-smoker, 
after our study in the wind-free house, we entertained our for- 
eign guest out of doors, enthralled by his description of his plant 
exploration in his chosen archipelago, known to the Japanese as 
Ogasawara-jima, Due to our bombarding the group in August 19^3 f we 
may remember that the fifteen or so "larger" islands with a total 
area of forty square miles, are of i^olcanic origin and part of 
Micronesia, They are not low, coral atolls with a monotonous biota. 

We have prepared the present review for our peers as neither we, 
nor you (we surmise) are versed in the Japanese language. The vol- 
umes are in board covers, about 7 l/2 inches wide and 10 l/2 inches 
high, and have an excellent quality of filled paper. The number of 
pages, shown in Arabic, for Volume I comes to 271; but about a 
score more unnumbered pages occur with maps showing often on grids 
elevations, soils, rainfall, etc. The frontispiece is a colored 
plate of a beautiful aerial scene of the rugged coastline, while 
following it is a Pacific blue and leaf green two-page spread of 
the entire archipelago in relief. Nearer the middle of the book 
and beyond are four colored plates , one depicting nine gaudy ma- 
rine organisms, s^ch as bryozoons and sea urchins, and the remain- 
der displaying an assortment of 56 typical marine mollusks. Be- 
side a good sprinkling of black and white half-tones of geologic 
and other diagrams, of photos of plants (some not too clear), of 
prints of birds, this volume contains JZ full-page additional 
plates in black and white. These are a melange of scenes showing 
the typical vegetation from an understory of Marattia to a shore 
predominantly of Pandanus ; from close-ups of the most interesting 
Flowering Plants to "land shells," insects, crustaceans and dia- 
grams of the commoner sea birds in flight; and human interest, 
such as showing Drs. Tuyama and Asami with student assistants, of 
village scenes, of outrigger canoes, of some World War II ship and 
•plane wreckage and, at the very end a monument in good taste fly- 
ing the Japanese and American flags side by side to the tragic 
victims of a conflict stimulated by population pressure. 

For us, specializing in the Hawaiian flora, Volvime I is useful 
as the scientific names of the Ferns and Flowering Plants (as are 
those of the animals as well) are given in English, though the des- 
criptions in Japanese are beyond our understanding. We can thus see 
how closely the two floras approach each other. This hardly per- 
tains to species, excepting for some ferns and some ocean dissemi- 
nated halophytes like Colubrina asiatica ; but certainly to genera. 


98 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 2 

For the non-specialist, for those unacquainted with the Japanese 
language, and for those for whom the Bonin Islands are little more 
than a name, we do not recommend investing in this book. 

Volume II is decidedly a "horse of another color." It is truly 
outstanding! There is no text at all; instead, there are 228 mag- 
nificently executed colored plates comprising about ^75 separate 
photographs. Among the first are important views of Chichi- jima, 
Futami Bay, andesite and marine cliffs, green olivine sand called 
uguisizuma , agate. Tertiary rocks, semi-fossil snail shells, "Oni- 
iwa, an ogreish stack," northernmost Haha-jima, pinnacled islets of 
Harino-iwa, etc. All this is the groundwork for understanding the 
environment for the Bonin Island biota. Then follow plates ^3 "to 
130 comprising 213 exquisite color photographs of mostly native 
plants, many so easy to recognize as they or their relatives are 
likewise found in the better-known Hawaiian Islands. Some of the 
identical species, for example, appear to be Ipomoea pes-caprae var. 
emarginata , Cassytha filiformis, Calophyllum inophyllum , Psilotum 
nudum and Neottopteris nidus . Personally prejudiced in noting the 
occurrence of the same, uninteresting, horribly beautiful ornamen- 
tals of gardens the world around threatening a fascinating native 
flora, we regret Drs. Tuyama and Asami's wasted film on the south- 
east Asian Melia azedarach , the American Leucaena " glauca" now 
fovind to be actually leucocephala , the American Psidi\im jguaiava, 
the American Cassia (or as we "splitters" prefer, Ditremexa ) oc- 
cidentalis , the African Thunbergia alata and its Indian relative 
T. laurifolia, the American Schinus terebinthif olius , the American 
Nicotiana tabacum beloved by Dr. Tuyama, an atypical African Hi - 
biscus schizopetalus with Asiatic admixture, the more southern 
Codiaeum variegatum hort., the American Allamanda cathartica , the 
American Poinsettia pulcherrima hort., the East ? Indian Bryophyl - 
Itun pinna tum , the American Agave americana and a variety of the 
American Passiflora foetida. We should have so much preferred en- 
demics or even natives instead. But that, of course, is a matter 
of taste as the old lady maintained when she kissed the cow. 

Plates 131 - 1"^ show magnificently black fruit bats, not un- 
like the larger brown flying foxes gampled broiled in Fiji by one 
of the reviewers; the diminutive deer Cervus mariannus (note double 
"n"), fleeing feral goats; and an example of erosion described as 
"Patches of grassland, result of cattle-bite." The nine plates fol- 
lowing of birds will delight the viewer whether he be ornithologist 
or not. Another plate shows the toad Bufo marianus (note single 
"n"), not to be confused with the Cuban toad B, marinus naturaliz- 
ed in the Ifewaiian Islands. Four plates are devoted to colorful 
insects; about 25 to intricate corals, overlapping somewhat with 
about as many plates devoted to fishes and marine invertebrates. 
The last dozen or so are of human interest 1 scenes of a model vil- 
lage, a meteorological station, a Christian (l) church, a school, 
shipping of specimens and ships, a scene of the Metropolitan Gover- 
nor giving an address, and very appropriately at the very last a 
solemn "Monument of the war dead, Iso-jima." One question, however, 
bothers us. Where are the native Micronesians? Did all fall victims 
to the horrors of war, or were they evacuated never to return?

Pictiires are well nigh a universal language; and Volume II con- 
sists only of these, each with captions in Japanese and English. 
This book we highly recommend to the geologist, to the profession- 
al botanist specializing in plants of the Pacific, to the general 
botanist interested in the plant world as a whole, to zoologists 
of various disciplines, to the armchair traveler, and to the Veter- 
ans of World War II who now can show their families and friends 
the type of islands they defended with devastation and how Nature 
in about thirty years healed the scars of human conflict. 

From the Japanese blurb we cannot tell the price of the work, 
nor whether sets can be broken. Due to the excellence of Volume II, 
we hope the Hirokawa Publishing Company, 2? - I'J-, Hongo - 3, 
Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, Japan, will soon publish an English translation 
of Volume I for the sake of reaching a wider reading public. 

Otto Degener 

A Russian book in the field of Taxonomy is now available to us 
English readers through the authorized translation by C. Jeffrey, 
Senior Scientific Officer, Kew, England, of a work by Armen Takhta- 
jan, Botanical Institute of the Academy of Sciences, Leningrad. 

Dr. Takhtajan's "Flowering Plants, Origin and Dispersal" was 
published by Oliver k Boyd, Edinburgh, in 1969. and sells for i 
2.50. It comprises 3IO pages of which 3I are devoted to the Biblio- 
graphy ("Scottsberg" should read "Skottsberg") and 26 to the Index. 
Though this leaves but 253 po-ges for text, this is packed with in- 
formation illustrated with I3 plates and 32 figures. 

Chapter 3 begins with long established convictions held by many 
of us that "The identity of the ancestors of the flowering plants 
is a most difficult problem - - -.", and that "In spite of their 
great diversity, all seed plants have so much in common that their 
origin from more than one ancestral group seems unlikely." Takhta- 
jan then concludes, in agreement with many other workers, that the 
angiosperms arose from some very ancient group of gymnosperms hav- 
ing primitive secondary xylem of scalariform tracheids and primi- 
tive bisexual strobili. These last must have been large; terminal; 
and with an elongate axis bearing spirally arranged leafy bracts 
and leaf-like, pinnate sporophylls. The micros porangia and ovules 
were numerous; the microsporangia free and the ovules without a 
micro pyle. The strobili in most cases were cross-pollinated by in- 
sects such as beetles. The carpel may have evolved as an organ of 
great survival value, protecting the large ovule from being eaten 
and in general enabling it to become reduced in size. 


PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 2 

The mysterious absence of fossil remains of the earliest flower- 
ing plants is explained as probably due to such groups having e- 
volved rapidly in montane regions where conditions for fossiliza- 
tion were far less favorable than in the lowlands where sediments 
tended to accumulate. 

Chapter 6, the longest, builds the first flowering plants via a 
hypothetical reconstruction. Then follow "Living Fossils." These, 
according to the author, are the Magnoliales , comprising the Win- 
teraceae , Magnoliaceae , Degeneriaceae , Himantandraceae , Eupomati - 
aceae , Annonaceae, Canellaceae and Myristicaceae .Next are charac- 
terized various families, somewhat reminiscent to us English read- 
ers of Arthur J. Eames' "Morphology of the Angios perms," published 
seven years after Takhatajan's "Origin of Angiospermous Plants" 
and the same year as the latter' s second editiono 

Authentic angiosperm fossils are found only from the Early Cre- 
taceous onward. Their center of distribution was somewhere between 
Eastern India and "Polynesia," perhaps more accurately expressed as 
"Melanesia." Aft^r discussing the differentiation of floras, he 
deals with the evolution of the Tertiary flora of the Northern 
Hemisphere. The Appendix, explains his ideas regarding the classi- 
fication of the flowering plants; figure 31, a dendrogram of his 
9^ accepted, living orders, gives a bird's eye view. 

Prof. Takhtajan's "Flowering Plants, Origin and Dispersal" is a 
quicker book to read and to absorb than is the almost contemporary 
text book by Prof. Eames, Both books are especially suited for the 
professional botanist and for the more advanced college student.

Sprengel, in his 1825 work, regards C. lanceolaria Roxb. as a 
distinct species and places C . japonica Thunb . in the synonymy of 
C. longifolia , but in his 1828 work correctly regards Thunberg's 
plant as a distinct and valid species. Beissner, Schelle, & Za- 
bel (1903), on the other hand, place C_. longifolia in synonymy 
under C_. japonica 1 Schauer (I8[i7) reduced C_^ japonica to synonymy 
under C . longifolia . Li (1963) gives a "C_. pilocalyx Clark" as a 
synon3mi of C . longifolia , but by this he unquestionably means C . 
psilocalyx C. B. Clarke, which is a distinct and valid species. 
The Callicarpa acuminata Roxb. cited as a synonym of C. longifolia 
by Schauer (18U7) is actually C. nudl flora Hook. & Am., while the 
C. adenanthera R. Br., also cited by him, is C. candicans (Burm. 
fT) Hochr. 

Kanehira & Hatusima (19li2) feel that C_. formosana Rolfe "does 
not seem to be distinct from this polymorphous and widely distrib- 
uted species [ C. longifolia ]", but with this concept I cannot agree. 
Dop (1932) regards C_. dentata V/all. and C_. virens Reinw., each only 
"in part", as synonyms of C_. longifolia . Bean (1951) regards C. 
longifolia as a synonym of C. japonica var. angustata Rehd., but it 
is only in "sensu Hemsl." that this is true. The Gallic arpus ob- 
longifolia ^ acuminatissima Hassk, is C. pedunculata R. Br. 


102 PEYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 2 

Li (1963) reduces C. kotoensls Hayata and C. japonica var, 
kotoensis (Hayata) Masamune to synonymy under C_. longifolia , say- 
ing "Hayata says of his £. kotoensis as 'near C_. pilocalyx Clark 
and C. longifolia Lamk., but differs from both by the larger 
flowers and less hairy leaves' When compared with large series 
of C. longifolia specimens frcan all over tropical Asia, the Lanyu 
plant cannot be specifically separated" . I regard both names as 
synonymous with C_. japonica var. luxurians Rehd. Kanehira (1936) 
regards C^ antaoensis Hayata as a synonym of what he calls C. 
kotoensis . 

The C . albida Blume , C . attenuata Wall . , C . lanceolaria Roxb . , 
C. longifolia Auct., C_. longifolia L., £^ longifolia Roxb., C.

pus oblongifolia Hassk., included in the synonymy of the typical 
form of C. longifolia Lam. by various previous authors (including 
myself), are now regarded by me as representing f. floccosa Schau., 
which see. 

It should be noted here that the C. americana accredited to 
Blanco and referred to in the synonymy of C . lon gifolia is actual- 
ly a synonym of C. formosana Rolfs, that accredited to Lamarck, 
to Roxburgh, and to Willdenow belongs in the synonymy of C_. ameri -

Thunb.; the C. cana accredited to Dalzell & Gibson is actually C. 
tomentosa (L.) Murr., that credited to Gamble is C . macrophylla 
Vahl, that of Linnaeus, of Sprengel, and of Vahl is C. candicans 
(Burm. f .) Hochr., and that ascribed to Wallich is in part C.

It is worth noting her« that Lamarck's original description of 
C_. longifolia (1785) is often incorrectly dated "1783". 

Because of the great importance of Schauer's treatment of this 
taxon and the various interpretations which have been accorded it 
since that time, it is worthwhile to repeat his discussion here:

Miquel's original description of his C_. lanata ^ uberior 
(1856) is "foliis e basi cuneata elliptic o-oblongis, acumine baud 

abrupte terminatis, semi pedalibus Sumatra." 

Merrill (1912) comments that the Cvmiing 1330 collection from 
the Philippines, cited by Schauer in the above quotation, certainr- 
ly does not agree well with the original description of C_. longi - 
folia and "to me does not appear to be closely allied to Lamarck's 
species". He therefore makes it the type collection of C. doli- 
chophylla Merr., and with this disposition I fully agree. 

When Schauer' s two named forms were regarded as separate from 
the typical fonn of the species, the following key was proposed 
and used in the annotation of a considerable number of herbarivnn 
specimens in many widespread herbaria: 
1. Leaf -blades glabrous beneath or practically so, no stellate 

hairs on the lamina of the lower surface; hairs, if present, 

simple, or stellate only on the midrib C_. longifolia, 

la. Leaf -blades more or less stellate-floccose beneath, 

2. Leaf -blades very sparsely stellate on the lower surface, 

chiefly on the midrib and larger venation 

C. longifolia f, subglabrata . 
2a. Leaf -blades more densely stellate on the lower surface, on 

the lamina as well as on the venation 

C. longifolia f . floccosa. 

This separation, however, has not proved to be practical and I 
now regard Schauer 's f . subglabrata to be equivalent to the typi- 
cal form of the species, as, indeed, it was originally proposed 
by him. His f . floccosa , then, is the only one of his two forms 
now accepted as worthy of being maintained. It was Kochreutiner 
(I93U) who first pointed out that Schauer 's form " subglabrata " 
was actually "Varietas typica speciei" and not a separate taxon. 

The Hainan material cited below has, in general, the leaf- 
blades completely glabrous . Other material is merely subglab- 
rous on the lower surface, with no stellate hairs on the actual 
lamina, the hairs (when present) being mostly simple, or the 

1971 Moldenke, Monograph of Callicarpa 105 

stellate hairs are confined to the midrib, 

Callicairpa longifolia is employed as a hedge plant in parts of 
India, and is also used as a fish-poison. Its bark is used by the 
Japanese on the Johnstone River, in Queensland, as a substitute 
for the betel lead when chewing the Areca nuts with lime. Lam 
(192h) reports that it is also used to check dysmenorrhea. Heyne 
(1917) has this to say: "Rxmphius geeft den naam sanka. . . .opvoor 

zijn Mamanira alba , welke nog niet met zekerheid is geiden- 

tificeerd en beschrijft dien als een struik, niet boven een man 
hoog, wassende op magere velden, in het kreupelbosch en in verla- 
ten tuinen. Van de wortels koken soranigen een drank tegen buik- 
loop. De bladeren dienen als kraamzuiverend raiddel en, fijnge- 
wreven met rijst en wat djinten in azijn gekookt, ter bevochtig- 
ing van omslagen voor - of tot het verdrijven van - harde ye- 
zwellen. Het gebruik van de bladeren van C. longifolia , dat nij 
te Buitenzorg werd opgegeven, kcmt hiermede overeen: zij zouden 
ra. 1. de medicijn wezen voor wonden en zwellingen, die maar niet 
beter willen worden. Ook de toepassing door Ridley. .. .vermeld, 
dat de bladeren worden gebizigt tegen koliek, vindt men bij 
Rumphius terug in het gebmik van de 'wortels . 

"Nog twee niijner aianteekeningen maken melding van inwendig ge- 
bniik als geneesmiddel (een van een afkooksel en een van een koud 
aftreksel van de gewreven bladeren), zoodat het verwondering 
baart, dat deze plant zoo giftig is voor visschen als volgen moet 
uit Indische Vergiftrapporten No. 201, indien tenminste de opge- 
geven wetenschappeli jke naam juist is . lien leest daar, dat op 
Siaoe de bladeren van den tama worden gebizigd om de visschen te 
dooden, die bij eb in het rif zijn achtergebleven . Daartoe worden 
de bladeren of fijngestampt in het water geworpen, of aam de 
steenen van het rif gekneusd, zoodat het sap zich met het zeewa- 
ter vermengt. De visschen zouden onmiddellijk bedwelmd geraken 
en zich gemakkelijk la ten vangen. Iletzelfde geval doet zich ech- 
ter voor bij een andere (nog niey herkende) Callicarpasoort, door 
Rumphius (IV, bl, 12U) onder den naam van Frutex ceramicus be- 
schreven als een heester, op Ambon onbekend, doch op Banda als 
kajoe ceram in de hoven geplant als vischbedwelmend middel. Hij 
zegt, dat men de bladeren stampt in een korf je doet en afgedekt 
een nacht laat staan. i'an gaat daarmede naar plaatsen, waar bij 
afloopend getij water is blijven staan en strooit het, al wrij- 
vend totdat het schuimt, op hot water; de visschen komen daardoor 
dood boven drijven. Voor de menschen en overige wezens is echter, 
zegt Rumphius, deze plant onschadelijk, want de wortel wordt als 
medicijn inwendig gebruikt, de bladeren worden door bokken en 
schapen afgegraasd en spreeuwen en andere vogels eten de vruchten'i 

Panmel, on the authority of Greshoff , also records this species 
as a fish-poison. Uphof (I968) says that it is "Used for poultic- 
ing in fever and colic among the Malays" . 

It should be noted here that the type collection of C. javanica 
is Zippelius s .n. from Java and that of C_. attenuifolia is Elmer 
13536 from Mindanao, Philippine Islands. The ffallich 183$ .1, ci- 

106 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 2 

ted below, and collected in 1822 on Penang Island, is a cotype of 
C. attenuata Yfall,, the other cotypes being an Ahern and a Jack 
collection not seen by me. The basis of C. tomentosa Thunb. is 
the Thiinberg s.n. specimen cited below and deposited in the her- 
barium of the Naturhistoriska Riksmuseum in Stockholm, while that 
of C. longifolia var. acuminatiss ima is Ploem s .n. from Java de- 
posited in the Buitenzorg herbarium. 

Kuntze (I89I) says of his C^ longifolia var. pubinervis: "Fo- 
lia subtus in nervis pubescentia ceterum glabra, sed glandiilis 
punctiformibus munita. Java, verbreitet. Der Beschreibung nach 
gehb'rt auch var. lanceolaria Clarke hierher, aber lanceolaria 
Roxb. wird leaves very hoary underneath beschrieben. Unter var. 
subglabrata verstand Schauer noch var. japonic a OK. (Thbg. I78U), 
foliis glaberrimis." I am designating Kuntze $166 in the Britton 
Herbarium at the New York Botanical Garden as lectotype of this 
variety because this is the only one of the five specimens in 
Kuntze 's herbariian labeled as this variety by him which has the 
Latin description placed by him after the name; it was collected 
at Ngalindung, Java, at an altitude of 3000 feet, on June 23, 

Lindley & Paxton (1853) also comment on the error made by 
Schauer (18U7) in uniting £. japonica Thunb. with C_. longifolia , 
and point out some of the obvious differences between the two 
taxa, stating that in C. longifolia the cymes are smaller, the 
calyx is firm and fleshy, and the calyx- teeth more conspicuous, 
and that it is "a southern plant, much more tender" than C. ja- 

Chopra, Badhwar, & Ghosh (1965) report C. longifolia from the 
Nicobar Islands. They claim that var. lanceolaria (Roxb.) C. B. 
Clarke differs only in having the leaves narroiver and thinner, 
"glabrate and densely minutely gland-dotted beneath when nature'] 
This, however, is a misinterpretation of that taxon, for, as 
Kuntze pointed out, Roxburgh's original description calls for 
the leaf -blades to be "very hoary underneath" . In my opinion, 
it belongs in the synonymy of f . floccosa Schau. The "var. 
lanceolaria " in the interpretation of Chopra, Badhwar, & Ghosh 
is said by then to occur plentifully in central Bengal and in 
the Khasi Hills up to an altitude of about 3000 feet and that 
"it likely possesses fish-poison properties" . These same 
authors describe the mature leaves of C. longifolia as "beneath 
so closely fulvous stellate- villous that few of the glands are 
visible", but obviously this applies not to the typical form of 
the species but to f . floccosa only. It would seem, therefore, 
that what they regard as typical C_. longifolia is really f , floc- 
cosa , while what they regard as var. lanceolstria is actually the 
typical C. longifolia . They refer to the fruit as a "berry", 
but it is actually a drupe. 

Maheshwari (I963) reports that at Delhi the species blooms 

1971 Moldenke, Ponograph of Callicarpa 107 

from September to November and finiits frora January to Llarch. He 
cites tlaheshwari 663 , taken from cviltivated material grovring in 
the TaUcatora Gardens of Delhi . 

Bakhuizen van den Brink (1921) describes C_. longifolia as "A 
slender shrub, branchlets, cymes and petioles almost glabrescent; 
leaves lanceolate, minutely denticulate-serrulate to almost en- 
tire, upper side glabrous when aldult, lower side almost glabrous, 
except on the nerves; cymes slender, lax, rather long petioled; 
calyx scarcely hairy or glabrous; corolla rose or whitish, 
scarcely pubescent outside; ovary densely glandular, not hairy." 
He comments about the f . subglabrata and f . floccosa ; "It is not 
possible to distinguish distinctly the numerous varieties, which 
exist between the above-mentioned two extreme forms." 

Domin (1928) describes, but does not name, a "forma inflores- 
centia valde laxa, divaricata, iteratim dichotoma excellens" from 
Queensland, based on his unnumbered collection from "bei Yarraba 
in den die Bachufer begleitenden Regenwalder bis 550 m empor- 
steigend", collected in January, 1910. A note by C. T. Vftiite on 
Brass 3969 from Papua says "almost the same as much Queenslaind 
material under C. longifolia " . Koorders (1912) tells us that C. 
longifolia is found over "Ganz Java: Von — 1700 m. ii. M. ira 
lichten RegenvTald gemein aber zerstreut" . 

Junell (I93li) notes that "Auch bei C. longifolia habe ich 
einigemale beobachtet, dass die Teiliing des Zentralkerns von 
Bildung einer Quenirand begleitet ist". Dop (1932), in speaking 
of C . bracteata Dop, says: "Cette espece est voisine du G. longi - 
folia Lam. Elle s'en distingue ais&nent par les p^doncules des 
cymes beaucoup plus longs, les bract^es foliac^es. La longueur 
du p^doncules la rapprocherait du C , longipes Dunn de Chine et 
de Hongkong; mais les feuilles longueraent attenu^es, la calice a

A wood sample accompanies R^ S_. TTilliams 2116 • The Teijsmann 
s.n. [Boeroe Kajeli] specimen, cited below, is interesting be- 
cause it consists only of complete leaf-skeletons! The R, Fer- 
reyra U076 collection from Lima, Peru, is doubtfully placed here 
since the collector avers that its fruits were red and that it 
grew in a stony habitat, with no hint that it represents culti- 
vated material . 

Vidal y Soler (1885) cites Cuming I33O from the Philippine Is- 
lands, but this number is the type collection of C. dolichophylla 
Merr., as has been pointed out previously. 

Domin (1923) cites Domin s.n. [Harvey's Creek, XII. 1909] & s_. 
n. [Yarraba, 1,1910] from Queensland. Bentham & iMueller (1870) 
cite only a Dallachy s.n. [Rockingham Bay] from Qu3ensland. Ap- 
parently this was the only Australian specimen of this species 

known to them. They describe it as "leaves green and nearly 

glabrous or sprinkled with very short hairs above, more copiously 

108 PKYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 2 

tomentose and glandular underneath but usually green or very 
slightly rusty or whitish." This description definitely points 
to f . floccosa Schau. rather than to the typical form of the spe- 

Koorders (1912) cites Pulle 3119 from Java. Bakhuizen van den

under C. longifolia f. floccosa . These specimens were mostly an- 
notated by me a considerable number of years ago, before my pres-

The specimens need to be re-examined.

sent f . floccosa instead. 

The Elmer 20102 &. 20lt02 collections, cited below, actually 
show some of the lovfer leaf-surfaces more or less sparsely stel- 
late, but this is usually only on the youngest leaves; the adult 
leaves are glabrate beneath, so I an retaining those two collec- 
tions here under the typical form of the species. The Elmer 
15336 and Lei 111; also seem to exhibit intermediate characters. 

In all, 38Ii herbarium specimens, including type material of 
several of the nanies involved, and 5 moiinted photographs have 
been examined by me.

This fom differs from the typicsQ. form of the species in hav- 
ing the branches and branchlets more or less densely flacescent- 
or canescent-tomentose or canescent-furfuraceous with branched 
hairs, the petioles densely toraentose or fiirfuraceous, the leaf- 
blades more or less densely stellate-furfuraceous or hoary be- 
neath, the peduncles and pedicels densely canescent-furfuraceous 
or flavescent-tomentose, the bractlets pubescent, the calyx more 
or loss densely pubescent or granxxlose-puberulent, the ovary 
densely granular-pulvemlent, and the fruiting- calyx varying 
from densely puberulent to lightly pulverulent. 

Schauer's original (18U7) description of this taxon is as fol- 
lows: "^ . floccosa , ramulis cum inflorescentiae ramis calyce 
foliorumque reti floccoso-tomentosis, foliis adultis superS pa- 
ginS glabratis inferS vero floccis stellaribus sparsis nunc rari-

The C. acuminata Roxb., which Schauer includes in ths synonymy 
of this form, is actually a synonym of £. nudiflora Hook. &l Am,, 
while the C. adenanthera R, Br., vfhich he also includes here, is 
a synonym of C. candicans (Burm. f.) Kochr. His Australian record 
must therefore be discounted and the R, Brown collection removed 
from the list of cotype collections which typify the trinomial. 

Recent collectors describe the plant as a bush, subshrub, or 
small to tall shrub, 1 — 5 m. tall, or rarely a small tree, 8 — 1$ 
m. tall, the trunk usually only about 2 cm. in diameter, but some- 
times attaining a girth of 12.8 cm., the leaves dark-green above, 
pale-green beneath, the flovj^ers pubescent, buds green, anthers 
yellow, and the fruit green when young, white when mature [or 
"purple" on Y/ang 36335 , probably an error in transcription] . It 
h-)3 been found in forests, dense or open forests, primary or sec- 
ondary forests, evergreen forests or light woods, forests near 
boulder creeks, secondgrowth jungles, thickets, open thickets, etc.

TIBOUCHINA RIGIEULA (Naud.) Wurdack, comb. nov. 

Lasiandra rigidula Naud.. Ann. Sci. Nat. ser. 3 Bot. 13: 
150. 1850. 

Cogniaux evidently followed Triana's lead in synonymizing 
Naudin's species under T. aemula (DC.) Cogn.; the latter is 
quite a different species vegetatively and in floral structure. 
Naudin's remarks about the affinities with Lasiandra fontanesiana 
(Bonpl.) DC. are quite true. The species may be characterized by 
the finely strigtolose upper leaf surfaces (not at all bullate), 
roT;ighened erect hairs on the lower leaf surfaces, slightly 
rovighened hypanthial hairs, moderately villose -lanate (the hairs 
caducously gland -tipped) filaments, and the nearly glabroxis 
style; probably the best placement in Cogniaux' monograph would 
be (ex char.) near T. formosa Cogn. The type locality for T. 
rigldula, "Villa Principe", is equivalent to present-day Serro 
in Mlnas Gerais between Itabira and Diamantina; a recent collec- 
tion from the same region is Irwin. Maxwell . & Wasshau^en 20331 
(Serra do Clpo, km 132 ca. I53 km north of Belo Horizonte). 
Macbride photograph 361^9 is of the holotype of Lasiandra 
rigidula . the collection without ninnber; a duplicate (P) has the 
St. Hilaire number B^ 996 . 

Incidentally, I am exceedingly skeptical that T. aemula . 
T. valtheri Cogn., and T. adamantlnensis Brade can be distin- 
guished from one another; indeed, one Vauthier collection cited 
by Cogniaux as T. aemula ( Vauthier s.n . , P) comes from the type 
locality, Marianna (m. Gerais) of T. valtheri; at Paris I noted 
that Mexia 5T03 and 5T88 are good matches for the type collection 
of T. valtheri . Unfortxinately no detailed notes were taken at 
Munich on the holotype (Macbride photograph 63^7) of T. aemula . 


The only Don -annotated material seen is a specimen in the 
Fielding Herbarium at Oxford, also annotated by Joseph Hooker; 
the locality data are "Brazil" and "Liverpool "(?) , with no 
collector indicated. At Munich are two sheets of cultivated 
material ( Pre si Herb , s.n . and Hort . Monac. s.n . ). both showing 
somewhat more robust plants than the Oxford collection. A wild 
collection which is an excellent match for the Fielding Herbarium 
specimen is L. B. Snith 1532 (Soberbo-Guapy, Organ Mountains, 
Rio de Janeiro) .

Monochaetum meridense shows stamen dimorphism similar to 
that in M. magdalenense, but has smooth trlchomes, 5~Plinerved 
leaves, and sparsely strigulose hypanthia. Monochaetum 
laxifolium has barbellate pubescence, but much smaller leaf 
blades, sparsely strigulose hypanthia, eciliate sepals, and 
subisomorphic stamens which are all fertile. Monochaetum 
uberrimum Sandwith, the holotype of which (k) has been examined, 
differs frcxn M. magdalenense in the smooth hairs, smaller 5- 
plinerved leaves (but perhaps immature on the holotype), spej-sely 
strigulose hypanthia, relatively longer appendages on the large 
stamen connectives, and at least semifertile small stamens. 

118 PIIYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 2 

Directly involved with M. uberrimum are two recent Magdalena 
collections ( Romero Castaneda 85^, from San Sebastian de Rabago; 
Cuatrecasas & Romero Castaneda 2k'J06, from Cancurua), with 
smooth pubescence, large leaves, glabrous hypanthia, and semi- 
sterile anthers in the smaller stamens; further study seems 
stymied until topotypical collections of M. uherrimxan appear. 
For the present, the strongly rovighened pubescence of M. 
magdalenense distinguishes it from all other taxa with deciduous 
sepals treated by Gleason (and also M. gleasonianim Wurdack) 
except M. laxifoliian (Am. Jotir. Bot. 16: 519-522. I929).

Graff enrieda tamana has leaf blades which are basally

Triana has basally cordulate leaf blades and defined granulose- 
pinoid pubescence. From both species, G. uribei differs in the 
sparse simple pubescence on the lower leaf surfaces. Arcabuco 
evidently is a pocket of species endemic ity (see also Monochaetun

!I5ie holotype (k) is comparable with several recent Colomblfln

from Sao Paulo de 01iven9a, Amazonas, in bud) collections. The 
Brazilian material was mentioned by Gleason in the original 
description of M. filamentosa Gleason and indeed that species 
may well be only a minor variant of M. inaequalifolia with leaf 
blades 3 "Served and tapering to a narrowly rotund base. No 
floral differences are evident between the species, the ovaries 
of both being predominantly 3-celled despite Gleason 's descrip- 
tion (Bull. Torrey Club 65: 579- 1938). Itie Colombian collec- 
tions of M. inaequalifolia had earlier been cited by me under 
M. filamentosa (Rhodora 65: 19. I963). Another variant in this 
complex (with slightly larger flowers, more prominent external 
calyx teeth, and slightly different connective appendages on 
the large stamens, but foliage as in M. filamentosa ) has twice 
been collected in subandean Colombia X^^o Ortequaza, Caqueta, 
Cuatrecasas & Soderstrom 271^6 ; Solano, Putumayo, Little & Little

M. sprue ei Triana.

1968. "Shrub to 5 m; corolla white." 

Paratype (topotypical) : Mc Daniel IOT8O (fruiting), 
k Aug. 1968. 

Miconia decipiens. endemic to Colombia (Antioquia), has 
5-plinerTed leaf blades vith short (ca. 1 cm long) petioles, as 
well as glabrous ovary apices. Ihe general vegetative aspect 
and stamens of M. macdanielii are rather like those in M. 
stelligera Cogn. sens, lat., which has rather smaller leaf 
blades with sparser lower surface pubescence, a somewhat 
different inflorescence pattern, petals moderately stellulate- 
puberulous outside, and moderately stelliilate -puberulous ovary 
apices; also there is a different size distribution of vegeta- 
tive pubescence, even considering the variants earlier discussed 
by me (Phytologia 9: 4l7. 1964). Vegetatively, especially in 
leaf venulation (but not in reproductive features), M. dispar 
Benth. (with however denser foliar pubescence) resembles M. 
macdanielii . In the Flora of Peru, M. macdanielii woiild 
perhaps key to near M. zubenetana Macbride, which really is not 
closely related, having leaf blades essentially glabrous except 
for the very fine stellulate hairs on the primary veins beneath, 
smaller flowers, and basally prolonged anther connectives. The 
taxonomic importance of the glandular inflorescence hairs is 
perhaps minimal, such hairs being almost completely absent in

the fruiting paratype. 


Long considered endemic to Barro Colorado Island, Panama 
(a recent topotype "being Ebinger I98 ). M. shattuckii is now 
recorded for Colombia ( Haught ^T. from TurlDO, Antioquia, elev. 
200 m). Hae recent collections have provided floral details: 
hypanthium 2-2.3 nm long, sparsely puberulous vith pinoid hairs 
0.1-0.2 mm long; calyx ttibe O.5 nm long, the broadly ovate 
interior lobes 0.2 mm high, the minute external teeth infra- 
marginal; torus within sparsely glandulgir-puberulous; petals 
4.2-4.3 X 2.3 ram, obovate -oblong with rovinded apex, glabrous; 
stamens isomorphic, glabrous; filaments 3 nnn long; thecae I.9- 
2 X 0.6 X 0.5 nm, oblong, with a minute dorsally tipped pore; 
connective neither prolonged nor appendaged; stigma truncate, 
not expanded; style 5.3 X 0.4 nm, sparsely glandular -puberulous 
(the hairs ca. 0.2 ram long) at the base; ovary 5-celled, 3/4 
inferior, with a sparsely glandular -puberulous apex. The 
flexuous ca\iline hairs are sparsely barbel 1 ate and very rainutely 
and cad\icously gland -tipped. Obviously M. shattuckii should be 
placed in Sect. Amblyarrhena and in Cogniaux' Monograph would 
key to ca. species 36I-363, differing from all these in vegeta- 
tive and floral details. 


Miconia trichrona Macbride, Field Mus. Piibl. Bot. 4: 183. 


The type (Bonpland ex herb. Adri«i Jussieu, P) and isotype 
(P) of M. obscxxra. not annotated by Naudin, Triana, or Cogniaux, 
have been corapared with an isotype (US) of M. trichrona . 
Weberbauer 6309 (Cajamarca, Peru) and Maguire & Maguire 44362 
(Zamora, Ecuador) match the isotype of M. obscura. "Die species 
is very closely related to M. capitellata Cogn., which has 
sparsely barbellate (rather than essentially smooth) cauline 
pubescence, obtusely based plinerved (rather than ro\anded and 
basally nerved) leaf blades vith somewhat finer pubescence on 
the upper siirfaces, and larger flowers (anthers 2.1-2.3 an long, 
dry, rather than I.2-I.5 [-I.7] mm; p*tals 2-2.1 mm wide rather 
than 1,5-1.8 mm; stigma 1 mn diam., rather than O.5-O.7 mm). A 
good match for the type of M. capitellata (P) is Jameson s. n . 
(us). In both species, the style is loose -strigulose, the fila- 
ments glabrous or very sparsely glandular -puberuloxis on the 
adaxial side, and the ovary apex moderately setulose. The 
hierarchal resolutions of other parts of this complex, including 
M. aggreRata Gleason and M. hamata Cogn., are still pending. 
The species problem had been discussed in Mem. N. Y. Bot. Card.

122 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 2 

After considera'ble meandering throxigh the Isirge specimen 
welter in this complex, supplemented by examination of Bonpland's 
(p) and Don's (mA, OXf) type collections, I cannot see any real 
differences in the two taxa. As mentioned hy Williams, C. 
neglecta is intermediate between C. capitellata and C. dependens 
Don, but his key characters of inflorescence branching and 
under leaf pubescence do not obtain for the type collectiooB. 
For C. catiitellata in the Flora de Venezuela, only the typical 
variety, var. dependens (Don) Macbride, and var. leyelii Wurdack 
will be recognized. Among modern collections, the best matches 
(all us) for the types are: C. capitellata var. capitellata. 
Uribe 3727 . from Guaduas (old trail to Hwida, the type locality^ 
Cundinamarca, Colombia; C. neglecta. Buchtien 11^9 . ffepiri 
region, Bolivia; C. dependens . Tonduz~^56l. Boruca. Costa Rica 
and Prance. Rodrigues . Ramos, & Farias 8857. Mutumparana, 
Rondonia, Brazil. Some collections from over a wide geographic 
range have smaller flowers in very well branched inflorescences 
and perhaps will require further inf raspec if ic recognition. 
For the present, Naudin's comments (Ann. Sci. Nat. ser. 3 Bot. 
17: 317 • 1852) are echoable : "quod tamen posteris solvendum 
relinquimuB . " 

The location of the Pavon holotypes of the melastomes 
described by David Don remains problematic . At both the British 
Museum (Natural History) and Oxford (Fielding Herbarium) are 
specimens annotated with Don's binomials and "D. Don in Wern. 
Trans."; the minute handwriting is not that of David Don and has 
not been immediately identifiable (personal correspondence) by 
Mrs. Hortense Miller from her research on the Lambert Herbarium 
(Taxon 19: ^89-553. I970) . Thvis the current references to Don's 
type collections are to presvmied isotypes. Don's personal 
herbarium went to the Linnean Society in London but subsequently 
was purchased by von Martius (Lot 25^, Catal. Nat. Hist. Colls, 
sold by the Linnean Society through J. C. Stevens) on Nov. 10, 
1863. However, none of the critical melastome specimens were 
found at either Brussels or Munich during my European trip in 
1969-70, so perhaps Don did not incorporate such materials into 
his personal collection from his tenure as curator of the 
Lambert Herbarium. On one of the two Fielding Herbari\xm iso- 
types of Clidemia neglecta was penciled (by Mrs. Clokie?) 
"Herb. Prescott"; Mrs. Miller is inclined to believe (because 
of the date of Prescott 's death) that this sheet probably did 
not come originally from Don or LaTiibert. Investigation into 
the melastome facet of the Lambert -Don history is being 
continued by Mrs. Miller. 


Clidemia umbonata DC., Prodr. 3: I58. 1828. 

From the pubescence, well -developed interior calyx lobes 
and external teeth, non-prolonged anther connectives, and 
glandular -settilose ovary apices, the Martius type (m) of C. 
tmibonata seems to represent a form of C. strigillosa with lax 
fruiting inflorescences. The type collection is from Nogueira,

the Macbride photograph (6^39) being of another gathering. 
Some of the central Brazilian material cited by Cogniaux as 
C. iiTTihonatA refiLLly represents a dodecandrous relative of 
C.. bullosa DC. (sensu Wurdack); a phytogeographic aberrancy of 
this undescribed taxon has also been collected in Venezuela (El 
Paito, Carabobo, B. TrvLmio ^8^5 -Herb. Maracay) . Because of 
complications with C. biserrata DC. (the current Brazilian 
specimens, including collections cited by Cogniaux, shoving 
stamen ntmibers of IO-I5 and ovaxy apices sparsely glandular - 
setvilose as well as stellulate-puberulous) and C. btillosa 
(pleiostemtMious, with orary apices lacking glandular setulae), 
this taxon (including Braga lOhQ from Parana, Pohl 1172 from 
Minas Gerais, and Macedo l^hg from Goias in Brazil; Ro.jas 36^9 
and Krapoylckas . Cristobal . & Ahvimada 1^257 from Paraguay; 
Tru.lillo ^835. vide supra) has not been further evaluated. 


As already indicated, C. neglecta D. Don is part of the 
C. capitellata complex. However, the species treated by 
Cogniaux as C. "neglecta" is distinct and well typified by the 
MartixiB collection (m) of C. urceolata from Rio de Janeiro, 
Brazil. The Raddl collections (FI) cited (Mem. Mod. 20: 16I. 
1829) as Leandra strigillosa (Sw.) Raddi are actually C. 
virceolata. rather than (as cited by Cogniaux in synonymy) 
C. xmbonata DC. In typical form, the species is known from 
Honduras (Molina 328 . IOO96. 1^^133 ; Williams & Molina 23255 ; 
Meyer 9920 ). British Honduras ( Bartlett II3OO; Lundell 687O ; 

Hunt 210) . Panama (Ebinger h2k) , Cuba, Venezuela (Carabobo, 
Nueva Esparta, Bolfvar), Trinidad, Colombia, and most of 
southeastern Brazil. Upland Guayana Highland (Venezuela) and 
Santander (Colanbia) collections are aberrant (and probably 
InfraspecificEilly distinct), having upper leaf surfaces 
moderately stellulate-puberulous and very sparsely glandular - 
setulose, lower leaf surfaces and hypanthia very densely 
stellate -puberulous, and ovary apices very inconspicuously 
glandular -setulose. The species is distinguishable from the 
forms of C. capitellata with much-branched inflorescences by 
the inconspicuous subulate to narrowly oblong inflorescence 
bracteoles and denser glandvilar pubescence. 


For the Flora de Venezuela, Cogniaux' interpretation of 
C. pustulata is being followed, although I have seen no recent 
Brazilian (or other) collections exactly comparable to the 
holotype (m); Martius' specimen shows hypanthia very densely 
glandular-setulose (ca. 1 mm), external calyx teeth projecting 
ca. 1 mm, corolla spajrsely gland\il£ir -setulose (0.2-0. 3 mm) 
externally, stamens (perhaps malformed in the one flower 
examined) with connective barely (0.2-0. 3 mm) prolonged, euid 
5 -celled ovary 2/3 inferior and moderately glandular-setulose 
(0.5-0.6 nm) apically. The Cogniaux concept encompasses 
material from Costa Rica (Skutch kO^; Pittier IO56I. 12001 ).

only varietally distinct from C. urceolata. differing in the 
short even cauline and foliar pubescence and slightly smaller 
flowers with short external calyx teeth; decisive naming of 
specimens between the two taxa is often difficult. Both C. 
urceolata and C. pustulata have a yellow pigment (from the 
glandular hair tips?) often staining newsprint and herbarivmi 
sheets, a feature not seen in related species.

Gleason (Brittonia 1: l6j. 1932) treated both C. 
novemnervia and C. aff inis as synonyms of C . umbonata (vide 
supra sub £. strigillosa ); however both taxa are characterized 
by the stamen connectives prolonged O.7-I.2 mm (but not append- 
aged) and the ovary apices stellulate-puberulous but without 
prominent glandular setulae, thus differing from both C. 
strigillosa (Sw.) DC. and C. urceolata DC.-C. pustulata DC. 
[Die holotype of C. novemnervia (P) was collected by Ferreira 
in Brazil and is well matched by Schultes & Cabrera 1271^ 
(Soratama, r£o Apaporis, Amazonas-Vaupes, Colombia) . The 
typical variety is characterized by the essentially sessile 
flowers with the hypanthivmi ca. 3 mm long, the interior calyx 
lobes 1.2-2 mm long and the external teeth projecting I.3-2 mm, 
the ovary apex with an abrupt densely stellulate-puberulous 
collar 0.4-0.5 mm long; var. aff inis has the flowers usually on 
evident slender pedicels, the hypanthium ca. 2.5 ram long, the 
interior calyx lobes 0.4-0.7 mm long and the external teeth 
projecting O.3-O.8 ram, the conic ovary apex with a scarcely 
differentiated sparsely stellulate-puberulous collar 0.3 ram 
high. Some intermediates exist between the varieties, which 
however are generally well-marked. Cogniaujc' C. aff inis var. 
angustifolia does not merit recognition. The typical variety 
of £. novemnervia has a disjunct range: British Hondxiras, 
Colombia (Santander, Vaupes, Amazonas), Venezuela (Amazonas, 
Bolfvar), Brazil (Roraima, Amazonas, Rondonia). The Central 
American population (C. reticulata Gleason, Brittonia 3: 110. 
1939) (also including Nicaragua fide Williams, the Standley 
collection not seen by me) was treated in the Flora of 
Guatemala (see also Fieldiana Bot. 29: 56O. I963) as a synonym 
of C. strigillosa ; the latter is known to me from much of 
Central America (Guatemala, British Honduras, Honduras, 
Nicaragua, Panama).

and Peruvian (Killlp & Snith 29885. Loreto) collectlwiB agree 
with the MartluB collection from "Porto dos Miranhas, Rio Negro 
in regtone Japvirensi." Cognlaux thought that C. eplbaterlum DC. 
var. parvlfolia Cogn. might prove to be a distinct species 
rather than a foliar variant; however an Isotype (Spruce 22^9. 
NY) shows flowers exactly like those of Steyermeirk 75362 . 
Placement of this species in CI idem la is perhaps problematic 
and Oeseiea duckeana Hoehne is probably synonymous; similar 
petals also are found in Osseiea boliyienBla (Cogn.) Gleeison, 
as well as Leandra axlstlgera (Navid.) Cogn. Certainly Magulre 
23228. distributed as 0. duckeana. is conspecific with C. 
epibaterixm. the US sheet of this Kaieteur Plateau collection 
however having larger leaves and inflorescences than ujaual.

As previously alluded (Phytologla 19: 19^- 1969), the 
correct synonymy for the two Costa Rican species of Clldemla 
requires adjustment. I have since seen the holotypes of both 
Cognlaux' and Suessenguth' s species (Pittier 207 -BR and Kupper 
772 ^. respectively) and have confirmed that the reshuffling 
above cited is correct and not that suggested earlier (Fieldiana 
Bot. 29: 556. 1963). Also examined for C. globuliflora were 
two specimens of Pittier ^ (G-BOISS), which have the same 
locality and collection date as Pittier 207 and are probably 
the same gathering (see DC. Mon. Hian. J: 1192. I89I; Macbrlde

as C. naevula (Naud.) Triana sensu Cogniaux and Gleason 
(Brittonia 1: 165. 1932), having a dense cauline pubescence of 
only gland -tipped hairs less than 1 mm long. One syntype 
(Ferreira s. n .. P, Macbride photograph 363^7, cited by Naudin 
as collected by Bonpland) conforms to the Cogniaiix -Gleason 
criteria for C. naevula ; however, another syntype, Schomburgk 
4i/T2 (p), showing a Naudin dissection sketch, has the longer 
eglandular hairs characteristic of typical C. .japurensis . I 
doubt that typical C. .japxirensis was collected on the Rio Japura, 
the Martius specimen (despite the holotype label) probably 
being from the lowermost Amazon. 'Hie typical variety is known 
by majiy collections only from eastern Venezuela and Brazil 
(Para), var. heterobasis from Amazonian Colombia and Pern to 
British Guiana (also in Nicaragua and Costa Rica). A note on 
these complexities was published earlier in Mem. N. Y. Bot.

Examination of the holotype (Gay s. n . , P; Macbride photo- 
graph 36318) has shown Isince -oblong petals with a rounded apex 
and a single infra -apical setula O.5 mm long. In both vegeta- 
tive and reproductive features, the relations are with C. 
bernardii Wurdack and its allies (ihytologia I9: I96-I9T. 
1969) . Of these relatives, the closest seems to be C. 
piperifolia Gleason, the Peruvian species differing in the 
bulla setulae of the upper leaf surfaces 0.8-1 mm long (rather 
than 0.2 mm), the cauline and petiolar hairs ca. 1.8 mm long 
(rather than 0.6-1 mm), and the ovary apex glabrous (rather than 
moderately fine-setulose). As in Leandra aristigera (Naud.) 
Cogn., Gay's specimen surely did not come from "environs de 
Lima", but probably Depto. Cuzco. 


H. hispidula Cogn., Bot. Jahrb. 8: 30. 1887. 

Examination of the holotype (P) and isosyntypes (us) of 
both species revealed no differences, the slight leaf shape gap 
easily -bridged in recent Central American collections. Ihe 
typical element of the species ranges from Costa Rica and 
Panama to Colombia (Antioquia, El Valle, Cauca), collections 
from elsewhere in Colombia and Ecuador being at least sub- 
specifically distinct. Henriettella goudotiana Naud. is closely 
related to H. seemannii but differs in the more obvious stellate 
bases of the foliar hairs, shorter (aversiging 0.4-0.6 mm rather 
than ca. I.3 mm) simple tips of the stellate -based hypanthial 

1971 V/urdack, Certamen Melastoniataceis 127 

hairs, and shorter (ca. 2 mm long dry, rather than ca. 2.5 ram) 
anthers with broader (equalling the anther width) pores; the 
petals of both species are puberulent externally. Recent 
collections of H. goudotiana comparable with the holotype (P) 
and isotype ^FlT are Garcia -Beirriga 1170^ (Cvindinamarca) and 
Little 7^13 (Huila).

None of Ule's criteria for distinction are applicable, as 
may be seen in the ample series from both north and south of 
the Amazon (the latter chiefly collected by Irwin and his 
colleagues). Gleason had already published the synonymization 
of H. micrantha (Mem. N. Y. Bot. Gard. 8: 1^3. 1953). The 
species ranges from eastern Colombia (Jteta, Vichada) and 
Venezuela (Bolfvar, Amazonas) to Brazil (Roraima, Para, 
Maranhao, Goias, and Mato Grosso) . It is closely related to 
H. patrisiana (DC.) Naud. (which has calyx lobes strigulose 
within, shorter hypanthial pubescence, and rostrate anthers) 
and H. seemannii Navid. (with 3 -nerved rather than 5 -nerved leaf 
blades, generally less appreesed cauline pubescence, and rather 
persistent foliar hairs).

Ihe holotype of tfelastoma quinquenervia (BM; Bailey 
Hortorium photograph 5I92) is quite compatible with more recent 
collections of 0. diversifolia. a good match (except for the 
somewhat larger leaves) heing H. H. Smith k (Santa Marta, 
Colombia) . The Miller type shows upper leaf surf sice hairs 
rather sparse and ca. I.5 mm long, hypanthia furfuraceous "but 
not setulose, and calyx lohes with a few setulae. Ihe commonly 
applied binomial for this species, 0. diversifolia . is thus a 
synonym. Frran some herbarium notes of E. P. Killip, it seems 
perhaps doubtful that Clidemia cyanocarpa Benth. should be 
inclvided in the synonymy of 0. quinquenervia and that conpsirison 
is needed with C. purpurea D. Don (and probably C. haughtii 
Wurdack); however, the Barclay type has not been examined by me. 


B. sphaerica Gleason, Phytologia 3: 358. 195O. 

Ihe holotype (Triana ^110. BM) from Antioquia represents a 
yotuag sharply quadrate branchlet with intact peduncle; the 
separate young fruit in the packet show the large bracts (outer 
22 X 22 mm; inner 23 X 10 ram) and nearly truncate (the sepalar 
apiculums to 2 mm long) calyx limb. Most recent material does 
not show elongated internodes, the very young branchlet s being 
quadrate but becoming indistinctly quadrang\ilar with age. 
Evidently Lehmann 7223' (Macbride photograph I7297), distributed 
under an unpublished Cogniaux name, is also B. quadrangularis ; 

■XQjl Wurdack, Certamen Melastomataceis 129 

also there are several additional recent collecticmfl from 

Blakea quadrangularls vajB one of Triana's "lost" species, 
known to Cogniaxix and GleasoD only from the original descrip- 
tion. Triana's personal herharium of 8,000 specimens was sold 
hy his widow to the British ^fu8e^m (Natural History), the 
purchase for 2^0 povmds heing authorized on Feb. 26, I89I; thus 
Cogniaux appaj-ently never saw this collection. Through the 
courtesy of Mr. Marshall and Mr. Cannon, a xerox copy of the 
melastoines entered in Triana's herbarium hook was obtained. 
Triana evidently did not give field numbers to his specimens, 
but later arranged them in Endlic her -genus order and then 
assigned collection numbers; thus the Melastomataceae are in 
Endlicher genera 6169-626I, the specimens numbered 38^7 -4ll4 
(with 4099-4llU a postscript miscellany). Triana's notes also 
Include the species name, locality and elevation of collection, 
and nimiber of duplicates. Unfortunately the Endlicher n\imbers 
alone are often cited as Triana's collection numbers. Triana 
also numbered his collections within each genus, staxting with 
1; thus the collection number of Topobea subscaberula covild be 
cited as hO&A- or 6261.5 ; Cuatrecasas has done such citation 
from the Bogota set of Triana specimens. For the Melastomata- 
ceae, the London specimens of Triana's collections have been 
regarded by me as the holotypes for those species described by 
Triana from his own gatherings (but not necessarily for Triana 
species based on material of other collectors); many specimens 
not found in other herbaria (cOL, K, P, w) are in this set.

Of the described species of Topohea . T. brenesii Standi., 
T. cordata Gleason, and T. elliptic a Gleason (all from Central

Certainly T. mortoniana is not closely related to T. sessilifWi-fa- 
Triana, the holotype (BM) of -(rtiich has sharply quadrangular 
branches, lance-oblong leaves 4-6 cm wide with secondary nerves 
only 1 mm apart, and solitary (fide Triana) flowers on peduncles 
4-6 cm long with capitellate stigmas. Topobea setosa Triana 
has leaf blades of about the same shape as those of T. 
mortoniana . with secondeiry veins wide -spaced, but shows well- 
developed petioles, leaf blades discolorous-puberulous beneath, 
and much larger solitaxy or few -fasciculate flowers with stout - 
setose bracts and calyx lobes. C. V. Morton for a decade has 
amiably monitored and adjusted my descriptions, nomenclature, 
and bibliographic problems in neotropical research; two 
generations of tropical students have benefited from his own 
extensive publications and anonymous courtesy. Thus it is 
appropriate that a current botanist follow Standley's 193^ 
example (Clidemia mortoniana ) in the Melastomataceae.

"THE PLANT HUNTERS" - Being a History of the Horticultural Pio- 
neers, their Quests and their Discoveries from the Renais- 
sance to the Twentieth Century by Alice li. Coats, UOO pp., 
illus., McGraw-Hill Book Compare, New York, N. Y. IOO36. 
1970 (in U.SJi.; I969 in London by Studio Vista Ltd.). 

In the foreword Miss Coats describes the "average" horticul- 
tural collector as one well schooled and skilled in botany, 
gardening and some other sciences such as medicine, surveying, 
etc. "He had to be adaptable and able to get on Tdth natives, 
and his life often depended on his being a good shot and fisher- 
man. He had also to have great tenacity and endurance, the con- 
ditions of travel being often such that only curiosity, the 
greatest human motive-power next to love and hunger, could enable 
him to support them. It follows that the successfvil collectors 
were very remarkable men, and their lives and characters well 
worth recording." And they are recorded welll 

This fascinating book describes these collectors, their col- 
lections and their itineraries in chronological order in each of 
different areas of the globe in the order in which they were ex- 
plored — the Mediterranean and Hear East, northern Europe, Asia, 
the Antipodes, Africa, North America and finally South America. 
It is almost unfair to single out a few of these hunters for 
special mention, as, for instance, Forsyth who went disguised as an 
Oriental in China, Wilson who did not do so but always had a sedan 
chair toted as an essential for prestige even if dismantled, and

ding the printed introductory pages, the book is produced by a 
photo-offset process which permits more prompt publication. Even 
an useful index is included, although with the "F" references out 
of place. All the papers are in English which is often expressed 
awkwardly and too often misspelled, as, for instance, indepen- 
dence on p. xii, aging on p. 27, apparent on p. lliT, attended on 
p. 289, etc. A careful proof-reading was obviously not done. 
Some diagrams are far from helpful; several electron micrographs 
in different articles are quite well reproduced and valuable as 
new material. 

Besides an introduction and a concluding remarks paper by 
Brachet there are 16 papers that deal with the nucleo-cytoplasmic 
relationships in growth and differentiation, biochemistry, ultra- 
structures, circadian clocks, light and radiation effects, photo- 
synthesis^ and autonomy of mitochondria and of chloroplasts as 
carried on by the fascinating umbrella-shaped giant chlorophyte 
growing in shallow warm coastal waters . 

This work will surely have appeal to almost all biologists, 
biology students and biology teachers on all levels . 

"A MANUAL OF PLANT NAMES" by C. Chicheley Plowden, 260 pp., il- 
lus. Philosophical Library, New York, N. Y. 10016. 1970. 

This book succeeds in its well known horticulturist-writer's 
aim of collating in handbook size a treasure-house of infonna- 
tion for gardeners, horticulturists, botanists and plantsmen. 

After an introduction to the history of the naming of plants 
and to the nature of the Botanical Code, there are introductory 
explanations to each of the following: generic and specific 
names with translations from the Latin, common names of horticul- 
tural and other economic plants ';rith botanical equivalents, bo- 
tanical terms defined, illustrated flower and leaf gross struc- 
ture, and the "plant system" with notes on families and genera of 
special importance or interest. At the end there is an index of 
botanical and common family names. 

On p. 2U7 the Verbenaceae is limited to 65 genera and 7^0 spe- 
cies, when actually in its most restricted sense it contains 7li 
genera and about 3U31 valid species and scientifically named sub- 
specific taxa. Tectona, a genus of considerable economic impor- 
tance, is not mentioned. Clerodendrxmi is correctly spelled on 
this page, but not so on p. Ul. 

"PLANT PATHOLOGY" by George N. Agrios, xiv & 629 pp., illus.. 

Academic Press, New York, N. Y. 10003 & London. I969. |lU. 

This is the best textbook in this field that I have perused: 
best because of its careful and readily comprehensible explana- 
tions of scientific principles involved in all of the host- 
parasite or pathogenic plant-environment situations, best beoause 
of many illustrations of high educational value. 

1971 Moldenke, Book reviews 133 

The author's preface describes well the contents of this text: 
"The first part of the book deals with general considerations of 
disease, the disease cycle, parasitism and pathogenicity, and the 
variability in pathogens. This is followed by a presentation of 
the mechanisms by irtiich pathogens cause disease and the mechan- 
isms by which plants resist disease. Considerable space is devo- 
ted to a biochemical discussion of the effects of pathogen- 
produced enzymes, toxins, growth regulators, and polysaccharides 
on the structural organization and on the basic physiological 
processes of photosynthesis, translocation, and respiration, as 
well as to a biochemical discussion of the defense mechanisms of 
the plant. Finally, discussions are included on the genetics of 
host-parasite interaction, effects of envirorinent on disease de- 
velopment and control. 

"The second part of the book deals with the infectious diseases 
caused by fungi, bacteria, parasitic higher plants, viruses, and 
neipatodes and with the noninfectious diseases caused by environ- 
mental factors. The diseases cavised by each type of pathogen are 
discxissed comprehensively as a group ajid are subsequently discussed 
individually in detail. Diagrams of cycles for each disease are 
included to help the student create visual images for the better 
and longer-lasting understajiding of the disease." 

Perhaps many interested readers, students, teachers and 
scholars from the broader fields of botany and biology are not a- 
ware of how common a phenomenon parasitism of cultivated crops is . 
"In North America, for example, some 8,000 species of fungi cause 
approximately 80,000 diseases, and at least 180 species of bac- 
teria, more than 500 different viruses, and over 500 species of 
nematodes attack crops." 

The print makes reading facile even though the letters in 
"haustorium" are jumbled on p. 591 but correctly given in the text 
and index. 

Selected bibliographies accompany the chapters. 

Glossary definitions should have been limited to such terms 
"as used in this text" because terms like "spicule", "ostiole", 
etc. have additional biidogical meanings.

Most of the papers are in English; summaries are given in an- 
other language. Each author provides a bibliography, but lamen- 
tably there is no general index. 

The modem work on the nature of the chemo-electro-physiologi- 
oral and behavioral mechanisms used by phytophagous insects to 
recognize secondary substances and the nutrients in their host 
plants is particularly well developed and needed. 

This book will be important not only for entomologists, but al- 
so for ecologists, botanists, certain ethologists, certain physio- 
logists and biology students. 

The print is clear and easily readable. On p. 735 the specific 
epithet gativus is misspelled. 

"PRINCIPLES OF SCIENTIFIC BOTAIW or Botany as an Inductive Science 
by Mathias Jacob Schleiden. translated by Edwin Lankester, 
facsimile of the London I8u9 edition, xxxv, viii t 6l6 pp., 
illus., The Sources of Science, no. fiO, Johnson Reprint Cor- 
poration, New York, N. Y. 10003. 1969- $27.^0. 

This book has been and remains an important influential "land 
mark" in the development of botany. Therefore it is good, in- 
deed, to have it available again for school, iiniversity and per- 
sonal libraries, even if at a fantastically high price. It is an 
abbreviation of the important "Ginindzuge der wissenschaftlichen 
Botanik" . 

The work is definitely enhanced by an analytical introduction 
by Dr. Jacob Lorch of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He gives 
biographic material concerning this brilliant and often offensively 
egotistical author, as well as appraisals of the famous flower 
embryo studies, of the botanical end of the cell theory, and of 
the epoch-making "Grundzuge" made so by "the novel emphasis, as 
well as the fluent and very readable language which exuded a tru- 
ly contaminating enthusiasm for the scientia amabilis His 

profound influence on botanical research as well as on the teach- 
ing of botany is felt to this day, when studies of the cell enjoy 
a new peak of interest which was inaugurated by Schleiden, with 
rare insight, more than 120 years ago." 

Unlike texts of today, the same illustrations are repeated 
for different illustrative needs.

What a beautiful, interesting and valuable book I It is par- 
ticularly pertinent because of today's growing interest in the 
natixre and preservation of our ecosphere. It is the work of two 
"seasoned" biologist-naturalists who have written often and well. 
It is embellished by 208 exquisite illustrations, 82 in full 
color, the work of many well known nature photographers including

the authors themselves . 

After a description -of our dynamic earth, its evolution and of. 
its mobile diversified life, the authors give living portraits of 
the main biogeographical areas searching for historical patterns 
that have been building for at least 300 million years. So much 
material is presented about so many different living creatures 
without producing the feeling of cramming but needing the not 
quite ccmplete index of plants and animals with over 1600 entries. 
The last chapter entitled "The Spread of the Cultured Primate" is 
an impressive appraisal of man's effect upon his environment. 

There is no bibliography.probably because the book is directed 
to general readership and because if complete it would have to be 
immense . 

The Chanticleer Press is to be congratxilated upon producing 
this excellent work. Even so a few tiny errors slipped through, 
as, for instance, the misspelling of Spidendrxm on p. 79 and the 
use of "most unique" on p. 167.

loch, 2nd edition, ix fi: U91 pp., Appleton-Century-Crofts, 
Inc., New York, N. Y. 10016. I967. $3.95, paperback. 

The intention of the editor to offer enrichment, more detailed 
explanations and inspirational reading to replace some stultify- 
ing laboratory exercises is admirable, but the goal is ac^deved 
with about only a ha]_f of the selections. Llany are just "text 
book" or insignificant. The excerpts from the following authors 
particularly' pleased this reviewer: Darwin, Percival, litis, 
Beadle, Dobzhansky, Becker, Hardin, and Hamburgh. 

Several words were carelessly misspelled in the text, as lu- 
ciferin on p. 51, avcirage on p. 69, photosynthesis on p. 87, 
known on p. Ii4.3, schistosomiasis on p. 210, experimental, on p. 
291, and Cretaceous on p. U36.

This is a very attractive and valuable start to what is hoped 
will become a complete survey of the island. Herein 72 genera in

This very carefully prepared text is planned for a beginning 
course in plant pathology by sm author- teacher of considerable re- 
nown, especiatlly in the British Isles. The chapters cover the 
following topics: concepts of plant pathology, damping-off and 
seedling blights, root and foot rots, wilts, downy and powdery 
mildews, rusts, smuts, blight, anthracnose, leaf spots and cvirl, 
witches' broom and club-root, galls, cankers and scab, mosaics 
and yellows, postharvest diseases, disease assessment, and 
disease control methods . The work is well illustrated, well ex- 
plained and well documented with literature references . 

This book will inevitably be compared with the new Agrios' 
text (and vice versa) produced in the United States. Each is 
highly meritorious, with the Agrios' text having greater empha- 
sis on biological principles and having more attractive fornat 
and reading style.

iince its establishment by Linnaeus in the opecies 
Plantarum 1:212 1753> Genera Plantarum, 5th ed. 101. 
17Sl\., the genus Cynanchum has been variously defined. 
Linnaeus included v/i thin it five species, of v/hich two, 
i.e. C. acutum and the apparently conspecific C. monspel - 
iacum , have been retained in Cynanchum by all subsequent 
authors; two, i.e. C. suberosum and G . h i r turn , have been 
transferred to Gonolobus and one, i.e. C. erectum , to 
Marsdenia . Cynanchum acutum, a European species, can 
thus be reasonably accepted as the lectotype and was so 
designated by Britton and Brown, Illustr. PI. N.U.S. 
2nd ed, 35 36* 1913 and by Hitchcock and Green in Nom, 
Prop. Brit. Bot. I36. 1929. In 19i|l, when surveying 
the North American genera of Asclepiadaceae , V/oodson in 
Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 28: 205-215. 19i4.1 redefined 
Cynanchiim so as to include in it many groups which on 
mostly rather subtle differences had hitherto been 
maintained as separate genera, among them Ampelamus , 
Decastelma , Mellichampia , Metalepis, Rouliniella , 
Tainionema and Tylodontia . The last general survey of 
the West Indian species of this group was by Schlechter 
in Urban' 3 Symbolae Antillanae 1: 236-290. l899. 
'v^oodson's view of generic delimitation here being 
now generally accepted, it seems desirable to publish a 
list of the Jamaican species to be included in volvime 6 
of Pawcett and Rendle's Plora of Jamaica.

In 1811 appeared the second edition of William Townsend Alton's 
••Hortus Kewensis; or, A Catalogue of The Plants Cultivated in The 
Royal Botanic Garden at Kew." Alton, as the title page mentions, 
was "GARDENER TO HIS MAJESTY." On page 323 he describes, as new, 
Rumex giganteus , calling it "Tall Dock," He adds that it was na- 
tive "of the Sandwich Islands. Mr. David Nelson ." Furthermore, 
the next line states that it had been introduced in "1796, by Ar- 
chibald Menzies, Esq." 

David Nelson was Captain James Cook's botanist, while Archi- 
bald Menzies was Captain George Vancouver's. Automatically, with- 
out much thought, we would have considered a Nelson sheet deposited 
at the British Museum (Natural History) as the lectotype for the 
species s.s. We maintain, however, that the lectotype should be a 
sheet at""Kew labelled "R. giganteus Ait. H. Kew. Rumex ^0 feet 
high. Climber, Sandwich Isles, A.M., C68." The initials evidently 
refer to Archibald Menzies. As Alton was listing and describing 
the plants growing in the gardens of Kew, he evidently grew the 
giant Rumex from seed introduced by Menzies about fifteen years 
before the catalogue went to press. 

According to Skottsberg in Acta Horti Gotob, 2:225. 1926, speci- 
men C68 "has leaves with margin and veins pilose, and so is the 

In conclusion, after receiving bibliographic and herbarium aid 
from Messrs, Peter Green, Edgar Milne -Redhead, John F. Reed, Georg 
M. Schultze and William T. Steam, we believe at least two main 
taxa of Rumex giganteus grew (and still survive) in the rainforest 
mauka of the Kealakekua area. Island of Hawaii, a rainforest that 
has retreated inland during the past 200 years' attack by Caucasian 
and Oriental animal and plant invaders 1

the less rare of the two, in the rainforest from Kulani around the 
southwestern slope of Mauna Loa to Hualalai. If the historical Nel-

Local Range I At present we know this species complex is native to 
Hawaii, where it is common on the ash and aa flows from about Kilau- 
ea and Kilauea Iki Craters through th e aalii , ohia lehua and ukiuki 
pahoehoe flows of the Kau Desert up the Southwest Rift Zone of Mauna 
Loa and thence northward into Kona until stopped by forests. It 
grows from about 2,000 to 7,000 feet elevation. It is strictly a 

1971 Degener, Rumex of Hawaii 11*3 

pioneer, springing up like a weed in bulldozed eta lava. The roots of 
the seedling apparently rush during the rainy season to reach moist 
depths for the plant's establishment before advent of the dry sea- 
son. This common erect xerophyte has been mistaken for the gigantic 
liana R. giganteus with loose, brilliantly red inflorescence first 
collected by Nelson, presumably mauka of Kealakekua in the rain- 
forest. After growing the erect shrub (like Degeners & Piccos 
32,il53) and the liana (Deg. & Deg. 32,^3» Degeners & Piccos 32,^56) 
next to each other for several years at 3,800 feet elevation in our 
Volcano, Hawaii, garden and noting that both taxa retained their spe- 
cific characters over several years, we confidently consider R. 
skottsbergii specifically distinct. In addition to the Island of 
Hawaii, we suspect this species in several inferior taxa, to be on 
Maui and Nihoa as explained belowo 

"Rumex of Hawaii" concentrates on the genus as it occurs on the 
"Big Island." We here add some of our observations of, and surmises 
about, Rumex on the smaller islands as wello 

Few readers realize that the Hawaiian Archipelago is close to 
2,000 miles long, extending from the northwestern Kure and Midway 
Islands via such reefs, shoals and islets as Hermes, Laysan and 
Necker to massive Maui and Hawaii o The northwestern islands, first 
formed, were once of considerable size and elevation, and have since 
been mostly peneplaned to ocean level. When the island primordia be- 
gan forming on the ocean floor is debatable. But an indication of 
how old such islands may be is shown by the find of fossils of Mio- 
cene Age - roughly 25,000,000 years ago - in core samples from Mid- 
way. These islands were certainly covered with jungle vegetation - 
now gone - when high enough to form and intercept rainclouds. The 
southeastern islands are generally younger, still of considerable 
sl?e and elevation, and clothed with endemics until present inter- 
ference by mano 

As the crow flies, the Island of Hawaii is less than thirty 
miles distant from the Island of Maui, separated by the 6,000 foot 
deep Alenuihaha Channel, The possibility that these two islands have 
ever been connected by a land bridge is extremely unlikely. Yet we 
find that on Maui occur at least two taxa resembling the R. gigante - 
us and R. skottsbergii complexes .The former is more or less repre- 
sented by two sheets, namely 1.) Forbes 1050M, "Keaenae QCeanae} Gap, 
Halehaku. Crater of Haleakala," East Maui, Aug. 3. 1919o It bears a 
typical diffuse inflorescence. The area, as we know personally, is a 
dense, rainy jungle. 2.) G.R. Ewart III & G.C. Munro 63. "W. Maui, 
Honokowai valley, Amalu branch, valley bottom, alt. 25OO ft. Dec. 21, 
1928." This bears a typical diffuse inflorescence. 

On the other hand, the members of the R. skottsbergii complex are 
1.) C.N. Forbes IO67M. Crater of Haleakala, Maui. Aug. 6, 1919. It 
bears a compact, erect inflorescence, 2.) James Henrickson 3878. 
Haleakala Crater. In cindery soil, base of sliding sands, July 15. 
1969, It has a compact inflorescence: but the plant is said to be a

seven foot high shrub, which is several feet taller than typical R. 
skottsberfiii as we know it in and about Kilauea on the Island of Ha- 
waii. It appears to have red flowers a feature, if true, being more 
typical of R. giganteus . 

Even without special adaptaions for flotation or for transport by 
animals, these native species of Rumex evidently traversed Alenuihaha 

Channel separating Hawaii and Maui, if they did not come from some 
third island such as Nihoa. 

Maui, Kahoolawe, Lanai and Molokai in past ages were once a single 
island, before that time and after having been variously separated by 
narrow channels. These now have an average depth of not more than 
about 600 feeto Here Rumex need not have crossed any water to reach, 
for instance, from Maui to Molokai from which latter island Hille- 
brand reported "R. giganteus." Hfe further states that the native name 
on Hawaii is pa wale and on Molokai, uhauhako « 

Uninhabited. Nihoa, ^4-00 to 5OO miles west of Maui where some taxa 
of R. skottsbergii grow, has 895 foot high Miller's Peak and 852 foot 
high Tanager Peak. These two are the opposite rims of a large eroded 
crater. What plants clothed this high land in ages past? Was one of 
them a Rumex ? In what we call the Marie C. Neal Herbarium of the Ber- 
nice Pauahi Museum are three sheets. They certainly belong, with 
their erect, compact, apparently green inflorescences, to the R. 
skottsbergii complex. Due to their condition, however, we are not pre- 
pared to state to which inferior taxon they may belong. They are 1.) 
E.L. Caum 71. Alt. 300. Height ±30 cm. "Shelves & holes in cliff n.w, 
near summit peak." June 18, 1923 2.) E. Christophersen. "Nihoa, 
cliff under Miller's Peak, N. side, el. 25O - 3OO meters." July 10, 
192^. 3.) D. Yen 1015 . "Devil's Slide, near Miller Peak. 6OO ft. alt. 
May 1969."* 

It is intriguing to speculate whether the Nihoa Rumex is not a mem- 
ber of a very small relict flora, representing the genus which gradu- 
ally disseminated eastward from the old, eroded islands to the new, 
now major, islands of the Hawaiian chain. 

This is not all. We must yet consider Rumex on the islands of Oahu 
and Kaxiai. Oahu is separated from Molokai by the 2,300 foot deep and 
30 mile wide Kaiwi Channel, and from Kauai by the 6,000 foot deep and 
80 mile wide Kaieie Waho Channel. Formerly, Oahu consisted of two sep- 
arate islands, the eastern one now dominated by the Koolau Range and 
the western one dominated by the Waianae Range. We know the Koolaus 
are more recent as well borings have shown that their lava flows over- 
lie those of the Waianaes. No one has ever reported a native Rumex 
from the Koolaus, but along the precipitous sunny summit cliffs, 
ledges and slopes of the Waianaes grows the 5-8 cm. tall R. al - 
bescens Hillebr. It is an herb, rather than a shrub, with leaves 
crisped and erose-denticulate. Skottsberg, perhaps depending too 
much on herbarium material, had some difficulty in distinguishing 
this species from Hawaii plants; while our observations in the field

Rumex skottsberRJl Deg. & Deg 

IhS PHTTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 3 

convince us of the correctness of "Hillebrand's findingo Though not 
known from the Koolau Range of Oahu, this taxon, perhaps in several 
varieties and forms, appears on the Island of Kauail It is signifi- 
cant that Skottsberg, mentioning Chromosome Numbers in Hawaiian 
Flowering Plants (Ark. f. Boto, Stockholm) 6^. 1953, lists 36 as 
the 2N for a Kauai plant and 5^ or 56 for plant 6,828 from Hawain . 

The more we become familiar with native taxa, the more do we real- 
ize how complicated the flora of the Hawaiian Islands is; Rumex is 
just one example. Although one of us has observed and collected the 
native taxa since 1922, we have solved just a few puzzles and drawn 
attention to many, many more. The new generation of botanists should 
concentrate on collecting more and better material, growing seeds 
under controlled conditions, making additional chromosome counts, and 
using newer and preciser methods unknown to workers of the past. The 
present fad to engage in a wealth of costly ecological experiments 
and studies without first untangling the taxonomy of our flora is 
placing the cart before the horse.

Uphof (1968) retains P, poeppigii Schau. as a distinct spe- 
cies (surely it deserves no more than varietal or form status'.) 
and accredits it to "Scheuer". He records the vernacular vari- 
ant name "capa blsinco" for the species and tells us that its wood 
is light-brown to medium-brown, often variegated, with fine 
straight to somewhat wavy grain, meditm to high luster, very 
hard, heavy, tough, and strong, it air-seasons rapidly, is easy 
to work, moderately resistant to diy-wood termites, fairly durable 
when in contact with the soil, and is reconmended for furniture, 
cabinet-malcing, turned articles, novelty items, interior paneling, 
rollers in coffee -hulling mills, carts, posts, poles, piling, and 
props . Of what he calls P. poeppigii he says "Tree . West Indies . 
Wood strong, palisander [^ Dalbergia ] -colored; used for navy con- 
struction" . Kribs (1968) records the additional vernacular names 
"f iddlewood" , "guayo prieto", "roble guayo", "capa de sabanna", 
"bois d' sortie", "chene calle bassie", and "capa wood" — the last 
being its commercial name . He describes the wood in detail as 
"Color light yellowish brown with darker brown streaks and satiny 
luster; appears waxy. Odor and taste not distinct. Hard and 
heavy, sp. gr. 0.95 (air dry); weight, 59 lbs. per cu. ft. Grain 
straight to wavy or roey. Texture fine. Easly to turn and carve

Arthur (1917) describes the fungus, Olivea petitiae Arth., 
while Garman (1915) describes Septoria petitiae Garman from this 
species . 

Stimson found the plant in pastures with extensive secondary 
growth and in dry scrub forests on motmtainsides, describing it 
as a small tree, with red fruit in Jxily, and called "capi 
bianco", growing to be 20 or 30 feet tall, with a stem diameter of 
6 inches at breast height. Little says that the fruits are red.

the species from the Barbados islands, but that there has been 
"no modern record of it" from there . Gillis 6Qk3 ''as taken from

Blair & Epps (I969) list this species as one of seven broirse 
species in Louisiana and state that it is "abundant in pine- 
hardwood stands iriiich have a relatively high canopy. It often 
dominates the loner cover in a forest clearing." Traverse de- 
scidbes the plant as a shrub, 2—3 m. tall, with a base trunk 
diameter of k cm., arching and sprawling, some weakly upright, 
the stems brittle, the bark "with small warts and tubercles", 
light-brown, the "berries" [drupes] green [when immature], grow- 
ing in open woods above a backswamp, in dark-brown much-cracked 
silty soil, in the dominant complex of Fraxinus-Gleditsia- 
Liqtddajdbar-Pinus taeda formation.

Bakhuizen van den Brink (1921) suggests that C_. lanata Zipp., 
of Timor, may be conspecific with what he calls "C_. cana ", but I 
place it in the synonymy of Cj. pedunculata R. Br. Sprengel 
(1825) regarded C_. tomentosa Willd. as a synonym of C_. cajia L., 
but I regard it as £_. kochiana Mak., not C_. nudiflora Hook. & 
Arn. as previously stated. 

Schumann & Lauterbach (I9OO) aver that £. candicans "ist im 
Sildasien verbreitet bis zu den Philippinen und Australien. — 
Burkill vennuthet, das C. euchlora Schauer mit ihr zusammen- 
fallt." Probably this binomial is a lapsiis calami for C. erio - 
clona Schau., but since it is here first published as a possible 
synonym of C_. candicans I am so regarding it — at least until I 
succeed in locating the original Burkill reference. 

The R. Parkinson s.n. [1901] and C_. T. White 898I, distributed 
as C^ candicans, are actually C_. pedunculata R, Br.

Mount Bavi, Sontoy Province, Tonkin, Indochina, on July 2, 19U0, 
and is deposited in the herbarium of the Arnold Arboretum at 
Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. Merrill (19U2) comments that "In 
Dr. Dop's key this falls with Gallicarpa arborea Roxb. as inter- 
preted by him, yet it differs from Ro:d)ui^h's species in so many 
striking characters, and for that matter all other Chinese and 
Indo-Ualaysian species known to me, that I am constrained to de- 
scribe it as new. The very dense indumentum on the branchlets, 
parts of the inflorescences, petioles, and on the midribs and 
lateral nerves on both surfaces of the leaves is made up of short 
crowded stellate hairs and much longer subplumose ones, the lat- 
ter often 3 ran. in length, and usually with very few, short, lat- 
eral branchlets, these lateral branchlets scarcely stellate in 
arrangement. The shorter stellate hairs on the paurenchyma on the 
lower surface by no means conceal the latter, the more or less 
scattered stellate hairs on other than the midrib and lateral 
nerves scarcely touching each other."

Recent collectors have found this plant growing in shrub thick- 
ets, secondary scrub, open hush coxmtry, often in red soil, on 
level land or strand, on slopes of grassy hillsides, along trails, 
near rivers, in the half-shade of rubber plantations, and at the 
edge of forests or thickets, at altitudes from sealevel to lliOO 
meters, flowering from October to August and fruiting from Novem- 
ber to September. Thawom refers to it as "scattex^d in ever- 
green jungles" in Thailand, while Phloenchit also avers that it 
is "not ccaranon in evergreen jungles" in that land. The Clemenoes 
tell xia that it is a "common shrub in forests or thickets" in

The C^ lanceolaria ascribed to "Hort." belongs in the synoryny 

of typical C. longifolla Lam. H. J. Lam (1911;, 1919) includes C, 
alblda Blime in the synonymy of his C_. cana var. sumatrana (Miq.) 
H. J. Lam, a taxon now known as C. candicans var. sumatrana (Miq.) 
Moldenke. Backer & Bakhuizen van den Brink (1965), however, re- 
gard C. albida Blume as a valid species, with £. blumei Zoll. & 
Moritzi and "C_. longifolia Auct. non Lamk." as synonyms. From 
this supposed synonymy and from their description it would appear 
that they are adopting this name for both what I regard as typi- 
cal C. longifolia Lam, and its f . floccosa Schau. Their con?>osite 
description reads as follows: "ffild-g rowing . Drupe white; cymes

Roxburgh (1820) describes Ids C_. lanceolaria as "Shrubby, 
haiiy. Leaves lanceolar, serrulate, acuminate. Panicles axil- 
lary, short-peduncled, sub-globular. Berries i»hlte. H. Koamoora, 
A pretty, shrubby species, with narrower leaves than any of the 
other species I have yet met in India, they taper most toward the 
base, are nearly smooth on the upper surface, but very hoary un- 
derneath j as are all the other tender parts. Flowers numerous, 
minute, purple. A native of the forests of Silhet, where it is in 
flower most part of the year." He describes " C. longifolia Linn, 
sp. pi. ed. Willd. i. 621", on the other hand, as "Shrubby with 
erect weak branches. Leaves rather long-petioled, broad-lanceo- 
late, semilate, smooth above, downy underneath. Panicles axil- 
lary, dichotomous, length of the pedicels. Berries white, A na- 
tive of Prince of Wales Island, where it blossoms in June, July 
and August." It would appear from his statement that the leaf- 
blades are "downy underneath" here also, that his plant was also 
f . floccosa rather than the typical £. longifolia Lam., although 
I woTild have ejqpected C, pedunculata R, Br. at that locality. 
The specimen on which this record is based should be re-examined. 
Watt (1889) claims that what he calls C. longifolia var. lanceo - 
laria is native to eastern Bengal, the Khasi Hills, Chittagong, 
and Burma. 

The statement by Bentham & Uueller (1870) that the C. longi- 
folia of Australia has its "corolla densely pubescent" causes me 
to wonder if f . floccosa may not also be involved here, although 
the statement in the same sentence that the leaves are "green on 
both sides" points to the typical form and I have thus far seen 
only specimens of the typical form from that continent. 

Bakhulzen van den Brink (1921) describes this form as "Forma ^ 
floccosa Schau, in DC. Prod. Syst. Nat. H (18U7) p. 61^5. — A 
stout shrub or small tree; branchlets, cymes, and petioles dense- 
ly floccose-hairy; leaves oblong or broadly lanceolate, distinct- 
ly serrulate-denticvilate, upper side sparsely stellate-hairy when 
adult, or glabrescent, except on the neirves, lower side rather 
densely floccosej cymes stout, globose, usually rather short- 
petioled; calyx densely and floccosely stellate-hairy; corolla 
purple or rose, densely woolly outside." 

The Clemens & Clemens 3029 & 21090 , Krukoff U053, Mondi 23, G. 
E. Perry |228, Toroes 161; . C_^ Wang 35683, and R. S^ Williams 2116, 
cited below, were previously regarded by me as representing typi- 
cal C^ longifolia and were so annotated by me in some herbaria. I 
feel now, however, that they are better placed in f . floccosa .

species , T^nift-p 1^336 and Lei Ilk also seem to exhibit intermedi- 
ate characters, sane specimens more dosaly approaching the typi" 
cal form, while others approach f . floccosa . 

The Hamel & Toroes 116$ , HoUrung 817 , Hoogland 3653 . Native 
Collector 273 , and D. D. Wood 78$ 1 cited below, are placed here 
tentatively. Seme specimens of these collections are also cited 
by me under typical £. longif olia . These specimens were mostly 
annotated by me a considerable number of years ago, before my 
present concepts of the delimitation of these taxa has crystal- 
lized. They need to be re-examined, 

H. J. Lam (192U) cites Schlechter I38I8 & 161;53 from North- 
eastern New Guinea and Peekel 62 from New Ireland. The second 
of the Schlechter collections, however, is cited by me as typical 
C. longif olia . 

Material of £, longifolia f . floccosa has been mis identified 
and distributed in herbaria under the names C_. angusta Schau., C. 
attenuatifolia Elm., C^ attenaifolia Elm,, £, longifolia Lam., C. 
longifolia var. subglabra Schau., and C. rabella Lindl. 

In all, U08 herbaiTLum specimens andll mounted photographs of 

C. longifolia f . floccosa have been examined by me.

This variety differs from the typical form of the species in 
having its petioles, leaf -venation, and inflorescence densely 
pubescent, the leaf-blades distinctly rhomboid-ovate, the margins 
very coarsely callose-seirrate except at the acuminate apex and 
long cuneate-acuminate base, and the calyx-rim 5-toothed. 

The type of the variety was collected by Thomas Horsf ield — 
in whose honor it is named — somewhere in Java and is deposited 
in the herbarium of the Botanical Garden at Kharkov State Univer- 
sity in Kharkov, Russia. 

Turczaninow's original description of this taxon is "C. ramis 
tetragonis simplicibus cum petiolis, nervis follorum, atque in- 
florescentia dense pubescentibus; foliis rhombeo-ovatis utrinque 
longe attenuatis, a medio ad apicem grosse et callose serratis, 
in utraque pagina pilis raris conspersis et resinoso-punctatis; 
cymis brevibus petioles parum excedentibus; calycis dentibus 5 
triangularibus majusculis, corollae tubo fere duplo brevioribus; 
staminibus h, pyrenis U apice barbatis, in statu maturo liberis. 
In Java legit Horsf ield. A duabus species, ad & 1 in prodrcmio 
Candollii relatas jam differt dentibus calycinis quinque." Lam 
(1919) describes it as "A shrub, branchlets, petioles and cymes 
densely hairy; branchlets tetragonous; leaves ovate-rhomboid, 
both sides long attenuate, upper half coarsely serrate, sparse- 
ly pubescent on both sides, glandular, densier on nerves; cymes 
small, as long as or somewhat longer than petioles; calyx 5- 
toothed; teeth deltoid, rather large; corolla-tube twice as long 
as the teeth of the calyx; stamens hi ovary hairy at the top. 
Distribution: Java. This very imperfectly described species, of 
which we did not see any specimen, seems to be somewhat doubtful, 
as regards the 5-toothed calyx, of which the teeth are large- 
deltoid." Bakhuizen van den Brink (1921) avers that "TJiis 
doubtful species perhaps is to be considered as an abnoimal fom 
of C_. longifolla Lam ^ floccosa Schau." 

Only two photographs of the type collection have been ex- 
amined by me.

This species was based by Dunn on Hongkong Herb. 3390 , col- 
lected in natural woods near Yenpinfe, Fukien, China, in 1905. 
Calllcarpa panduriformis is based on Chaffanjon 23U1 from Kwei- 
chow, China. For a time I considered this taxon to be synony- 
mous with C_. rubella var, hemsleyana Diels, but I now regard it 

16U PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 3 

as conspeclfic with £. longipes. Bakhuizen van den Brink (1921) 
regards Cj^ longipes as a synonym of C_, cuspidata Roxb., which, 
however, is actually Cj. pediinculata R. Br. The C_. cuspidata ac- 
credited to Hasskarl is C_. longifolia Lam., while that accredited 
to Bsdchuizen van den Brink is in part C_. rubella Lindl, and in 
part C_. longipes. 

Recent collectoi^ have found C. longipes growing in forests, 
mixed woods, and thickets, at altitudes of 700 to 820 meters, 
flowering in June and fruiting in December. They record the ver- 
nacular name '*sai ip un mat". The specific epithet is uppercased 
by some writei^, for no valid reason. The corolla is described 
as "pinkish" on Ching 3230 , "red" on Peng , Tak , & Kin 561, "red- 
dishHThite" on Sin 10020 , "light-purple" on Tsiang 10159, and 
"purple" on H. H. Chung 3370 . 

P'ei (1932y comments that "The Fukien plant, Chung 3370 , has 
coursely dentate leaves which are larger than those of the type 
and of Peng , Tak and Kin 561. The floral characteristics are the 
same in all the specimens cited. This species, as the leaf char- 
acters, concerned closely resembles Gallicarpa Dielsii P'ei dif- 
fereing from it by its long acimiinate calyx lobes and denser pub- 
escence on both sxirfaces of the leaves." He cites a Ching 3230 
from Anhwei and Chun 5689 & 5777 from Kwangtung, dovibtless depos- 
ited in the Arnold Arboretvm herbarium, and an isotype ( Hongkong 
Herb. 3390) in the same herbarium. He notes under what he calls 
C. dielsii that "It appears to me to be closely related to Calli- 
carpa longipes Dunn, the difference being the truncate calyx of 
Callicarpa Dielsii (L6vl.) P'ei irtiile that of C_. longipes Dunn, 
is toothed." We now regard his C. dielsii as a variety of C. 
irubella Lindl,, namely, C, rubella var. dielsii (L5veill6) Li. 

Dop (1932), in describing C. bracteata Dop, says "Cette es- 
pece est voisine du C. longifolia Lam. EUe s'en distingue 
ais&nent par les pSdoncules des cymes beaucoup plus longs, les 
bractfies foliac6es. La longueur du p6doncules la rapprocherait 
du Cj, longipes Dunn de Chine et de Hongkongj mais les feuilles 
longuement attenu6es, la calice a dents tres petites, I'eloign- 
ent nettement du C_. longipes i feuilles arrondies on cordSes a 
la base et a calice divis^ jusqu'au milieu." 

Chang (1951) cites Tse Hai 5U7 and nos. 95, 962, 3370 . 3927 , 
U729, 5689, 5777, |§8U, 7059 , 8666 , 12008 . 21185 , 21320 . 25l5l , 
25319, 31621 , & U3IO3 of collectors and/or herbaria for which he 
gives the names, unfortunately, only in Chinese characters. 

Material of C_. longipes has been misidentified and distributed 
in herbaria under the names C. formosana Rolfe, C. giraldiana 
Pamp., C. longifolia Lam., and C. rubella var, hemsleyana Diels. 

In all. Hi herbarium specimens aind 3 moimted photographs, in- 
cluding type material of both names involved, have been examined 
by me. 

C. V. Morton 

I have been working from time to time on Columnea in Panama and 
Costa Rica for many years. My treatment of the Costa Rican species 
was published in Standley's "Flora of Costa Rica" in 1938, but I hav( 
not published a key to the Panamanian species, which are even more 
numerous than the Costa Rican perhaps, although there are several 
Costa Rican species as yet undescribed. It seems that almost every 
new collection from virgin forests in Central America and Colombia 
yields undescribed species. When forests are cleared it appears 
that Columneas are completely exterminated and do not come back in 
secondary growth, which explains why several of the species have 
been found only once, and may never be found again. 

The division of Columnea into sections by Hanstein, Bentham and 
Hooker, and by Fritsch is not wholly satisfactory. The matter needs 
to be considered in depth. Very recently, William T. Stearn 
published a beautifully prepared and documented paper "The Jamaica 
Species of Columnea and Alloplectus (Gesneriaceae)" (Bull. Brit. 
Mus. Nat. Hist. 4 (5): 181-236, t. 14-21 . 1969) in which he pro- 
posed a new alignment of the species. Columnea is restricted to 
the section Columnea itself, in which pollination is by humming 
birds, so far as known, and which is distinguished morphologically 
by having the four anterior corolla lobes united into a galea and 
the posterior lobe narrower and spreading or deflexed. The stamens 
are exserted and the anthers are initially connate. The section 
Cryptocolumnea would obviously belong here also, although Stearn 
does not mention it, for it has exactly the same kind of corolla 
and stamens, and differs only in having the leaves of a pair 
strongly unequal. Stearn refers all the other species to Alloplectu! 
tentatively, but it does not discuss them in detail. 

This is a radical viewpoint, and it does not solve the problems 
by any means, for it leaves Alloplectus very heterogeneous indeed, 
including plants with the corollas erect in the calyx or horizontal, 
bilabiate or regular, contracted in the throat or not; the fruits 
fleshy berries or capsule-like; the disk composed of five glands 
or reduced to one. Most importantly, there is no overall resemblance 
between these " Alloplectus " species, such as ought to characterize 
a genus regardless of individual characters. Moreover, the method 
of pollination of most species of Alloplectus remains to be determin* 
and some may indeed be pollinated by humming birds. For these reasoi 
I am not following Stearn in his definitions. It may be remarked 
that the anthers offer some useful characters, particularly as 
regards the distinction between Alloplectus and Drymonia . 

The chromosome number is n = 9 in those Panamanian species so 
far investigated, namely C. consanguinea , C. hirta , C. nicaraguensis 
C. warscewicz iana , C. sanguinolenta , C. illepida , and C. moorei 


166 PHTTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 3 

(cf. Cytogenetic Studies in the Genus Columnea L.. by Lawrence 
Carl Sherk) (MS Thesis, Cornell University, 1960). It should be 
mentioned also that although I have described the stigmas of the 
various species as either stomatomorphic or bilobed the distinction 
is by no means always clear from dried material. This character 
needs to be studied by itself and in more detail, especially from 
fresh specimens. 

The type of Alloplectus Mart, is conserved as A. sparsif lorus 
Mart. That this may not be the best choice will be discussed in a 
future paper by Mr. Hans Wiehler, who has made some valuable contri- 
butions to our knowledge of the relationships of the genera of the 
Tribe Columneae (Cornell University Thesis, 1970, unpublished.)

This is one of the species that does not fit comfortably into either 
Alloplectus or Columnea . I do not believe that any Alloplectus 
species have five disk glands, but there are some Columneas that 
do, and consequently the closer alliance may be with Columnea , which 
is shown also by the erect, unspurred corollas. A species from 
Chiapas, still undescribed, appears allied.

TYPE: Cultivated in the Bailey Hortorium, Moore (BH, not seen). 

RANGE: Known only from the type and a specimen cultivated in 
Fantastic Gardens, South Miami, Florida, Feb. 25, 1954, R. G. Wilson . 

At the time I published on Trichantha in 1963 the native habitat 
of this species was unknown. It had been variously reported to be 
from Ecuador, from Tingo Maria, Peru, or from the Panama Canal Zone. 
Mr. Henry Butcher, of Chiriqui, Panama, has since written me that he 
was the original collector, and that the species is a native of the 
Chiriqui region of Panama. There is no reason to doubt this. A 
possibly allied species (still undescribed because of inadequate 
material) so far as flowers go has turned up in the same area.

tinued in the same careful vein, this excellent systematic study 
will prove exceedingly \iseful. Ever^hing about Texas is huge 
and so is this book. Illustrations are limited to county and 
vegetational state maps and a colored frontispiece of the state 
flower, the bluebonnet of Texas. Limitations set by the single 
volume size preclude aisy geographic distribution maps and floral 
drawings; the information is there in print. Space has been 
found for a good glossary, list of abbreviations including

of Botany 1U70 — 1670. by Agnes Arber, xxLv & 326 pp., illus., 
facsimile of the 1938 second edition, Hafner Publishing Co., 
Darien, Connecticut 06820 & New York, N. Y. 10022. 1970. 

The first edition of 1912 was a gem; the second edition of 26 
years later is a bigger and brighter gem. This offset copy 
makes possible the needed restocking of library shelves with a 
book which, like a gem, does not lose its value in aging. 

The history of the printed herbals got its start somehow "in 
the thoughts of ancient Greece .and it can be followed lin- 
eally to our own day." Throughout it has been shown "that botany- 
rose from being a mere handmaid of medicine to a position of com- 
parative independence." 

The book is very caref\illy indexed and has 131 clear and very 
interesting figures or plates. 

"SINCE SILENT SPRING" by Frank Graham, Jr., xvi & 333 pp., Hough-

Eight years have passed since Rachel Carson's carefully docu- 
mented stoiy of the effects of uncontrolled, nondegradable, 
general pesticide pollution on our environment was offered to the 
public and since the vitriolic attacks upon it made mainly by the 
agrico-chemical industries. Without the compelling readability 
of this talented author but with the fvill appreciation of her ef- 
forts and kindred ones of others this conservationist-author 
shows how Miss Carson has been completely vindicated, how snidely 
much of her opposition i^acted, what small progress has been made, 
and what a great deal more — even with our present knowledge —

Important appendices add much to this worthwUle book. The 
first includes an article from the Audubon's "Atlantic Naturalist" 
entitled "Safer Pesticides for Home and Gaurden" by Shirley A, 
Briggs. The second, by Harold G. Alford, gives the "Federal Reg- 
istration Requirements for Pesticide Products". The third, "In 
Kemoriam", tells of the Rachel Carson Tmst for the Living Envi- 
roiment in Washington, D. C, of the Rachel Carson Memorial Fund 
administered by the National Audubon Society, of how we may help 
through them, and of how Rachel Carson left legacies to the 
Sierra Club and to the Natxire Conservancy, establishing the 
Rachel Cairson Seacoast Fund for the preservation of natural 
areas along the New England coast. 

"THEORIES ON THE NATURE OF LIFE" by Giovanni Blandino, S. J., 

xiii & 37U pp., illus.. Philosophical Library, New Yoric, N, 
Y. 10016. 1969. $6.00. 

This book is the English translation by 0. C. Olsoufieff of 
the emended first Italian edition. In it the author expounds and 
evaluates the following theories: determinism and anti-casxialism, 
mechanism, vitalism, dialectical materialism, cybernetics, mnemo- 
nism, emergentism, holism and panpsychlsm. He presents these 
concepts mainly through quotations from the major proponents of 
each, such as Claude Bernard, Ludwig von Bertalanffy, Hans 
Dreisch, John S. Haldane, Julian S. Huxley, Jacques Loeb, Joseph 
Needham, Aleksandr I. Ceparin and George G. Simpson. 

After elaborating upon what he and/or biologists generally 
consider inadequacies and errors in these concepts, the author 
presents his own ideas. He accepts the principle of invariable- 
ness of probabilities and the principle of iupossibility , Ap- 
plied to the "average chance universe the formation of a highly 
ireguilar structure is possible, though greatly improbable. .. .and 
the realization of a living bo<fy is simply impossible, ... .the 
existence of every living body requires preferential laws: pre- 
ferential laws are the fundamental causes of life, [and] there- 
fore also of evolution." After elaborating upon the Harcfy- 
Weinberg law, he concludes that "probably the principal direc- 
tional factor of evolution has been the differential vitality or 
selection." Each is a different possible modality of the orien- 
ted causes . "My position is therefore essentially anti-causal- 
istic, not anti-selectionistic. In my opinion the 'formiila' of 
the causes of evolution is not chance and selection, but prefeiv 
ential laws and selection." 

English is probably not the "first" language of the transla-

problems taioght hs' "the author for non-biologists. It will well 
serve a wider audience of interested citizenry itho wish to be well 
infonned on this very important topic. 

The author fort.ifies with practical information amd reasoning 
his belief that optimum solutions to community pollution problems 
must be developed throTigh an integrated or systems approach. He 
considers food diseases, insecticides, zoonoses, sewage, water and 
air pollution, accidents and occupational hazards, noise, ionizing 
radiation, and chemical warfare, and finally the poli- 
tics of pollution,, He does not seem to be concerned especially 
with the problem of the numerically expanding human population. 

The author's intent "will have been achieved if the presenta- 
tion enables the i.ntelligent reader to evaluate these problems 
from a basis of knowledge and understanding, rather than of emo- 
tional fervor founded on ignorance, superstition, and prejudice." 
This reviewer wishes him mary readers for the sake of "our pre- 
carious habitat",

tions in combination with an endogenous mechanism of plant devel-

The following itans are only of minor signif i.cance : lithophytes 
are confused with lithophiles (p. 7), dependence is misspelled (p*

illus., American Elsevier Publishing Co., New York, N. T. 
10017. 1970. $7.50. 

This excellent highly readable work was first published by Ed- 
ward Arnold, Ltd., of London in 1967. It makes a fine companion 
volume to the author's "Lichen Handbook" of 1961, thus supplemen- 
ting this field guide with basic modem biological theory and in- 
formation. It belongs in the libraries of all kinds of biolo- 
gists, all schools and scientifically interested general readers. 

It covers the following topics: morphology of the thallus and 
its asconcrcete or basidiomycete reproductive structvires and vege- 
tative diaspores, physiology smd nutrition, symbiosis and synthe- 
sis, growth and longevity, succession in ecologically different 
conmunities, intra- and extra-cellular chemistry and biochemical 
systematics, classificatioij and taxonon^y, and finally economic 
importance. This thin book has 289 important bibliographic ref- 
erences, a useful index, and excellent photos and drawings. 

How does the author delimit lichens? "Lichens are undeniably 
more than a sum of their [fxingal and algal] parts, for licheni- 
zation is accompanied by structural modifications (e.g., thalloid 
exciple, soredia) new to the plant kingdom and physiological 
activities (production of lichen acids) different from those of 
either component.''

This work has been supported by NationeLL Science Foundation Grant 
GB-85I+8, "Monographic and Floriatic Studiea of the Diacomycetea . " 
The able technical assistance of Mrs. Patricia Fazio allowed these 
studies to be completed. Most of all I owe a very deep debt to my 
many students, present and past, whose unfailing and friendly help, 
criticism, and forbearance can never be repaid. Throughout much of 
the work, a motto coined by one of my students (Joanne K. Rogers, 
in litt.) has helped me through some of the more difficxilt times: 
"Ho name change today can eradicate the oonfuaion of the poet!"

This variety differs from the typical form of the species in 
having its pubescence on the petioles, leaf -blades, branches, pe- 
duncles, inflorescence-branches, pedicels, and calyx hirsute, e- 
longate, divergent at right angles to the base, and gland-tipped. 

The type of the variety was collected by S, K. Lau ( no. 3927 ) — 
in whose honor it is named — at Sai Hang Cheung, near Tung Lei 
village, Kiennan District, Kiangsi, China, between July 28 and 30, 
193U, and is deposited in the United States National Herbarium at 

In all, 3 herbarium specimens, including the type, have been 
examined by me .

Benguet, Luzon, Philippine Islands, in May of 190li, and was de- 
posited in the herbarium of the Bureau of Science at Manila, but 
is now destroyed. Collectors have found this species in bloom 
from February to June. A black fungus is on specimens of M, S, 
Clemens 5882. The Vanoverbergh 1376, distributed as £, longi- 
petiolata , is actually the type collection of its var, glabrescena

This variety differs from the typical form of the species in 
having its lower leaf-stirfaces decidedly silvery, but only very 
sparsely furfuraceous on the larger venation irtien mature. 

The type of the variety was collected hy Father Morice Frans 
Jules Pieter Maria Vanoverbergh ( no. 1376 ) in Bontoc Subprovince, 
Luzon, Philippine Islands, on June 30, I9II1, and is deposited in 
the herbaidum of the Botanisch Uuse\im at Uti*echt. This same col- 
lection is also the type of Merrill's C. longipetala , which I 
formerly (19U7) regarded as typical C_. longipe tiolata . The plant 
has been collected in anthesis so far only in June. Material has 
been misidentified and distributed in herbaria as £. angusta Schau. 
and as typical C_. longipetiolata Merr, 

In all, 6 herbarium specimens, including type material of both 
names involved, and 3 mounted photoglyphs have been examined by me,

Menall (1917) comnents that "The type of Hemsley's variety was 
from near Canton, and is the form intejrpreted by Hance and by Max- 
iraowicz as Callicarpa longifolia Lam. Lanarck's type was from 
Malacca, and Callicarpa longifolia Lam. is a species entirely dis- 
tinct from this Chinese form; Hemsley states that his var. longis- 
sima stands out very distinctly from all others (i.e., other forms 
of Callicarpa longifolia Lam.) and should perhaps be raised to be 
specific rank. It is distinguished from Lamarck's species by its 

212 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. U 

narrow, elongated, nearly glabrous, entire or but very minutely 
toothed leaves, its smaller flowers, and other characters. In 
some respects it approaches the Philippine Callicarpa dolichophyl- 
la Merr., from which it is distinguished by its vegetative char- 

The C. longifolia accredited to "Auct.", to Blume, to Linnaeiis, 
to Roxbtirgh, and to Vahl in the synonymy given above is £. longi- 
folia Lam., a valid species, that accredited to Die la is £. bodin- 
ieri var. giraldli (Hesse) Rehd., that accredited to Hooker is C. 
brevipes (Benth.) Hance, that accredited to "sensu Hamsl," is C. 
Japonica var. angustata Rehd., while that attributed to Hemsley 
is in part £, bodinieri var. giraldii and in part C_, japonica var, 
angustata . 

According to P'ei (1932) "Hemsley' s original description is as 
follows: 'Fere undique glabra mitidaque, foliis valde longatis 
anguste lanceolatis usc[ue 9 poll, longis, subtus pallidioribus 
parce avireo-pulveinilentis ceterum glabris, cymis distincte pedun- 
culatis, floribus minutis. — C. longifolia Hance in Ann, So. Nat,

Kwangtung: near Canton ( Hance eli956 l) Mus. Brit. Herb, Kew. 
Variable as £. longifolia is as limited here and in the "Flora of 
British India", the present form stands out very distinctly fron 
all the others and shovild perhaps be raised to specific rank,'" He 
cites Chang U5U; , Chung 21x71 & 2800 , Ging 7212 , 729U, & 15778 . and 
Po It20li9 from Fukien, McClure 3li5U from Kiangsi, Ching 7738 from 
Kwangsi, Chun 6922 from Kwangt\uig, Tsang 810 fi-om Hainan Island, 
and Herb. Canton Chr. Coll. 238 and E. D. Merrill 9986 from Honam 
Island. He says further " Callicarpa longis a ima (Hamsl.) Merr. has 
nearly glabrous leaves except for the long villose hairs along the 
veins on the upper surface, and a ring of long hairs at each node 
of the branchlets. It is related to Callicarpa longifolia Lam. 
and C. brevipes Hance differing from the former by its leaves being 
glabrous beneath, and pubescent above only along the veins; from 
the later by its attenuate leaf-base; and from both by its long 
narrow leaves." His C^ longis s ima f . subglabra is described by 
him as follows: "A typo differt foliis subglabris, ovato-lanceola- 
tis ad elliptico-lanceolatis, 12.5 to 20 cm. longis 3 to U.7 cm. 
latis, nodis band barbatis. Kwangtung: Lungtau Mt., near lu, 
Peng (To), Tak (Ts'ang) and Kin (Ts'ang) 296l, May 192U, 'Shrub h 
feet tall, flowers white and yellow'; same locality, Peng (To), 
Tak (Ts'ang) and Kiji (Ts'ang) 5571, June 192li, 'Flowers yellowish 
white'; North River, near Fungwanhu, Peng (To), TaJc (Ts'ang) and 
Kin (Ts'ang) 8261, July 1921;, 'Flowers white'. This differs from 
the type by its leaves being glabrous above and subglabrous be- 
neath. There is no ring of long hairs at the nodes of the branch- 
lets ." 

The type of £, taiwaniana was collected by Sigetaka Suzuki ( no, 
59U5) at Sankyaku and Suigen, Formosa, and is deppsited in the her- 

1971 Moldenke, Monograph of Calllcarpa ZL3 

barium of the National Taiwan University, 

Chang (1951) maintains £. longissima , C, longissljia f . subgla- 
bra , and C. taiwaniana as three distinct and valid taxa, althoiigh 
he seems not to be entirely certain about the last-named of these. 
For C. longissima in what he regards as its typical form he cites 
H. Green 8,n. and nos. 1|, 60, 61, lU3, 365, 810, 1785 , 1752 , 5826, 
^22, 6996, 7680, 7738, 9903, 99^2 , 13591 , I6309 , 22350 , 23063 . 
2^2, 271877^23^ 7 ^20U , 37772 , & 72815 of collectors and/or 
herbaria whose names, unfortunately, he gives only in Chinese 
characters. He compares it with C_. dolichophylla llerr. 

For irtiat he regards as £. longissima f . sub glabra Chang cites 
nos. 77I4 , 1801, U08U . 20015, 22628 . 2l;001 , 26827 , 29033 , 309U6 , 
55338, 72li65 , 8U765, & 81i99lt of collectors and/or herbaria whose 
names, again, he gives only in Chinese characters. 

Recent collectors have found C_. longissljoa growing on hillsides, 
wooded hillsides, low slopes, and dry land, in forests, wooded 
places, thickets, and dry places by the sides of houses, and at 
pondsides, at altitudes of 10 to 1600 meters, flowering from May 
to August and in October, and fruiting from September to March, 
Ching describes it as "common" in Kwangsij Lau found it to be 
"fairly conmon on dry steep slope in sandy soil of rocky forest" 
on Hainan Islandj and Tsang describes it as "fairly conmon in 
village commons in dry sandy soil and silt" in Kwangsi. E^ D, 
Merrill 9986 is said to be a topotype, 

Verfaacular names for the plant appear to be "bok wat tan", 
"fat fung shu", "long-leaved beauty-berry", and "taai tsin mi 
fung". The corolla is described as "red" on W, T. Tsang 22628 , 
"pink" on H. H. Chung 2800 and F. C. How 72815 , "purple" on R. C. 
Ching 7738, "green" on H^ H. Chung 2U77 , "irtiite and yellow" on 
Peng , Tak, & Kin 296, "yellowish-white" on Peng , Tak , & Kin 557 , 
and "white" on Peng , Tak , & Kin 826 , 

Calllcarpa longissima closely resembles £. brevipes f , serrula- 
ta P*el, but the latter has serrate or serrulate leaf -blades, 
whereas in C_. longissima the leaf -blades are entire or subentire. 
Some specimens (e,g,, R. £• Ching 6996 ) also greatly resemble the 
M, Ramos 2037 collection which is regarded by m© as representing 
C. dolichophylla Merr, Li (1963) cites H. H. Bartlett 6082, 
Nakahara s,n. , Sasaki s.n, , Suzuki 59U5 , and E. H. Wilson 9821 & 
10108 from Formosa. 

Material of this species has been misidentified and distribu- 
ted in herbaria as C_. brevipes (Benth.) Hance, C. longifolia Lam,, 
and Clerodendron sp. On the other hand, the ti^ H_. Bartlett 6082 , 
cited by Li and distributed as C_. longissima , is actually £, ran - 
daiensis Hayata. It is pi:x»bable that the other Formosan material 
cited by Li also represents that species. 

In all, 38 herbarixm specimens and one mounted photograph have 
been examined by me.

Fructiis 1 mm diametro piuictatus." 

The species is based on W. P^ Fang 17252 from Szechuan, depos-

This species is native from China southward into Nepal, Bhutan, 
India, Burma, and Hongkong, and east to New Guinea. It has been 
introduced in Reunion and Lladagascar and is also widely cultiva- 
ted elseirtiere. The corolla is described as "pink" on Pradham &. 
Ihapa Uli97 and T. A, Rao 7201 , "red" on Steward & Cheo 876 , "pur- 
ple" on A, Henry 9262 , "purplish-pink" on Winit 1152 , "blue" on 
Tsiang 6371 , "red and purple" on G_, W. Groff 10 , and "violet" on 
Lars en , Santlsuk , & Warncke 277U « As usual, one wonders if the 
color of the corolla really varies so much or if it is merely a 
matter of interpretation and definition of color by the collector. 

Collectors have found the species growing on hillsides, in 
sandy riverbeds, ricefielda, forests, deep forests, and valley 
forests, in thick jungles, bamboo shrubbery, thickets, open scrub, 
and waste places about villages, and on open slopes, from sealevel 
to 2000 meters altitude, flowering from May to October, cis well as 
from January to March, and fruiting from October to February and 
in August. Rao (1959; refers to the species as "a large herb" 
with the flowers "in dense spikes" [which is obviously an errorl] 
and cites Rao 7201 . Dakshini (1965) reports this plant as one of 
the major constituents of the "poor shrubbery layer", the "shrub 
story on slopes", and "in moist soil of swamps" in the Dehra Dun 
region of India, where he says that the species is common. Juan 
reports it as "rare" in Upper Burma and Ching calls it "rare" in 
Kwangsi. Panigrahi &; Joseph (1966) aver that it is abundant in 
thick evergreen forests in Nefa and cite their no. 16728 , while 
Thothathri and his associates (1966) report it as common near 
plantations in Bihar and cite Shetty 180 . 

The Banerjees (1968) also record C_. macrophyi 1 a from Bihar, 
while Gupta (1967) and Uniyal (I968) found it growing in Uttar Pra- 
desh. Yamazaki (I966) gives its overall distribution as "Himalaya 
(Kashmir to Assam), Bengal, Buima, Indo-China, and S. China". Ma- 
heshwari (1963) tells us that it is "Cultivated as a hedge plant in 
gardens" in the Delhi region and cites £. K. Maheshwari 218 . He 
describes the plant as "An erect shrub up to 3 m. tall. Bi*anches, 
lower surface of leaves and inflorescences densely stellate-wooUy. 
Leaves up to 22 x 7 cm,, ovate, elliptic or ovate-lanceolate , 
coarsely crenate-serrate. Flowers rose-colovired, crowded in dense, 
dichotomous cymes. Drupes white," flowering from June to Septem- 
ber. Gupta (1967) describes the corollas as "pink". Prain (1903) 
calls the plant "A shrub 3~8 feet high", growing "In all the pro- 
vinces" of Bengal. Uniyal (I968) calls it a "small drooping shrub 
with purple flowers growing conmonly in shade at 9OO m." He cites 
Uniyal 38 00 and notes that "a very small quantity is collected and

consumed locally, the seed-paste being used for mouth xilcers" in 
Uttar Pradesh. In the same state Puri (I960) tells us that C. 
■acrophylla grows in the third story in edaphic Gangetic tropical 
moist deciduous river rainforests in the sub-Himalayan tract iinder 
a canopy of Bombax malabaricum and Gmelina arborea , and also that 
it inhabits riverbeds and grows along streams in swamp-edaphic 
forests on clay beds with 100 inches of annual rainfall which goes 
underground and then oozes out, making small streams. These are 
mixed forests mainly consisting of Bischofia javanica . ^ also 
tells us that the species is considered to be good fodder in the 
states of Punjab, Pepsu, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Himalchal Pradesh, 
Jammu, and Kashmir in northern India. 

Because of the considerable misinterpretation of this species 
in the past, it is perhaps worthwhile to reproduce here the orig- 
inal description and certain other relevant descriptions. Vahl 
(179ii) first described this taxon as follows; " Callicarpa foliis 
lanceolato-ellipticis crenatis attenuatis, supra rugosis subtus 
ramisque tcmentoso-incanis . Tab. LIII. Habitat in India orien- 
tali Kbnig . 1} Rami obscure tetragoni, uti petioli & peduiiculi, 
tomento denso sublanato tecti, ut in Call, lanata . Folia petio- 
lata, opposita, spithamaea & ultra, saepe uncias tres lata, cre- 
nata, inferne versus integerrima, apice attenuata, basi obtusa,

simis minutis adspersa, subtus tomentosa, incana, tomento ten\iiore

nervos: huniora utrinque cana. Petiolus pollicaris. Paniculae 
axillares, dichotome-ramisissimae, oppositae, bipollicares ; ramis 
divaricatis. Pedunculus univeirsalis longitudine petiolorum. 
Bracteae ad ramificationes oppositae, lineares. Calyx minutus, 
quadridentatus , incanus. Corollae laciniae oblongo-subcuneatae, 
glabrae. Stamina & pisti^A flore longiora. Sub nomine Callicar- 
pae tomentosae misit Konigius, differt vero, ut ex descriptione 
patet, foliis lanceolato-ellipticis crenatis, nee ovatis integer- 
rimis denticulatisque." 

Roxburgh (1820) modified Vahl's description as follows: " C. 
macrophylla . Vahl. Symbol, iii. 13. t. 53* Shrubby, downy. 
Leaves opposite, ovate-lanceolate, serrulate, reticulate, hoary 
underneath. Corymbs axillary, dichotomous, rather longer than the 
petiols. Berry minute, white. Native of Silhet and Chittagong. 
A shrub from four to eight feet in length. Trunk scarcely any, 
but several, round, erect branches, covered with irtiite down. 
Leaves opposite, petioled, lanceolate, or oblong lanceolate, fine- 
pointed, finely serrate, wrinkled, above soft and a little downy, 
below covered with much whitish soft down, from six to nine inches 
long, and two or three broad. Stipules none. Petiols about an 
inch long, downy. Corymbs axillary, peduncled, two-forked nearly 
globular, downy, many times shorter than the leaves. — Peduncles 
as long as the petiols, round and downy. — Bractes lanceolate, 
one under each division of the coiTmb. — Flowers very numerous, 
small, rose-coloured. — Calyx woolly the foiir divisions distinct

and acute." The fruit, of course, is a drupe, not a berry, and 
the inflorescence is a cyme, not a corymb. 

Ro:dD\irgh's C. incana is described (1820) as follows by him: 
"C. incana R. Shrubby, young shoots hoaiy. Leaves lanceolate, 
obtusely serrulate, fine and entire-pointed, hoary underneath. 
Uashandari Asiat, Res, Iv, 233. Beng. Uuttura, Muttrunja. A 
stout shrub, with all the tender parts and the \inder surface of 
the leaves densely clothed with long, soft, white, stellate pubes- 
cence j cannon in the vicinity of Calcutta, where it is in flower 
and seed nearly the irtiole year. I long considered this to be 
Vahl's macrophylla , but on rearing what I also took for the same 
species from Silhet and Chittagong, in the Botanic Garden, I could 
plainly observe a striking difference when growing near each other, 
and as the Chittagong and Silhet sort agrees much better with 
Vahl's figure ajad description I mxist consider it to be his macro- 
phylla . In the Calcutta plant, which I now call incana , the leaves 
are never so broad in proportion to their length, more roxmd at 
the basej much more pointed, with the long taper-points entire; 
all the rest of the margin, except irtiat may be called the base, 
obtusely-serrulate. In macrophylla , the leaves are crenate, more, 
obtuse, and the margins cut to the very apex; the two are however' 
very nearly allied, though I think sufficiently distinct to auth- 
orize their being considered as different." Kuntze (I89I) re- 
duced this to varietal rank under C_, macrophylla , adthough he ac- 
credited the variety to Roxburgh, and describes it as "Folia an- 
gustiora (1: 3 — 5). Bengalen, Sikkim." In this disposition he 
may be correct although as yet I have been imable to separate the 
two forms satisfactoidly. 

L6veill5's original description (1911) of C. dxuinlana is "Habi- 
tu et aspectu af finis £. macrophyllae Vahl a quo differt: serra- 
tuiris foliorum tenuioribus; foliis supra viridibus nee rubescenti- 
bus, tcmento camdido nee cinereo aut flavido, antheris eglandulo-

Juin 1898 (D. S^guin. 2li3a ) ; Long-chan, juin I906, fleurs rouges 
( Jas. Esquirol , 869)." 

Bakhuizen van den Brink (1921) describes C_, macrophyT i q as fol- 
lows: "A shrub, 3 — 5 U. high; breinchlets, cymes, petioles densely 
mealy or woolly; leaves rather large, coriaceous, oblong or sub- 
lanceolate, base obtuse or rounded, often subcordate, apex rather

the base and the top, upper side, when adult, densely hairy, the 
stellate hairs often stubbily broken, lower side softly white or 
greyish tomentose; pairs of nerves 10 — 15; 10 — 35 c.M. long, 3 —

Gamble (1881), under the name G. cana L., describes C_. macro- 
phylla as "A shrub. Bark thin, grey-brown. Wood white, soft. 
Annvial idngs marked by a line of closer pores. Pores moderate- 
sized, sometimes subdivided. Medxillary rays moderately broad, the 
distance between them greater than the transverse dianeter of the 
pores. Bengal. Common in forests and along roadsides in the 
Terai and DiSars, extending probably southwsuxis to the Ganges. It 
has pretty pink flowers." 

Backer Sc Bakhuizen van den Brink (1965) describe C_. macrophyl- 
la from Java as follows: "Petiole 10~25 mm longj leaves oblong 
or lanceolate, from a cuneate, obtuse, rounded, or subcordate 
base, with an acuminate or tapering base, rather acute, crenate- 
serrate, at first on the upper surface densely covered with stel- 
late hairs, afterwards with very numerous stubble-like rests of 
these, 10 — 35 cm by 2 — 18 cm. Cymes on 1 — 2 cm long peduncles, 
densely stellate-hairy, 3 — 10 cm across; pedicels gland-dotted; 
calyx minutely denticulate, with numerous yellow, glandular dots, 
basally coarsely stellate-hairy, 1 — 1 1/2 mm long; corolla vio- 
let, outside thinly hairy or glabrous, with yellow glandular 
dots, 3 — h 1/2 mm high; stamens $—6 ram; drupe white. Shrub, 
3.00—5.00; I— HI; native to SE. Asia; in Java, 10—600, culti- 
vated as an ornamental." 

Champion & Hooker (1853) state that £, macrophylla is related 
to £. integeiTJ wa Chanqj., which is easily distingiiished by its 
broad entire leaves and dense golden tonentum. Rosenthal (1862) 
3a.j3 " Callicarpa Rheedil Kost. soil Rheedes Tondi-Teregam (IV .60) 
sein, wohin Dennstedt f ragweise Callicarpa macrophylla Vahl . . 
zieht." Lam (1919) says of his C. pedunculata var. glabriuscula 
"This variety has an affinity with C_. macrophylla , with which 
some authors confound the species, by the form of its leaves, es- 
pecially in regard to the base." 

A memorandum by C. E. C. Fischer and T. A. Sprague, preserved 
in the Britton Herbarium at the New York Botanical Garden, and 
dated August 18, 1931, states: "(1) The name Callicarpa Roxburghii 
was published hy Wallich, Cat. nb. 1833 (1828 — 29) as a new name 
for C. incana Roxb., non C_. cana L. It was effectively published 
since it is associable with the description of C, incana Roxb., 
but is an illegitimate name because it was superfluous. (2) Wal- 
pers. Rep. iv. 127 (l314i — U8) published a description of £. Rox- 
burghii apparently based on Wall. Cat. n. 1833, specimen . A much 
better description of Callicarpa Roxburghii Wall. Cat, n. 1833, 
specimen, was published by Schauer in DC. Prodr. xi. 61^0 (18U7). 

1971 Moldenke, Monograph of Callicarpa 223 

This mentions the setaceous calyx-lobes [and is now known as C. 
kochiana Mak.] . (3) C. B. Clarke (F, B. I. iv. 568) and Lam 
(Bull. Jard. Bot. B\iitenz. aer. 3, iii. 23) reduce C_. incana Roxb. 
to C_. macrophylla Vahl, apparently correctly. (U) Callicarpa 
Rojcburghii Wall. (1828 — 29) is accordingly a taxonomic synonym of 
C. macrophylla Vahl. (5) The specimen of Callicarpa Roxburghil 
Wall. Cat. n. 1833 described by Walpers (?) and Schauer belongs, 
however, to a different species, namely the South Chinese Calli - 
carpa included in Index Fl. Sin. ii. 255 (1890) as C_^ toroentosa 
Willd. It has the characteristic calyx-lobes of this South Chin- 
ese plant" [which is now kno-/m as C, kochiana IZak.] 

Kuntze (I89I) regarded C. roxburghii Wall, as distinct fron C. 
macrophylla and listed "C. tomentosa W. non L." as a synonym of C. 
roxburghii . This confusion was due to the situation explained by 
Fischer and Sprague in the above-quoted memorandum. Vfe regard C. 
tomentosa 7/illd . as a synonym of C . kochiana and C . tomentosa L . 
as a synonym of C_. tomentosa (L.) Murr. Sprengel (1828) regarded 
C. incana Roxb, as a vadid species, but in his 1825 work he placed 
it in the synonymy of what he called "C. lanata " ["C. tomentosa ] . 

It should perhaps be pointed out here that the C . tomentosa 
accredited to Thunberg in the synonyncr given above is a synonym 
of C_^ longifolia Lam., that accredited to Bakhuizen van den Brink 
ia In part C_. arborea Roxb. and in part C_. integerrima Champ., 
that accredited to Lamarck and to "L. ex Spreng," is C. candicans 
(Burm. f .) Hochr., that ascribed to "L, ex Moldenke" is C. erio- 
clona Schau., that ascribed to "Auct.", to Hooker & Arnott, to 
Willdenow, to "sensu auct, Japon,", to "sensu Matsum,", and to 
"senau Matsura. & Hayata" is C. kochiana Mak., while that accred- 
ited to Murray, to •♦L. ex Willd.", and to "(L.) Santapau" is the 
true C. tomentosa (L.) Murr. 

The C^ cana ascribed to Dalzell & Gibson is a synonym of C. 
tomentosa (L.) L'urr., that ascribed to Linnaeus, to Sprengel, and 
to Vahl is C^ candicans (Burm. f .) Hochr., and that ascribed to 
Wallich is in part C. longifolia Lam. and in part C. pedunculata 
R, Br. The £. incana (Turcz.) Moldenke, also ascribed to "(F.) 
Moldenke" by certain authors, is actually C, cubensis Urb. The 
C. ro3d)urghli ascribed to H. J. Lao, to Schauer, to "T^all. ex 
Schau.", to "Wall, ex Vfalp,", and to "sensu H. J. Lam" is C_. 
kochiana Mak. The C_. macrophylla var. sinensis C. B. Clarke is a 
synonym of C, nudiflora Kook. fit Am, 

Watt (18^) tells us that C. macrophylla is "A tall shrub of 
Northern and lias tern India, found as far north as HazAra, and as- 
cending the Himalaya to 6000 feet, and abundant in Bengal.... In 
Hazdra the heated leaves are applied to rheumatic joints (whence 
the name bi-pattra, from b4, rheumatism)," This Watt reference is 
cited by Prain (I963) as "E, D, c, 133" — 133 being a paragraph 
numberl Groff also tells us that the species is "used in the pre- 

22li PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. k 

paration of a medicine used for injuries" in Kwangsi, China. 
Datta (1965) states that the plant is found in village shrubberies 
in India; Prain (1903) asserts categorically that it is found "In 
all the provinces" of Bengal — presumably both Indian and Pakis- 
tani Bengal. BalakrLshnan (I96U) affirms that it grows natxirally 
from Kashmir to Assam in northern India and to Pegu in Bunna, as- 
cending to 2000 meters altitude, its white fruit rendering it 
quite distinct from £. arborea Roxb., with its purplish-black 
fruit, and from C. tocaentosa (L.) Mxirr. Maheshwari (I963) distin- 
guishes it from C. longifolia Lam. by pointing out that in C_. lon- 
gifolia the leaves are "thinly stellate-pubescentj corolla more or 
less pubescent outside", while in C_. macrophylla the leaves are 
"densely stellate-woolly beneath} corolla glabrous outside or with 
some hairs." 

Bojer (1837) records C_. macrophylla as cultivated in Mauritius 
and Humbert insists that the Madagascar record for the species is 
also based on cultivated material. It is therefore probable that 
the Reunion record given below is also from cultivated material, 
although the label of the specimen does not indicate this to be 
the case. I assume that the Brazilian record is also taken from 
cultivated material, even though, again, the label does not in- 
dicate such a fact. 

Dahlgren (I938), for some reason unknown to me, places this 
genus and species in the Lamiaceae l 

Common and vernacular names recorded for C_, macrophylla in- 
clude "bannu", "bd-pattra", "b ' a-pattra" , "bauna^, "budhi ghasit",

name "shiwEdi" is also applied to C_. arborea Roxb. 

Alleged references to this species in Baden Powell, "Pb. Pr. 
571", "Asiat. Res. 55: 233", and "Kanjilal For. Fl. 263" have not 
yet been verified by me. 

Panigrahi and his associates (I96U) record the species as com- 
mon in Orissaj Rao (I96U) records it from Uttar Pradesh; Stewart 
(1967) records it from Swat. Deb (I96I) cites Deb 15U from Mani- 
pur. Santapau, in a letter to me dated February 16, 19li8, says 
that this species "occurs in the Deccan, fide Clarke. The plant 
seems to be common in N. and E. India, «nly occasionally else- 
irtiere; I have seen no specimens from Bombay Presidency". Kita- 
mura (1959) cites his collections from Halchok, altitude 1500 
meters, July 31, 1953, and from Ar\ighat Bazar, altitude 621* me- 
ters, December 10, 1952, in Nepal, and gives the overall distri- 
bution of the species as "Himalaya, India, Burma, China: Yunnan, 
Szechuan, Kwangtung, Hainan; Siam, Indo-China, New-Guinea, Mas-

being much branched and having leaves which are much smaller, 
fuscous-woolly, obscurely stellate beneath, and ultimately glab- 
rate, according to Clarke (1885). 

The type of the variety was collected by William Griffith ( no.

that it "Differs a good deal in habit from C_. macrophylla , but 
connected by E. Nef)al specimens collected by Sir J. D. H.Cooker]*.

The type of this remarkable species vras collected by Maximo 
Ramos and Gregorio E. Edaflo [ Herb. Philip . Bur. Sci. 37563 ] in 
forests at an altitude of about 1200 meters on llount Masingit, in 
Kalinga Subprovince, Luzon, Philippine Islands, on February 17, 
1920, and was deposited in the herbarium of the Bureau of Science 
at Manila, but is now destroyed. The native vernacular name of 
"agnai" is recorded for the plant. 

Merrill (1922) says that "This species is remarkable for its 
greatly enlarged, densely fulvous-tomentose disk which surroxinds 
and nearly incloses the fruit, a character that is unknown to me 
for any other described species of the genus . It is further re- 
markable for its unusually large leaves which are eglandular and 
densely tomentose on the lower surface," Quisumbing & Merrill 

1971 Moldenke, Ponograph of Callicarpa 229 

(1928) comment that the species is appau-ently related to and very- 
similar to C. pachyclada Quisumb. & Merr. 

Callicarpa magnifolia is known to me only from the literatiire 
referred to above.

This species was based by King and Gamble on H. N. Ridley 2787 
from Selangor and on Perry 1005 and Maingay 1192 — in vrtiose honor 
it was named — from Malacca, as cotypes. These authors aay in 
their original description (1908) "In Kew Herbarium, Maingay 's 
specimen has been placed under C_. arborea , but the species differs 

in many respects. The venation of the leaves is very different, 
as is the tomentum of much smaller stellate hairs; the leaves are 
nearly blunt; the tube of the corolla much longer, and its lobes 
much shorter; smd we have no hesitation in describing it as a new 
species." In their key they distinguish the two species about as 
follows : 

1. Leaf-blades long-acuminate at the apex, the tomentum thick; 
cymes dense; corolla- tube only about .075 inch long, merely 

puberulous C_. arborea Roxb . 

la. Leaf-blades obtuse or very shortly acuminate at the apex, the 
tomentum thin; cymes spreading; corolla-tube .1 inch long, 

stellate-pubescent C. maingayi King & Gamble . 

Lam (1919) distinguishes the present taxon from £, subalbida 
Elm, as follows: 
1. Corolla densely stellate-hairy outside, the lobes pubescent 

trithin C . maingayi . 

la. Corolla glabrous outside, the lobes glabrous withinTT , 

C, subalbida . 
Ridley (1923) differentiates it from two closely related Malay- 
an species as follows: 

1, Leaf-blades densely tomentose beneath; corolla violet 

C. arborea . 

la . Leaf -blades thinly tomentose beneath; corolla greenish 

C, maingiyi . 

lb . Leaf -blades irtiite beneath with brown-scurfy veins 

C. furfuracea Ridl. 
He cites a Perry s.n. from Hulu Chembong and a Cant ley s.n, from 
Selangor, and says "Selangor, Sempang Track, Semangkok Pass; Ulu 
Gombak Road; Langat. Native names: Poko chulak; tuto putih. Use: 
wood for making fiddles." Other ccsnmon names recorded for the 
plant are "balek angin laut", "chulak", "hu khawi khao", "mendapor}' 
"tampang besi, "tulo", "tutok puteh", and "tutor". 

1971 Moldenke, Monograph of Callicarpa 231 

The species has been found scattered in evergreen jungles at 
100 meters altitude, flovrering in April, May, and November. The 
corollas are described as "white" on Bunkirxl 8^ and Singapore 
Field No. l605l and as "yellowish" on Snan 210 j Ridley calls them 
"greenish" . 

It is worth noting that Bakhuizen van den Brink (1921) regard- 
ed C. maingayl as a synonym of C_, tomentosa (L.) Murr., while 
Fletcher (1938) regarded C_. tomentosa var. typica Bakh. as a syn- 
onym of C_. maingayi . 

In all, 7 herbarium specimens of C_. maingayi and 2 mounted 
photographs have been examined by me.

calyxes densely stellate-plumose-pubescent, the indumentum almost 
obscuring the scattered shiny pale-yellow glands j bracts oblance- 
olate-spatulate, 6 — 8 mm. long; bractlets similar but much small- 
er; calyx somewhat infundibular, about 3 mm. long, its rim equal- 
ly ii-toothed or -lobed, the lobes short and acute; corolla white, 
6—7 mm. long, sparingly glandulose outside with small yellow 
shiny glands, the lobes It, subequal, oblong-ovate, 3 — 3.5 mm. 
long, broadly rounded at the apex, sparingly stellate-piibescent 
in lines and glandulose externally on the median portion; fila- 
ments 7 — 8 mm. long; anthers ovoid, about 1.2 ran. long, somevrtiat 
glandulose on the back; ovary ovoid, very densely covered with 
small shiny pale-yellow glands. 

The type of this species was collected by Richard Crittenden 
McGregor [ Philip. Bur. Sci. 19687] on Llount Polls, in Ifugao Sub- 
province, Luzon, Philippine Islands, and was deposited in the 
herbarivmi of the Bureau of Science at Manila, but is now destroy- 
ed. Merrill (1915) comments that the species is "Probably most 
closely allied to Gallicarpa subglandulosa Elm., but differing 
from that species in many charactei^. Gallicarpa megalantha is 
remarkable for its co^^)aratively large flowers which are indica- 
ted by the collector as being white, a color otherwise unknown or 
at least very rare in the genus, its long-peduncled cymes, and 
its dark-brown or dark grayish-brown indumentvmi." 

The species appears to be endemic to Luzon. Lam (1919) also 
avers that "Its affinity is with G. subglandulosa [now known as 
Geunsia pentandra (Roxb.) Merr,]; it has, however, leaves with 
an attenuate base, irtiilst C. subglandulosa has leaves with a 
somewhat rounded base." A common name recorded for it is 
"palayan" . It has been fo\ihd blooming in February and September, 
and firuiting in September, 

Bakhuizen van den Brink (1921) reduces the species to synonymy 
under what he calls G. pentandra var. typiea f . hexandra Bakh. 
[" Geunsia hexandra (Teijsm. & Binn.) Kooixi.] . MateirLal has been 
misidentified and distributed in herbaria under that name. In 
all, 5 herbarium specimens have been examined by me.

The type of this species was collected by Maximo Ramos ( Herb. 
Philip. Bur. Sci. 11078 ) on the island of Cebu, Philippine Islands, 
in March, 1912, and was deposited in the herbarium of the Philip- 
pine Bureau of Science at Manila, but is now destroyed. The co- 
rolla is described as "pink" on R. S_. Williams 2306 and as "yel- 
low" [probably an error] on Herb. Philip. Bur. Sci. Ui601 . E, D. 
Merrill 8115 has extra large leaf -blades . 

Merrill (1915) notes that "The species has been confused with 
Callicarpa caudata Maxim., and £, longifolia Lam,, and is mani- 
festly allied to the former, differing in its very different in- 
dumentum. It is apparently more closely allied to C, stenophylla 
Merr., than to C_. caudata , but is distinguished from the former by 
its broader leaves. Among the extra-Philippine forms it is ap- 
parently most closely allied to Callicarpa longifolia Lam., dif- 
fering in its indumentum, shape of its leaves, and in details of 
its flowers." He cites as typical material of £. merrillii the 
following collections: Basilan: DeVore & Hoover I4I, Hallier s.n. 
Mindanao: Mrs. Clemens s.n. [Camp Keithley] , F6nix s.n. [Herb. 
Philip. Bur. Sci. 15802], E. D. Merrill 8115, C. B. Robinson s.n. 
[Herb. Philip. Bur. Sci. 11802], R. S. Williams 2307 . Mindoro: E. 
D. MerriTT 5556 . Ticao: W, W. Clark s,n. [Herb. Philip. Forest 

Bur. 253I1]. 

In my opinion, the species is most closely related to C_. caudata 

Maxim. Lam (1919) agrees, saying "Its affinity is with C_. caudata, 
from which it differs, however, by the obtuse base of the leaves, 
and in some other points." Actually, the simple hairs on the lower 
leaf-surface, seen very plainly on Elmer 10375 aJ^d on Herb, Philip. 
Bur, Sci. 37388 , 38816 , & lUi601 , constitute the quickest and easi- 
est way to distinguish C. merrillii from C_. caudata. In the iatter 
species the pubescence is stellate everywhere, Callicarpa merril- 
lii — named in honor of Elmer Drew Merrill (1876—1956), who first 
recognized it — is also related to C. stenophylla Merr. and, more 

1971 lioldenke. Monograph of Calllcarpa 235 

distantly, to C. longifolia Lam, It has been found growing adong 
small brooks in forests at low altitudes, flowering from April to 
June and August to December, and fruiting in February, April, 
June, and August to December. Vernacular names recorded for it 
are "katonal", "palis", and "tigau". Bakhuizen van den Brink 
(1921) reduces it to synonymy under what he calls C. cuspidata 
Roxb. and cites the Ramos & Edaflo s.n. [Herb. Philip. Bur. Sci. 
UI46OI] collection. I regard C_. cuspidata Roxb. as cosjjecific 
with C. pedunculata R. Br. 

It should be noted here that the C. lancifolia of Millspaugh, 
referred to in the synonyny above, is a valid West Indian species, 
while that of Pavon and of Sess6 & Mocifio is £, ac\jminata H.B.K. 

Lam (1919) based his C. caudata var. simplic ipuberula on " Uer- 
rill 10375 " fron Dumaguete in the Cuemos Mountains on eastern 
Negros, Philippine Islands, collected in June, I9O8, but this is 
certainly an error in transcription for ^mft'^ 10375 • He describes 
the variety as "folia vix denticulata, subtus pilis simplicibus 
vestita", with yoxmg fruits in June. 

Material of C. merrillii has been misidentified and distributed

Shrub, 3 m, tallj tnuik 10 cm. in diameter; branchlets slender, 
round, stellately farinose or tomentosej leaves decussate-oppo- 
site; petioles k mm. long; leaf -blades chartaceous, ovate- 
lanceolate or lanceolate, 6 cm. long, 2 cm. wide, acutely acmin^ 
ate at the apex, serrate along the margins except near the base, 
acute at the base, more or less densely pubescent with simple 
hairs above, stellate-tomentose and glandulose beneath; secon- 
daries 6—8 pairs; inflorescence stellate- farinose or -tomentose^ 
the cymes small, 2 cm. long; peduncles 5—10 mm. long; calyx 1 — 
1.5 mm. long, somewhat stellate-pubescent and glandulose, its rim 
with k svibacute deltoid teeth; corolla white or violet-pink, y.vm, 
long, sparsely pubescent, with k lines of glands along the tube 
and on the lobes, the lobes 1 — 1.5 mm. long; stamens yellow, ex- 
serted, h — h»S mm. long; anthers ellipsoid, densely glandulose on 
both sides; style 5*5 nn. long; stigna capitate; ovary densely 
glandular on the upper half, glabrous on the lower half; frui ting- 
calyx and fruit not known. 

The type of this species was collected by Hugh Cuming ( no. 
1165 ) in the province of Albay, Luzon, Philippine Islands. This 
is the only collection cited by Vidal y Soler on page 13U of his 
work (1885), where he designated the binomial as "n. sp." On 
pages 187—188 he adds "Herb. Prop. l6la Prov. Abra". Lam (1919) 
cites a Cuming s.n. from Luzon, deposited as sheet ntanber 908. 
158 — 383 in the Rijksherbarivmi at Leiden, as well as a "Com. d, 
1. fl. for. d. Fil. no. I6UI, Abra". He also cites, with a 
question, a "Teysmann, H. Bog. no. 89U2" from Tanini, Timor, and 
notes "The doubtful specimen: Korthals in H. L.-B. sub no. 908. 
265 — 958, gives no locality". 

Bakhuizen van den Brink (1921) reduces this species to syno- 
nymy under what he calls C^j^ cuspidata Roxb. I regard Roxburgh's 
name as belonging in the synonymy of C. pedunculata R. Br, 

It is not at all certain that £, micrantha may not prove, after 
all, when type material is available for study, to be conspecific 
with some other taxon. The Ramos & Edafio s.n. [Herb, Philip. Bur. 
Sci. I;56lU], distributed as C, micrantha , matches perfectly the 
type collection of £. elegans Hayek and therefore is regarded by 
me as representing the latter species, irtiile Ramos & Edaflo 3.n, 
[Herb. Philip. Bur. Sci. h69$$] is C, foimosana f, angustata 
Moldenke. Callicarpa micrantha actually is a taxon known to me 
only from the literature listed above. It represents only one 
of the many problems that- still must be solved before a formal 
monograph of the genus, with a key to accepted taxa, can be pub-

Shrxib or ^tnaii tree, 2 — 5 m* "tail; stems to 5 cm. in diameter; 
branches slender, spreading in horizontal fashion, subterete or 
very obsoletely tetragonal, occasionally slightly flattened at 
the nodes, glabrous, with gray bark; branchlets very slender, te- 
rete, grayish-brown or dark-purple, densely furfuraceoiis-pubea- 
cent or short- tome ntose with sordid many-branched hairs; inter- 
nodes usually abbreviated, 1 — 3.5 cm. long, occasionally to 6.5 
cm. long; leaves decussate-opposite; petioles slender, 3 — 7 mm, 
long, densely pubescent or tomentose; leaf-blades membranous or 
chartaceous, herbaceous, often somen^t darker green above than 
beneath, varying fron lanceolate to oblong or elliptic, h*S — 12 
cm. long, 1.6 — 5*3 cm. wide, long-acuiiinate or caudate at the a- 
pex, rather shaurply and irregularly serrate along the margins ex- 
cept on the acumination and at the base, rotinded to a very obtuse 
or truncate (or rarely acute) base, densely short-pubescent or 
pilose above, densely farinaceous-pubescent with soirdid and more 
or less stellate hairs beneath; midrib slender, prominent beneath; 
secondaries very slender, 5 — 7 per side, ascending, not very ar- 
cuate, usually obscure above, hardly at all or but very slightly 
prominulent beneath; vein and veinlet reticulation fine and deli- 
cate, usually obscure; inflorescence axillary; cymes usually soli- 
tary, rcirely paiired, opposite, 1 — 2 cm, long and wide, rather 
few-flowei^d, often only once furcate, not branched, conspicuously 
bracteolate; peduncles very slender, U — 9 om. long, pubescent or 
pilose; pedicels very slender, 1 — 3 nmi. long, pubescent or pilose; 
bractlets linear, to 10 mm. long and 2 mm. wide; flower-buds 
dark-purple; flowers fragrant; calyx extraordinarily large, 
spreading campanulate-infundibular, 5 — 7.3 nun. long in all, 5 or 
more mm. wide, densely tomentose with irregularly branched hairs, 
its rim very deeply U-fid, the divisions lanceolate, about 3*2 ran. 
long, sharply acute at the apex; corolla hypocrateriform, purple 
or orchid-purple to mallow-pink, its tube broadly cylindric, 3.9 — 
U.7 mm. long, very much ampliate above, the limb ii-parted, the 
lobes ovate-lingulate, about 2.6 mm, long and 1,9 nm, wide, bl\mt 
at the apex, venose; stamens h, inserted at the base of the 
corolla- tube, exserted; filaments filiform, h — 5.3 nim. long, gla- 
brous; anthers large, oblong, about 2,1 mm. long and 1.1 mm, 
wide; pistil exserted and surpassing the stamens; style capillary, 
about 8.3 ram. long, glabrous, ampliate above into the stigma; 
stigma depressed-capitate, about 0.8 mm, wide; ovary subglobose, 
about 0.8 mm. long and wide, granulose-pulverulent, Ii-celled; 
fruit purple or purplish-lilac to orchid-purple, pxirplish even 
when young, glossy. 

The type of this species was collected by Philipp Franz von 
Siebold in Japan, not by "K. Th. E. von Siebold and J. G. Zuccai^ 
ini" as erroneously stated in Fedde, Repert. Spec. Nov. liO: 116 
(1936) . Some recent collectors i*efer to the leaves as "opaque 
above" or "opaque on both sides", but what is meant by these state- 
ments is not clear to me. The corollas are described as "purple" 
on Charette 1738 and S^ Suzuki SI .55 , "mallow-pink" on Yamozaki 
3h t and "orchid-purple" on Charette 156 1| . 

2liO PHYTOIOGIA Vol. 21, no. U 

The species has been found growing in forests, summer-green 
forests, and deciduous broad-leaved forests, copses and thickets, 
damp woods, open borders and roadsides, and in humus in half- 
shade on mountainsides, at the base of and borders of ravines, 
and on open forested banks, at altitudes of 20 to 1000 meters, 
flowering from May to August and in November, fruiting in June, 
August, October, and November. Vernacular and common names re- 
corded for it are "chobsalnam" , "kaipinam", •♦ko isi wara", 
"kottsabinam" , "namainoki", "weichhaarige Schonf rucht" , "yabu- 
murasaki", "y^bumurasaki" , "yabu-murasakishukibu" , "yahimurasaki", 
and "Vania-murasaki" . 

Suzuki tells us that the species is occasional in the shrub 
layer in sunny, moderately humid, windy, loam soil, with human 
disturbance, in deciduous oak forests. Wilson reports it "conmon" 
on Quelpart Island, Yamozaki says that it is "used as a garden 
tree" on Shikoku. Bean (1951) avers that it was introduced into 
cultivation [in England] in 1863. Li (1963) says that "It was 
first introduced by Richard Oldham in 1861—63 to Kew. It is 
still raised at Kew in a sheltered spot but is not as hardy nor as 
handsome as £. Bodinieri var. Giraldii . It is not certain whether 

the plant at present is in cultivation in America." The Herb. 
Bogor . 18099 collection, cited below, bears no indication on its 
label that it came from cultivated material, but this seems most 
probable . 

A hybrid between £. molll s Sieb. & Zucc. and C_. japonica Thunb. 
is known as xC. shirasawana Mak, This and its synonyms, C. mol - 
lis Shirasawa and C_, mollis x japonica Schneid., are often placed 
in the synonymy of C_. mollis (as, for example, by Bakhuizen van 
den Brink in 1921 and by me in my earlier publications), but are 
discussed separately herein. The illustration given by Shirasawa 
(1895) as £. mollis represents the hybrid instead. 

It is worth noting here that the Miquel (1865) reference given 
in the synonymy and bibliography above is dated "1866" by Bakhui- 
zen van den Brink (1921), that of Masamune (1955) is often cited 
as volume "6", and that of Siebold & Zuccarini (18U6) as "(1): 
526. lQhh"f Trtiich is definitely not correct, the "526" being the 
species number and not the page number, and l8Ui is the date for 
part 1 of this work. The C_, mollis of Koorders, referred to in 
the same synonyny above, is a synor^mi of C. caudata Maxim., that 
of Matsumvira is C_, oshimensis var. okinawensis (Nakai) Hat us,, 
that of Shirasawa is xC. shirasawana Mak., while that of Requien 
and of Willdenow is £. acuminata H.B.K., and the £^ farinosa of 
Roxburgh is C^ tomentosa (L.) Murr. 

The desciription of C^ mollis by Siebold & Zuccarini (I8ii6) is 
worth repeating here because it is not available in many libraries 
in the original: "ramis teretibus novellis canescentibus, foliis

It should be noted that the name, Callicarpa mollis , is not 
precluded for this taxen under the present International Rules of 
Botanic Nomenclature because the C_. mollis of Willdenow, effect- 
ively published h years earlier, was published in synonymy only 
and is therefore not regaixied as having been published validly. 

liasamune (1955) includes in the synonymy of C. mollis the name 
" Callicarpa Japonica Thunb." of Tasiro (I89U), but with a question. 

2U2 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. U 

He also regards the "C_. mollis " of Matsumura (I899 & 1912, inso- 
far as Ryuky\i specimens are concerned), Kuroiwa (1900, in part), 
Wilson (1920), and Sakaguchi (192U) as referring to C_. oshlmensis 
var. okinawensis ♦ 

Sugawara (I969) tells us that the true £, mollis grows in the 
shrub layer in plantations of Cryptomeria Japonica . Ohwi (196$) 
provides us with a key to the Japanese species of the genus, for 
which see under C, dichotoma in the present series of notes. 

As to the natural geographic distribution of Cj, mollis , Nakai 
(1923) says "Hondo, Shikoku et Kiusiu", Li (1963) says •♦This spe- 
cies is native to Japan and Korea", Masamune (19^5) says "Tangge- 
simaj Kurosima; Yakusima; Iriomotej Honsyuj Sikokuf Kyusyuj Tai- 
wan; Corea", and Ohwi (196$) says "Honshu (Rikuchu Prov. and 
southw.), Shikoku, Kyushu. — Korea". Hara (1958) unites var. 
microphylla tiieb, & Zucc . with the typical fonn of the species 
and gives the combined distribution as "Japan, Korea, Ryukyu, and 
Formosa" . 

Actually, I have found no specimens among those examined by me 
that were really collected in the Ryukyu Islands. The so-called 
records from these islands as given by Matsumura and Masamune are 
probably based on misidentifications of material that will prove 
to have been C_. oshimensis Hayata and/or £, oshlmensis var. irio- 
motensis (Masam.) Hatus. and C. oshlmensis var. okinawensis (Na- 
kai) Hatus.

Material of C. mollis has been misidentified and distributed 
in herbaria under the names C_. cuspidata Roxb., C_. japonica Thunb., 
C. kochiana Mak . , and Elaeagnus glabra Thiinb . On the other hand, 
the Oldham 620, distributed as £. mollis , is actually C. japonica

An overview of the Hookeriales 

Harvey A. Miller 

University of Illinois 

Urbana, Illinois^ 

The Hookeriales have been considered to be one of the 
more homogeneous orders of mosses. Suborders Ephemeropsidineae 
(= Nematacineae) and Hookeriineae have been distinguished 
for many years on the basis of the gametophyte being reduced 
to a protonema bearing sexual buds in the first and a normal 
leafy gametophyte in the second. The common bond within the 
order is based almost entirely on the usually small, often 
roughened, sporophyte with a double peristome, the conical 
to mi triform, often fringed, calyptra, a comparatively lax 
areolation and an absence of alar cells. The "hookeriaceous" 
peristome is usually characterized by a lamellate exostome 
somewhat taller than the endostome with its low to medium 
basal membrane and simple processes which are only rarely 
separated by a single cilium. As Crosby (1969) correctly 
observed of the Hookeriaceae as defined by Brotherus (1925), 
"one finds no character or group of characters that unite 
the group." However, one can find an aggregate of features 
among groups of genera which can be aligned to show a common 
heritage even though not all are present in any single genus 
or group of allied genera. Welch (1966, 1969) has considered 
the Hookeriaceae in the broad sense. 

The acknowledged heterogeneity of the Hookeriaceae as 
defined by Brotherus can be better understood if we recognize 
that his description and arrangement is essentially an 
abridgement of Fleischer's system presented in 1908. The 
success of Fleischer's system for the mosses is due to his 
acceptance of the concepts of evolution, as known at that 
time, and their application to develop an arrangement on 
something other than an artificial basis. Bessey's "dicta" 
presented in 1915 indicating the importance of reduction as 
one aspect of evolutionary advancement had not yet appeared 
in a refined form, so we find that, for the most part, the 
taxa have been placed in a simple to complex order. Further,

2hh PHYTOLOGIA Vol. ZL, no. U 

great stress was placed on the structure of the peristome 
and the morphology of the gametophyte was considered to be 
of somewhat lesser importance. If both sporophytic and 
gametophytic structures are taken into account, and if we 
allow reduction as an indication of advancement, the 
Hookeriaceae can be rearranged into several comparatively 
homogeneous groups with a common heritage. 

Because the reorganization proposed differs considerably 
in some ways from the Fleischer-Brotherus system, my 
principles of classification are listed below. In utilizing 
the principles the following general premises, derived in 
the main from Hutchinson (1959), must be taken into account: 
1) evolution is both upwards and downwards, the latter 
involving degradation and degeneration; 2) evolution does 
not involve all organs, or both generations, at the same time 
and both elaboration and degeneration may be occurring at 
the same time; and 3) evolution has generally been consistent 
with a particular tendency potentially being carried to the 
extreme of elaboration or reduction although the extremes 
may not be present in extant groups. 

Some Principles for Moss Systematics 

N.B. The principles are arranged from general to 
specific features, but no relative importance is to be 
implied from the order. 

1. Within any group, the larger mosses are generally 
more primitive than smaller ones. 

2. Closely attached forms with all stems leafy are more 
primitive than stoloniferous forms. 

3. Perennial mosses are more primitive than the annual 
or ephemeral species including those with a 
persistent protonema. 

4. Both completely aquatic and xerophytic forms are 
derived from an aerial, but almost constantly moist, 

5. A central strand in the stem is a primitive feature. 

1971 Miller, Hookeriales 2U5 

6. Stems with a several -layered cortex comprised of 
thick-walled or stereid cells are more primitive 
than stems with a unistratose or undifferentiated 

7. Leaf gaps are a primitive feature. 

8. Radial leaf arrangement is more primitive than 
distichous arrangement with the complanate 
condition probably intermediate. 

9. A strong costa is more primitive than a weak one 
with the ecostate condition most derived. 

10. An excurrent costa is an advanced characteristic 
sometimes associated with blade reduction. 

11. Well developed alar cells may be an advanced 

12. Smooth leaf cells may be primitive with papillate"' 
cells the derived condition. 

13. Extremely thin-walled or thick-walled cells are 

14. Specialized vegetative reproduction by brood-bodies 
is more advanced than vegetative propagation by 
simple fragmentation and regeneration. 

15. Monoicous sexuality is more primitive than the 
dioicous condition. 

16. Numerous gametangia and paraphyses are more primitive 
than few archegonia or antheridia per inflorescence. 

17. Sexual dimorphism, expressed in the extreme by the 
formation of dwarf males and the heterosporous 
tendency, as in some species of Macromi tri um and 
Homalothecium , is advanced. 

18. An elongate seta bearing an exposed capsule is more 
primitive than a short seta with an immersed capsule. 

19. A capsule wall with stomata, especially when associated 
with air chambers, represents a more primitive 
condition than the capsule lacking stomata. 

2U6 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. U 

20. Cleistocarpy is probably a derived condition in 
the Bryidae. 

21. A reduced endostome lacking processes on the basal 
membrane is advanced over one with processes and a 
high basal membrane; the presence of cilia may also 
be advanced. 

22. A peristome which is wery much reduced or absent 
is derived from a normal peristome. 

23. Retention of the operculum or a portion of it on 
the columella is an advanced condition. 

Several taxonomically useful morphological variants are 
not included above because I have been unable to divine the 
relative conditions of such things as leaf borders, lamellae, 
cell shapes, paraphyllia, plane vs. keeled structures, single 
vs. double peristomes, acrocarpy vs. pleurocarpy (there is 
good evidence both ways), calyptra type, and a multitude of 
structural features of the peristome such as median lines, 
surface, striations, and accessory ornamentation. Surely 
the list may be substantially revised, but if it serves to 
stimulate development of a better classification and 
critical morphological research, the purpose will have been 
well served. 

As defined until Crosby's (1969) Pilotrichum revision 
appeared, the Hookeriineae was comprised of the Pilotrichaceae, 
Hookeriaceae, and the Hypopterygiaceae. Because he found 
little difference between Pilotrichum and Helicoblepharum 
or among Thamniopsis , Pilotrichidium and Diploneuron , Crosby 
merged the Pilotrichaceae with the Hookeriaceae. He apparently 
was correct in his evaluation of the generic relationships 
of Pilotrichum with members of the Hookeriaceae as defined 
at that time. If we consider the position of Pilotrichum 
and its allied species within the order, it is among the more 
primitive types and quite distinct from all but a few genera 
customarily included in the Hookeriaceae-Hypnelloideae. In 
such a case it seems best to set this group apart as the 
family Pilotrichaceae and to arrange the genera within it in 
as natural a sequence as possible. 

From some Pilotrichaceous type, one may derive the 
Hookeriaceae-Hookeriopsidoideae with a long double costa, 
elongate seta, complanate foliage, and a pinnate habit. This, 
in turn, mainly by reduction of the costa and seta along with 

1971 Miller, Hookerlales 2U7 

the develop.nent of comparatively lax areolation, leads to 
the Hookeriaceae-Hookerioideae. 

The Hookerioideae, perhaps through a common ancestor 
to Eriopus , link to the Distichophyllaceae characterized 
by the asymmetric, bordered, once costate, parenchymatous 
more or less isodiametrically areolate leaves and the cross- 
striate peristome. Miiller suggested that this group be 
recognized as the family Mniadelphaceae nearly 100 years 
ago but no description was included so his name cannot 

The Daltoniaceae resemble the Distichophyllaceae in 
the bordered leaves with a single costa and isodiametric 
cells but differ in their smaller size, radial symmetry, 
uniform leaves, upright habit and their selection of 
ephemeral habitats as twigs, leaves, and even the backs of 
large weevils in the cloud forests of New Guinea. The 
peristome differs from others in the order in that both 
ranks are strongly papillose and well-developed with the 
exostome lacking striae. 

It is quite likely that Dal ton i a and Ephemeropsis have 
a common origin but the separation, as evidenced by the 
striate rather than papillose peristome, is great and doubt- 
less of long standing. Fossils of Ephemeropsis have been 
found in middle Eocene deposits from Germany suggesting that 
it was once more widely distributed than just to Malesia and 
New Zealand as at present. Continued recognition of the 
family in a separate suborder seems quite proper. 

Although Fleischer and Brotherus placed the Symphyodontaceae 
and Leucomiaceae in the Hookeriales, Dixon (1932) assigned 
them to the Hypnales (assuming that "Symphvsodontaceae" is 
a mis-print or lapsus for Symphyodontaceae). The morphology 
of the gametophyte is suggestive of Vesicularia and allied 
Hypnaceous genera but the evidence is not clear. Unfortunately, 
Dixon did not give any explanation for the shift which has not 
been taken up by Bartram (1939, 1949), Crum and Bartram 
(1958), or Crum and Steere (1957), for example. The leaves 
of Symphyodon have a few alar cells but the erect, spiny, 
purple, capsule with simple papillose exostome teeth and a 
reduced endostome is quite unlike that characteristic of the 
Hypnaceae. Leucomium has a Hookeria- like peristome and shares 
the very large thin-walled cells characteristic of Hookeria 
as well. Until some evidence can be offered to substantiate 
Dixon's opinion, I am satisfied that these families can be 
reasonably considered among the Hookeriales. 



Vol. 21, no, U 

A specialized derivative, probably from the Distichophyllaceae, 
is the Hypopterygiineae comprised of the Hypopterygiaceae and 
the Cyathophoraceae. The complanate habit is carried to the 
extreme with the development of markedly different obliquely in- 
serted, wide-spreading, lateral leaves and reduced, transverse, 
erect, amphigastrial leaves. A stipe with widely spaced, often 
scale-like, leaves or a prostrate stoloniferous stem is 
developed. The very short to absent costa, regular alignment 
of the amphigastria, and very short seta serve to set off the 
Cyathophoraceae from the Hypopterygiaceae. 

In the following revision I have arranged the taxa so far 
as possible according to the principles listed above. As the 
positions of the genera are subject to various interpretations 
depending upon the importance placed on one feature or another, 
I have not attempted to further justify the sequence of genera 
as presented. Some groups remain heterogenous and may be 
defined ultimately in somewhat different ways.

This complete revision and fuller development of the first edi- 
tion of 1952 is a valuable contribution from the author who has 
spent his whole professional life developing this field. It is a 
well written, well developed and well illustrated treatment for 
each part and for the plant as a whole. "That plants exemplify 
the phenomenon of continued enbryology cannot be denied: it is 
there as an evident fact of observation (the great ascending 
trunk of a giant Califomian redwood may be the result of 3,000 
years of apical growth or continued embryologyl ) " 

The book is very neat, yet AHJum is misspelled on p. 308 and 
induction on p. 313. 

I like the author's outlook:''The fruits of molecular biology, 
which are already remarkable and are growing with increasing ac- 
celeration, are of vital importance. But they can never be self- 
sufficient, for the growing plant has organizational characteris- 
tics not only at the molecular level, but also at the several 
higher levels — cell, tissue, organ — which we see in the har- 
moniously developed whole organism, as well as in its several 
specialized organs. For the same reason, there can never be a 
progressive botanical science based on a single branch of inqui- 
ry, be it morphology, physiology, genetics, ecology, etc. 
Botany — the science of plants — has a heritage from all its 
branches ... .Let us constantly seek new facts, liberating ideas, 
validating experiments and inferences of wide generality."

Over the last several years I have been engaged in studies 
of the North American species of Crotalaria related to 
Crotalaria sagittalis L. During these studies it became 
evident that some of the plants examined represented new taxa. 
In the text which follows, three species and two varieties are 
described for the first time. A third variety is transferred 
to a different species from the one under which it was origin- 
ally recognized. Dr. Robert H. Mohlenbrock, Southern Illinois 
University, has translated the descriptions into Latin and Mrs, 
Miriam Wysong Meyer has prepared illustrations for each of the 
new species,

CROTALARIA NITENS HBK. 1824, Vol. 6, p. 399. 

In North America Crotalaria nitens variety nitens is known 
only from the Mexican states of Chiapas, Oaxaca, and Veracruz. 
The plants of the species tend to be shrubby, have terminal 
inflorescences, lack decurrent stipules, and have relatively 
large flowers. Variety gracilis may be separated from variety 
nitens in the following way: 

Peduncles stout, 1-2 mm thick; bracts 7.5-14 mm long, 
1.2-3 mm wide C. nitens var. nitens 

Peduncles slender, 0.5-0.6 mm thick, bracts 4-5 mm long, 
0.6-0.8 mm wide C. nitens var. gracilis 


Differt a var. nitenti pedunculis tenuibus (0.5-0.6 mm 
crassis) et bracteis parvis (4.5 mm longis, 0.6-0.8 mm latis). 

Holotype: McVaugh & Koelz 1188 (MICH). 

Type locality: Mexico: Jalisco; Sierra de Halo, logging 
road 7 miles south southwest of Tecalitlan and extending south- 
east toward San Isidaro, 13-16 miles from highway. 

CROTALARIA ROTUNDIFOLIA [walt^ Gmelin, 1792, Tome II, p. 1095. 

The plants which I have ascribed to this species were 
treated by Senn (1939) under two specific names: Crotalaria 
angulata and C. maritima . Senn listed the epithet rotundifolia 
as a synonym for C. angulata Miller. Fernald and Schubert ( 1948) 
in publishing discussions of American types in British herbaria, 
indicated that the name C. rotundifolia actually applied to the 
plants Senn had treated as C. maritima. 

Figure 3. Crotalaria nayaritensis . A, Habit and leaf 
variation. B. Stem. 

261i PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. h 

During the present study, the two taxa were judged to be 
cospecific. The earliest name which appeared to apply to the 
species was C. angulata , a name Miller had based on a plant 
grown from seed from Campeche. 

The application of this epithet is in question for several 

1, Britten and Baker (1897) indicate the type does not 

differ from C. biflora L., an Asian plant. This 
observation has been confirmed by Dr. Robson of the 
British Museum (Personal communication, Nov, 1968, 
in a letter to S. W. Leonard), 

2, No plants referrable to C. angulata of Senn have 

been observed from the vicinity of Campeche, 

3, Miller's description of C, angulata does not match 

the application of Senn or the available type in 
the Miller Herbarium, 

Since these points seem to indicate one or possibly more 
errors, I feel that the name should be rejected as a source of 
confusion (ICBN Articles 69 & 70). 

After rejection of Crotalaria angulata , the earliest 
name which applies to the plants of the species is C. rotundi - 
folia jWaltJ Gmelin, Two varieties, based on Senn's species, 
C. angulata and C, maritime , are recognized. Crotalaria 
rotund if olia variety rotundifolia is the plant with appressed 
pubescence referred to C. maritima by Senn. The other variety 
is designated in the following way: 


Crotalaria angulata Miller, 1768, sensu Senn, 1939,

Type locality: South Carolina; Hampton County, about three 
miles northwest of Yemassee on South Carolina Highway 68,

Crotalaria rotundifolia var. vulgaris is distinguished by 
its spreading pubescence. Over most of its range var. vulgaris 
is also characterized by round to oval leaves, but in northern 
Florida and southern Georgia it intergrades with the usually 
narrower leaved var, rotundifolia.

Crotalaria bupleurifolia is characterized by its large size, 
unusual stipules and large habit and flowers. The two varieties 
may be distinguished in the following way: 

Stipules present only at the base of peduncles, decurrent 

for only a single internode

Stipules present at the base of most leaves, frequently 

decurrent for more than one internode

This variety was originally described by Senn under 
Crotalaria pilosa because of its stipules which wing the stem 
for more than one internode. However, the variety lacks the 
terminal inflorescence and small flower size of C. pilosa . 
Variety robusta 's overall similarity to C. bupleurifolia var. 
bupleurifolia in habit, inflorescence, and flower structure 
were used to place the variety into C. bupleurifolia .

The Martius (1835) reference cited above is often cited as 
"1833", the date of its submission for piiblication, but Dr. J. H. 
Barnhart says "I can find no evidence that this paper was publish- 
ed until 1835". 

This species has been regarded as properly named E. septangu- 
lare With, up to the present in my publications. I have referred 
from time to time in the past to the name Cespa aquatica J. Hill, 

270 PHITOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 1; 

but was vinable to find incontrovertible evidence that it had been 
published validly under the present rules of botanic nonenclattire . 
Now, however, the matter has been investigated thoroughly by Dandy 
(1969) and his extremely important discussion of the matter: is re- 
produced here for the benefit of readers who may not have the 
journal in which he published his results available in their lib- 

"In 1909 G. C. Druce drew attention to the existence in his 
copy of Hill's Herbarium Britannicim (vol. 1: I769) of an addi- 
tional plate 66 illustrating, with dissections, a genus Gespa 
with the single species C. aquatica ('Water Turffwort' ) . The spe- 
cies depicted was Eriocaulon septangulcire , described under that 
name by Withering in 1776, and so Druce on grounds of priority 
published the new combination E. aquaticum (Hill) Druce. For some 
reason Druce in his later works did not persist in the use of the 
name E. aquaticvun ; thus in his British plant list ed. 2, II8 
(I928T7 ^® retained the name E. septangulare (with E^ aquaticum 
cited as a synonym), and in his Comital Flora , 320 (1932), he used 
the name E. septangulare without mention of E, aquaticum . Possibly 
he now thought his combination E^ aquaticum to be invalidated by 
E. aquaticum Sagot ['Mss. in Herb, Sagot,'] ex Koem. in Mart., 
Fl. Brasil . 3 (1), U89 (I863); but this name was published only as 
a synonym of E^ melanocephalvun Kunth and so cannot invalidate E« 
aquatictun (Hill) Druce, 

"The additional plate 66 present in Druce' s copy of the Herbar - 
ium Britannicvan does not appear in all copies of the work; but at 
the Bjritish Museum, Bloonsbury, and at the Linnean Society of 
London there are copies which contain not only this additional 
plate but also four additional pages of text (numbered 96* — 99*) 
in which Gespa aquatica is described at length. These extra pages 
and plate were presumably not issued soon enough for inclu- 
sion in all copies of the Horbaritmi Britannicum . According to 
Hill's statement on p. 96* the plant concerned had been collected 
in the previous year ('mense Septenb. anni elapsi') on the island 
of Skye by James Robertson, and had been comiuiicated to Hill, 
with an illustration and description, by John Hope of Edinbiirgh. 
Hope himself published an account of it in Phil. Trans. Lond. 59, 
2Ul — 2li6, t. 12 (1770), in which he stated that it had been found 
by Robertson in September 1768. Thus Hill's 'anni elapsi' was 
1768, so that his additional pages and plate were issued, or at 
least printed, in I769. Hill in any case died in 1775, before 
Tfithering's publication of 'Ej_ septangulare in 1776. 

"Hope correctly placed the plant in Eriocaulon, but misidenti- 
fied it with E. decangulare L., a species confined to North Amer- 
ica. Hill, on the other hand, treated it as forming a new genxis, 
Gespa , irtiich, according to his footnote on p. 98*, he considered 
to differ from Eriocaulon in having the corolla 'depetala', Erio - 
caulon being 'tripetalum' . Hope mentioned the plant's vegetative 
resemblance to 'Galamaria Dill. Muse. Tab. 80' (Isoetes L.) in 

1971 Lloldenke, Ilotes on 2riocaulaceae 271 

irtiich, however, a flowering stem Tias unknown; Hill's footnote on 
p. 96* makes the sane point." 

All the discussion, therefore, given by ne in these notes 
previous to the present date under E. septangulare , including 
bibliography, list of illustrations, and citations, should he 
transferred to E. aquaticum .

Our work on Mentzella section Trachyphytum 
(Loasaceae) has disclosed a number of new species 
and Indicated the necessity for several nomenclatural 
changes. Some of these are presented here so that 
they may be Included In our contribution of the 
Loasaceae In the new Manual of Southern California 
Botany being prepared by Philip Munz. In addition, 
some new chromosome numbers In Mentzella are report- 
ed In the cited specimens. All chromosome analyses 
are from mlcrosporocytes, and at least two Indivi- 
duals from each population were counted.

species hybridizes with M. mojavensls , but the 
hybrids show reduced fer'Elllty with an average of 
S2% good pollen. Hybrids between M. callfornlca and 
M. veatchleina are completely sterlTe. Mentzella 
callfornlca has usually been Identified In herbaria 
as M. alblcaulls and has not been recognized as a 
distinct species. Although It Is similar to M. 
alblcaulls . M, callfornlca differs In having Targer 
flowers, M. alblcaulls has petals 2-6 mm long; longer 
styles, those of M. alblcaulls are 3-5 nun long; much 
less pronounced papillae on the seed surface; ovate- 
lanceolate bracts, while M. alblcaulls has bracts 
that are linear or lanceolate. Mentzella callfornlca 
Is also somewhat similar to M. Jonesll (n=;18) but the 
two species do not occur together; M. callfornlca has 
a more northern distribution while M. Jonesll occurs 
In the more southern portions of th'e Mojave Desert, 
the Colorado Desert, and north along the Colorado 
River. Mentzella callfornlca Is found on desert 
plains and roadside embankments with Larrea, Dalea , 
and Lyclum , below 3000 ft. , In the northern Mojave 
Desert, eastward Into Nevada. Flowering period Is 
March tnrough April.

Mentzella desertorum occurs on fine, sandy 
desert flats below 2000 ft. with Larrea, Encelia, and 
Abronla. It Is common throughout the Sonoran Desert 
northward sporadically to extreme southern Inyo Co. 
It Is very similar to M. obscura , described below. 

1971 Thompson & Roberts, Observations on Mentzella 


and often occurs In mixed colonies with M. alblcaulls 
(n=36) and M. obscura (n=l8). Mentzella desertorum 
can easily be distinguished from M. alblcaulls by 
seed characters; M. obscura has smooth seeds, not 
tessellate, while seeds of M. alblcaulls are very 
papillose and tessellate, VOien growing with M. 
obscura. It can most easily be differentiated by Its 
very short, rounded leaf lobes, which are long and 
pointed In M. obscura . Also, where the two species 
grow together, M. o'^cura always has larger flowers 
than M. desertorum" We have counted eighteen popula- 
tlons''and are here reporting the chromosome number as 
n=9* Voucher specimens are In the US and LA herbaria;

Jepson. Man. Fl. Pi. Calif. 65O. 1925. Lectotype: 
Kern Co., Randsburg, Hall & Chandler 6880 (JEPS!). 
The type specimen cited by Jepson Is "Hall & Chandler 
6680", but this specimen Is a Sclrpus , not a Mentzella. 
There Is a Hall jc Chandler 6880 from Randsburg which 
fits the description given by Jepson, and we are 
assuming the specimen number originally cited by 
Jepson Is probably a typographlced. error. 

Mentzella eremophlla Is very common along canyon 
slopes of the eastern margins of Kern Co. and the 
northwestern corner of San Bernardino Co., In associa- 
tion with Larrea , Yucca brevlfolla , and Dalea , mostly 
below 4000 ft. Although It has not previously been 
recognized as a distinct species. It Is nonetheless 
readily distinguished from all other species of 
Mentzella . It has large flowers with petals over 
1.5 cm In length, a long style over 1 cm, and very 
deeply and sharply lobed leaves, which has caused It 
to be Identified In many herbaria as M. llndleyl . 
However, Its entire bracts and recurved capsules, 
together with Its distinctive seeds (rounded with a 
pronounced hllum) are very different from the lobed

bracts and erect capsules of M. lindleyl . Also, M. 
llndleyl occurs only on serpentine slopes of *" 
Foothill Wd. communities, while M. eremophila is 
strictly a desert species. Chromosome numbers have 
been ascertained from eight populations, with voucher 
specimens in the US and LA herbaria, and the number 
is reported here as n=9. Representative specimens

Mentzelia jonesii is found in rather coarse 
soil on desert plains and slopes with Larrea , Yucca 
brevlfolia, Coleogyne , and Opuntia , often growing up 
through desert shrubs, below 4000 ft., from south- 
central Inyo Co. south throughout the Mojave Desert 
and eastward to southern Nevada sind western Arizona 
along the Colorado River. This species often occurs 
In mixed populations with M. obscura (n=l8) and M. 
albicaulis (n=36), but is easily distinguished by 
its larger flowers and longer styles ; M. Jonesii 
has petals longer than 8 mm, those of M. albicaulis 
and M. obscura are less than 8 mm; the styles of M. 
Jonesii are 6-10 mm while those of M. albicaulis and 
M. obscura are 3-5 mm long. It differs from M.

often found In mixed populations with M. veatchlema 
(n=27), M. callfornlca (n=27), M. obscura (n=18), 
and M. alblcaulls (n^6). Hybrids between M.

veatchlana produced In the laboratory are very " 
similar morphologically to M. mojavensis , and it Is 
conceivable that M. mojavengis has arisen from 
hybridization between M. calif ornica and M.

mi. south of Pearblossom, Raven 11959 (US). This 
species has been named in honor of Professor Peter 
H. Raven, Stanford University, in recognition of his 
many collections of specimens and cytological 
material of Trachyphytum species in general and his 
collections of this species in particular which have 
aided the authors in determining the species limits. 

Mentzelia ravenii occurs along roadside embank- 
ment s""an3~"canyon~sTopes associated with Larrea and 
Yucca brevifolia, in desert margin areas in Los 
Angeles County and western Riverside County. This 
species is rare both in nature and in herbaria. Most 
herbaria specimens have been variously referred to M. 
gracilenta , M. veatchlana , or M. montana. Mentzelia 
raveni i occurs commonly with mT veatchiana (n=27) and 
though similar to the latter species, can be differ- 
entiated on the basis of the following; M. ravenii has 
yellow petals while the desert populations of M. 
veatchiana are usually deep orange; M. ravenii has a 
spreading branching habit in contrast to the strict 
pattern of M. veatchiana ; the bracts of M. ravenii 
are much broader and often somewhat clasping, while 
those of M. veatchiana are narrow and not clasping. 
Flowering period is March through April.

Acrolasla trldentata Davidson has been recog- 
nized by previous monographers (as In Darlington, 
1934) as a synonym of M. tricuspls var. brevlcornuta 
Johnston, and identified in herbaria as this species 
or as M. Involucrata . Mentzella trldentata differs 
from M. Involucrata In that it does not have white 
bracts, and in that respect it is similar to M. 
tricuspls . However, the lateral cusps of the stamens 
are much shorter than the central cusp in M. 
trldentata , while the lateral cusps are longer than 
the central cusp in M. tricuspls . The seeds of M. 
trldentata are more similar to those of M. involucrata 
than they are to M. tricuspls ; they are rounded 
and broadest at the middle, constricted on both 
faces above and below the middle, while the seeds of 
M. tricuspls are ovate, broadest at the top, and 
constricted at the middle. The plants of M. 
trldentata are usually much smaller in general than 
M. tricuspls , less than 1 dm. Mentzella trldentata 
is quite restricted in range to buttes around the 
Barstow-Daggett area of San Bernardino County and 
the type locality in Inyo County. Flowering period 
is March through April. The chromosome number has 
been determined for several individuals from one 
population and is reported here as n=10.

The present paper is partly in response to many requests 
by non-bryologists for a listing of higher categories of mosses, 
but also, it seems advantageous to have a listing that can be 
used in conjunction with the recent list of orders and families 
of hepaticae by Schuster (1966) . Thus, I take the opportunity 
to provide the following version that incorporates some recent 
evolutionary evidence and some personal opinion. 

The general history of moss classification is given by 
Dixon (1932) and there are some more recent comments by 
Schaffner (1938) and Steere (1958) . The history shows the early 
use of three orders, Sphagnales, Andreaeales and Bryales. Later, 
additional orders were recognized by Fleischer, Brotherus and 
Dixon cind in the last author's work the Bryales were divided 
into Tetraphidales, Calomniales, Schistostegales, Buxbauminales, 
Polytrichales, Fissidentales, Grimmiales, Dicranales, Syrrhopo- 
dontales, Pottiales, Encalyptales, Orthotrichales, Funariales, 
Eubryales, Isobryales, Hookeriales, and Hypnobryales . My own 
views fall between these extremes and are rather conservative. 

Regarding the higher categories, I recognize a single 
Division, Bryophyta, >Aich I consider a natural group. Aside 
from the lack of vascular tissue, I would distinguish this 
natural group by the unbranched sporophyte which I consider to 
be derived from branched sporophytes of a non-bryophyte ancestor. 
For the basic subdivision between the hepatics and the mosses I 
recognize two prime characters, (l) the elongation in the base 
of the apically mature sporophyte in the former group versus the 
strictly apical growth in the latter, and (2) the tendency for 
fusion in gametophyte tissues (perianths, leaves, etc.) in the 
former versus strict separation of vegetative parts in the 

At lower levels of classification I accept Sphagnum and its 
fossil relatives as distinct at the subclass level. The most 
useful distinction of the group seems to be the difference in 
the ultimate divisions of the leaf cells. The five orders I 
recognize in the subclass Bryidae reflect a reduction in the 
conqjarative status of the Andreaeales vAiich I do not consider 
more distinct than the Tetraphidales . These two orders I view 
as rather primitive, and the fact that they and Sphagnum all 
have thalloid or other non-filamentous aspects to their proto- 
nemata seems significant. What has been called Bryales I recog- 


290 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. $ 

nize as four orders. The previous major subdivisions of the 
Bryales con^jare as follows: Nematodonteae becoming two orders, 
Tetraphidales and Polytrichales, and Arthrodonteae becoming two 
orders, Dicranales (=Haplolepideae) and Bryales ■(=Diplolepideae) . 
In this arrangement I would place the Polytrichales much closer 
to the Dicranales and there is no one character that will 
distinguish all the genera of these two orders. I find the 
peristome of the Polytrichaceae to be completely different in 
origin from that of other mosses and probably a more recent 
developnent. The Dawsoniaceae -vdiich are in the same oixier 
retain a peristome of a more primitive type. 

At the family level I have adopted some changes proposed by 
Andrews for the Leucobryaceae (1947) and Rhytidiaceae (1954) • I 
retain the Leptostomataceae vdiich Andrews (1951) placed in the 
Bryaceae. The following arrangement of the families allows for 
certain similarities that may or may not indicate relationships. 
I have placed the Schistostegaceae with the Mitteniaceae on the 
basis of observations of the protonemata of Mittenia by Stone 
(1961, 1962) . Two personal opinions are represented in my 
placement of the Fissidentaceae and the Hookeriaceae . As I 
intend to indicate elsewhere, I regard the leaf form of the 
Fissidentaceae as the product of a rather simple evolutionary 
process, and I place the family close to the Dicranaceae. I 
place the Hookeriaceae with other families, many members of 
Tirfiich share such characters as a median fvirrow on the outer 
surface of the peristome, short or double costae, and almost 
\mdifferentiated alar cells. This Hookeroid-Hypnoid conqjlex I 
consider quite distinct from either the strongly costate 
Leskeoid-Brachjrthecioid complex or the Pterobryoid-Neckeroid 
conqjlex that often shows preperistome development.

Among the Critonioid genera of the Eupatorieae, there are 
three that are notable for often having hairs on the surface of 
the receptacle. Two of these, Hebeclinium (King & Robinson, 
1971) and Decachaeta (King & Robinson, I969) have been recog- 
nized in part since Decandolle (IS36), The third genus, 
Neobartlettia , occurring primarily in the lowlands of Central 
America, is named as new here. 

The new genus shows a nijmber of trends which help in the 
recognition of most of the species. These include the usually 
long slender petioles of the leaves, the usually numerous hairs 
on the backs of the corolla lobes, the usually more papillose 
style branches, and the usually slender inornate anther collars. 
The characters that prove most diagnostic in the accurate 
delimitation of the genus are the Aill sized anther appendages 
without recurved margins, the convex or short conical receptacle, 
the short broad lobes of the corolla and the distinctive slightly 
swollen carpopodium. Though the carpopodia show differences 
between the various species, there is a basic uniformity of 
design. In its most- frequent form the lower tapering part is 
made up of shorter rather thin-walled, sometimes enlarged cells 
which are only slightly differentiated from the upper more 
elongate cells, and the upper cells form a swollen area around 
the base of the achene and upward along the bases of the ribs. 
In a few species such as N. ehrenbergii , N. pinabetensis and 
N. paezense the carpopodium is a narrower rim but with cells 
still not differentiated from those at the bases of the ribs . 

Neobartlettia proves to include most of the species that 
have been placed in the genus Hebeclinium during the second half 
of the 19th century. The genera are rather closely related 
though they can be told very easily by the shape of the 
receptacle. The receptacle of Hebecliniim is distinctly hemi- 

We have placed another group of related species in a 
separate genus, Guayania . This latter genus is distinguished 
primarily by its very asymmetric carpopodia and its usually 
cymose inflorescences.

The Eupatorian species with hair or chaff on the receptacles 
have often been segregated into a separate genus or section, 
Hebeclinium . Like many other segregates previously recognized 
in the Eupatorieae, this concept of Hebeclinium is some'what 
artificial. Some species such as Poly ant hina nemorosa (1970) 
and Urolepis hecatantha (1971) have no close relationship. Also, 
hairs are found occasionally on receptacles of many species in 
such genera as Fleischmannia and Critonia . Still, most species 
of Eupatorieae with prominent hairs on the receptacles belong to 
a related group of three genera, Decachaeta (I969), Hebeclinium , 
and Neobartlettia (1971) . 

This related group of three genera may be considered 
Critonioid in the broad sense having smooth surfaced corolla 
lobes and simple style bases . The three genera are rather 
distinct, however, in having usually slender anther collars with 
mostly inornate cells, and usually having many distinct hairs on 
the outer surfaces of the corolla lobes. Decachaeta is distinct 
by the short anther appendages with recurved margins, and all 
but one species of Decachaeta have alternate leaves. Decachaeta 
is entirely Mexican and Central American in distribution. 
Neobartlettia is most obviously distinct from Hebeclinium in its 
less convex, conical or even flat receptacles . Neobartlettia 
occurs primarily in Mexico and Central America with some South 
American species. 

In seeking a more concise understanding of Hebeclinium and 
its relatives, we have taken vertical sections through the 
receptacles of a niomber of species. In almost all the species 
of Hebeclinium the very highly convex receptacle is composed 
internally almost entirely of sclereids. The massive outer 
layer is many cells thick and breaks off rather easily. Only 
one species, H. guevarae , has been seen with considerable 
parenchyma in the receptacle and the outer layer of sclereids 
only one or two cells thick. The receptacles of both Decachaeta 
and Neobartlettia characteristically have a large cor« of 
parenchyma .

The present new genus is established for four species of the 
Guayana Highland Region that appear very different from each 
other vegetatively, but vAiich show great \miformity in most 
other characters. The convex to conical receptacles, corolla 
lobes densely hairy outside, anther collars slender with inornate 
cells, style branches with distinct short papillae and the style 
bases being plain, mark the group as related to Neobartlettia 
(King & Robinson, 1971) • The four species treated here are 
distinguished from Neobartlettia by their very asymmetrical 
carpopodia which have their foramens completely to one side. The 
species of Guayania have fewer flowers per head than most species 
of Neobart let t ia , but some of the latter genus such as N. 
hast if era (Standi . & Steyerm.) R.M.King & H.Roblnson, fall within 
the range. A distinguishing character for at least two species 
of Guayania is the distinctly cymose inflorescence. The 
inflorescence of a third species, G. penninervata . has been 
described as a panicle (Wurdack, 1953) and the underdeveloped 
specimen we have seen shows only tendencies to be cymose. The 
fourth species, G. yaviana , is described as densely corymbose 
and we have not seen any material. 

The type species, G. roupalifolia, is widely distributed on 
the tepuis of the eastern and central Guayana Highlands Region 
and has very distinctive elliptical to obovate leaves with blunt- 
ly acute apices and tapering bases. This species has been 
considered closely related to G. yaviana which is also from 
higher elevations in the central highlands . Still, relationship 
to G. cerasifolia of lower elevations to the west seems as close. 
Guayania penninervata , also of lower elevations, is not known 
from enough collections for careful evaluation. 

The new genus is the only one in the Eupatorieae that is 
endemic to or centered in the Guayana Highlands.

The name Urolepis is here raised to generic rank to accomo- 
date the single species, U. hecatantha . The most distinctive 
featvire of the genus is the greatly enlarged pubescent receptacle. 
Nearly as distinctive are the stylar appendages with long dense- 
ly imbricate papillae. The carpopodium with its enlarged thin- 
walled cells and swollen upper part is also usefxil as a character, 
along with the enlarged blunt tipped apical cells of the pappus 
setae. The combination of characters given is more than adequ- 
ate to set this genus apart from others. 

The genus, Urolepis , is not easily placed among others in 
the Eupatorieae. The glabrous unenlarged style base and smooth 
corolla lobes might be Critonioid but the style branches and 
highly annulated anther collars would be unusual for that group. 
The species has been placed in Hebeclinium tdiich is a Critonioid 
genus, but the latter has a smaller receptacle, cells of the 
anther collars without annular thickenings, corolla lobes with 
hairs on the back, style branches smooth, and pappus setae conqp- 
letely different. The style branches of Urolepis are like those 
of Ayapana and the numerous flowers on a hairy receptacle are 
reminiscent of the Ayapana related Polyanthina . Nevertheless, 
these Camploclinioid genera have enlarged style bases and very 
distinct carpopodia and do not seem closely related. The closest 
relatives of Urolepis are undoubtedly among the as yet unassigned 
species of southern Brazil and adjacent areas. A species placed 
in section Urolepis by Baker, Eupatorium trichobasis has a prom- 
inent pubescent receptacle, annulated anther collars, and the 
same type of enlarged blunt apical cells on the pappus setae. 
The achene is also rather similar but the carpopodium much less 
distinct. This latter species is very different, however, in the 
papillose inner surfaces and margins of the corolla lobes and 
the shorter more erect papillae of the style branches, and the 
relationships seem distinctly Gyptoid. It hairdly seems necessary 
to indicate that the genus Eupatorium is only remotely related 
being distinguished by hairs on the base of the style among other 
things. It is only the crudest kind of taxonomy that Urolepis 
has resided under the name Eupatorivim for so long.

The diversity between the three species in size, form of leaves, 
corolla pubescence, anther appendages, and details of the pappus 
and carpopodium indicates thoroughly distinct lines of develop- 
ment. Corolla structure and the short sometimes grooved anther 
appendages suggest closest relationship to the large genus Koan- 
ophyton .

ALDAMA and A. dentata were described as new by La Llave 
and Lexarza (1824) from plants collected near Cdrdoba In 
Veracruz, Mexico. Lesslng (1830, 1834) assigned a Schlede 
collection from near Jalapa ( 225 ) to Aldama dentata and In 
the earlier paper Included a description of the genus and 
species and drawings of floral and Inflorescence details. 
He described A. dentata as erect while noting that La Llave 
had described It as procumbent. DeCandolle (1836) trans- 
ferred A. dentata to his new Gymnopsls , a broadly conceived 
genus In which he Included species now assigned to various 
other genera. DeCandolle also described as new, G. 
schledeana , referring to the Schlede collection. He de- 
scribed £. dentata as erect and having a conical receptacle 
but G. schledeana as procumbent and having a convex recep- 
tacle. Bentham and Hooker (1860) accepted both of these 
species but considered them best assigned to Sclerocarpus , 
and Hemsley (1881) made the new combinations. Since that 
time Aldama has been Included In Sclerocarpus by most 
authors although application of the binomials has varied 
widely . 

The two genera, Sclerocarpus , as typified by £. af rlcanus , 
and Aldama , as tjrplf led by A. dentata, are superficially 
similar. Both have neutral ray flowers with yellow llgules 
and perfect tubular disk flowers. In both genera the re- 
ceptacular bract completely surrounds the mature marginal 
disk achene and becomes somewhat thickened and sculptured. 
The bract In Aldama , however, remains relatively thin and 
pithy and Is easily removed from about the achene while the 
bract In Sclerocarpus becomes thick and hard and difficult 
to remove. There are a number of other significant differ- 
ences between Aldama and Sclerocarpus suggesting strongly 
that they be considered distinct. These are indicated in 
the following table.

310 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 5 

Study of a duplicate of Schlede 225 indicates that it is 
assignable to Aldama dentata . La Llave's description of A. 
dentata as procumbent may be explained by the condition of 
plants which may survive well beyond the normal growing sea- 
son. A. dentata was described as flowering in March. At 
this time of the year in C6rdoba, where the type was col- 
lected, plants of the previous year may occasionally be 
found with the apex having died back or having been grazed 
and with only one or a few procumbent basal branches remain- 
ing. These sometimes root at basal nodes leaving little ev- 
idence of the original stem and roots. DeCandolle's de- 
scription of the receptacle of Gymnopsis (Aldama ) dentata as 
conical and that of £. schiedeana as convex is probably due 
to the different appearance of the receptacle when young and 
after maturity. While the flowers are maturing, the recep- 
tacle is convex. After the achenes and receptacular bracts 
are shed, the drying receptacle constricts marginally, forc- 
ing the center of the disk higher. Plants from northern 
South America, usually identified as Sclerocarpus coffeacola 
Klatt are also assignable to Aldama dentata although speci- 
mens from this region tend to be smaller and have smaller 
heads than those from Mexico and Central America. All the 
specimens of Aldama examined can be assigned to the single 
species, Aldama dentata .

Otto & Isa Degenar 

Due to Dr. B.C. Stone's wanderlust and resulting peregrina- 
tions from the Uhiversity of Hawaii to the Smithsonian, then 
to the College of Guam, and nov to the IMlversity of Malaya at 
Kuala Lunqjur, our plana, agreeable to us three by letter to 
Jointly describe a "mango-leaved" taxon of Aletirites . wont a- 
wry. In fact, even the small specimen we had mailed him on 
loan as type and cotypes is presumably stored in some forgot- 
ten herbarium cabinet in one of the above institutions and 
presently beyond roach. 

Now we two find the new taxon named in Pacific Science as a 
noM . nud. As agreed by past correspondence (much pertaining to 
plants has been dejx)sited in the Hunt Botanical Library in 
Pittsburgh), we three validly name this novelty as follows: 

AIEURTTES MOLUCCANA var. KATOI Degeners & Stone. A var. moluc- 

cana folia lane eo lata differt , 

Aleurites molnccana var. katol Degeners & Stone nom. nud .. ex 
Stone in Pac. Sci. 21:553. 1967. 

The variety katol differs mainly from the var. moluccana in 
bearing lanceolate leaves occasionally widened by two obscure 
lobes near base of blade. 

As stated on page 553» the taxon "is named for Mr. Tadayuki 
Kato of Kauai Hi^ School, >*io has been very helpful to me and 
to other visiting botanists. The holotype sjjecimon, taken from 
the tree on the grounds of Kauai Hi^ School in lihue, is at 
the Bishop Museum (Stone 3^7, collected on 15 April 1960)." 
That "A further specimen collected by Dr. Degener is also a- 
vallable" is not strictly correct. Otto & Isa Degener 23,956 
was collected by Mr. Hans W. Hansen from a cultivated tree on 
Kauai on Sept. 24, 1955. Whether Degeners 23,956 of 1955 and 
Stone (collected with Kato according to herbarium sheet label) 
3,427 of i960 are from the sasie tree, wo do not know. Accord- 
ing to Mr. Hansen, his plant was a cultivated one and was said 
to be native to Samoa. 

In Hawaiian and most other Polynesian dialects, typical 
Aleurites ■oluccana is known as "kukui" or some variant of 
this spelling. In Diglish it is often called the "candlenut 
tree," referring to its former use as a source of light. The 


316 PHTTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. $ 

Kato kukui, with its unusual "mango leaves," is conspicuous 
and attractive. So by this time it may be seen cultivated here 
and there about residences and in parks. 

AIEURTTES MOLUCCAMA var. REMfl (Sherff ) Stone, the Remy kukui, 
is a reduction made in the same publication by Stone of A* remyi 
Sherff in Field Mus. Bot. Ser. 17:558. 1939. We early followed 
Dr. Sherff, printing an illustrated description of this taxon 
in our Flora Hawaliensis . After studying a large series of 
sheets of Aleurites recently, we noted that both the remyi and 
the katoi tendencies occur in various islands of the South Pa- 
cific. We now tend to the belief that Stone's interpretation 
may be the superior one* 

The first paragraph of Stone's page 552 is obviously gar- 
bled: The "mango-leaved" kukui (var. katoi ) with practically 
no lobes is obviovisly not the same as the "Kona" kukui (var. 
rengri) with very narrow lobes. 

AIZURITES MOLUCCANA var. AUIANII Deg. & Deg. vm^. nov. Arbor 

seaanibua circa 23 nm. latis . 

This hitherto undescribed variety has seeds about 23 nm. 
wide, 15 mm. thick and 20 mm. high; while the ubiquitous var. 
moluccana has them conmonly 30 mm. wide, 23 mm. thick and 30 
mm. hi^. The type is Deg. & Deg. 32,Zf81. Collected in Kukui- 
haele, Hawaii, by Stanley and Atilani Loo, March 28, 1971> and 
deposited in NY. 

The botanical recognition of this taxon was fortuitous. 
Foixed by a broken tooth into Dr. Robert N. Ogawa's dental 
chair in Hilo, Hawaii, the kane patient learned that Mrs. 
Ogawa was an amateur botanist, the daughter a professional 
botanist with the liiiversity of Michigan, and Dr. Ogawa him- ' 
self an ardent maker of seed lei or necklaces as a hobby. In 
the case of the kukui "nut," turned ebony black by burial in 
a taro patch. Dr. Ogawa explained his perfected method of pre- 
paring the seeds. The ccMnversation then changed to the preva- 
lent rumor of a small-seeded kukui growing in isolated Waiplo 
Valley, District of Kohala. Apparently only one tree remains 
in this once heavily popiilated valley, badly mauled by careless 
collectors of its prised seeds. The dentist was a bit evasive. 

Returning for further treatment days later, the patient was 
surprised and delighted to receive from Dr. & Mrs. Ogawa a 
truly regal lei for Mrs. Degener consisting of 25 matched, 
dwarf kukui seeds originally collected in Waipio Valley and 
neighboring Kukuihaele. " Kukuihaele , " contrary to oTir hope, 
does not refer to this rare kukui variety. The coiiq)lex word 


Degener & Degener, Sane Aleurltea taxa 


iMans "iftovlng kukvil tree," probably in allusion to the action 
on the trees of the strong trade vdnds fxmneled between the 
heists of Mauna Kea and Kohala. 

As one sxirprise deserres another, the writers named this 
new taxon proyisionally r&r. ogawae, mailing a copy of the 
manuscript to Mrs. Ogawa with the plea she furnish good flower- 
ing and fruiting material from a chosen tree as type and co- 
type specimens. 

After B.C. Stone 

The third surprise was an answering 'phone call from Mrs. 0- 
gawa: The couple had not collected the mateidal at all. The col- 
lector had been Mr. Stanley *Kolomona Loo, a resident of Hono- 
kaa of Chinese-Hawaiian ancestry, and his son Aulani. The family 
knows of two trees growing on such precipito\i» tonkin that 
the father mist help his son Aulani to and from the trees with 
aid of a rope. As these tr^es are such a rarity and might be 
injured by Tandals or careless Tisitors, we feel it wise not to 
diTulge their location. Because of Mrs. Ogawa *8 insistance and 
Mr. Loo* 8 knowledge and advice, we here name the plant in his 
son's honor Aleurites moluccana rar. aulanii . The name "Au- 
lani" is particularly appropriate for the ktikiii or candlonut 
as it means "Light of HeaTen" in Hawaiian. 

The unspoiled native Hawaiian forests (some have escaped 
lumbering, or bulldozing for other cooaercial interests) teem 

♦As the Hawaiian alphabet lacks the letter "S", "K" is substi- 
tuted for it. 

318 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. $ 

with endemic birds and endemic insects, all nicely adjusted 
to one another over eons of time. On the contrary, as we have 
mentioned elsewhere, our kukui forests are conspicuously si- 
lent except for the occasional thud of a heavy kukui fruit 
striking the ground; nor are they teeming with insects. Fur- 
theremore, thus far no one has unearthed kukui pollen among 
other fossil pollens in old, undisturbed layei^ of earth. 
These observations and the fact that the kukui is so valuable 
to the Polynesians for light, food, medicine, native jewelry, 
tapa dye, gum and for tanning fishnets moves us to the belief 
that the tree is of aboriginal introduction from the South. 
Birds and insects, dxiring the couple thousand years of its 
possible introduction, simply have not yet had time to be- 
come adjusted to the plant or to evolve with the plant as 
they have done to the unquestionable endemic ones in the Ha- 
waiian flora. 

Whether the ruraor is true regarding tha an'lTal at least 
of one tree of variety katoi coming from Tahiti or Samoa pre- 
sumably since the landing of Captain Cook in 1778> we are al- 
most certain that varieties remyi and ualanii were here be- 
fore that date. Did such taxa develop de novo in the Hawaiian 
Islands, or are they relics of taxa the Polynesians had 
brought with them from the South? If the latter is true, a 
careful comparison in museums of taxa in the Hawaiian Archi- 
pelago with those in the South Seas should add evidence as 
to the migrations and island stop-overs made before these 
vikings of the sunrise settled in Hawaii Nei to intermarry, 
multiply and become amalgamated into a distinct race recog- 
nizable by their distinctive features as the true kamaaina . 

Should the pricklepoppy once so comnon on Oahu be Ar- 
gemone glauca L., A. glauca Pope, A. glauca (Prain) Degener 
or A. glauca (Prain) Deg. & Deg.? Regarding Dr. Stone's as- 
STimptions about the Argemone binomial, appearing in the same 
article on page 550, the kane writer had the single explana- 
tion had he been asked for it. He enrolled at the Ifriiversity 
of Hawaii for the 1922-23 school year, frequently taking the 
Honolrilu trolley to the end of the Kaimuki line. There he 
botanized in the red 'dobe soil and dust, collecting such 
xerophytes as Wgltheria, Sida, Lipochaeta , Jacquemontia and 
Argemone , plants now replaced by houses and watered lawns 
with bordering cultigens. A New Yorker, he retiimed to his 
home, enrolling for an advanced degree at Colvmibia Uiiversity, 
though spending most of his time critically identifying his

>nien the Hawaiian Islands were rediscovered by Captain 
James Pace Cook in 177d, only two genera of palms grew in 
the archipelago. The one was Pritchardia . consisting of 
many taxa of fan-leaved or palmate palms; the other, Cocos. 
consisting of a single species of feather-leaved or plumose 
palm. Odoardo Beccari and Joseph F. Rock in 1921 published 
their beautifully illustrated work entitled ♦A Mwiographic 
Study of the Genus Pritchardia, 1-77. It is the last, au- 
thoritative work on the group. Thou^ we know it conceals er- 
rors, we do not yet know enou^ to correct them. The species 
are native mostly to Micronesia and Polynesia, attaining 
their major development in the Hawaiian Archipelago. They 
grow from sea level to about 5,000 feet elevation; from de- 
sert to dense rainforest. According to Beccari & Rock's 
findings, there are about 25 species and five varieties ex- 
tending from the Island of Hawaii westward to distant Nihoa. 
Since 1921 additional taxa have been described, some of 
questionable validity. 

Beccari & Rock describe as new, single individual palm 
trees growing in hot, lowland gardens, and not known any- 
where in the wild. Could not such individual palms be the 
offspring of seeds collected in the rainy moxmtains of our 
islands? Do they merely look new because they are growing 
under greatly change conditions? Ve do not presently know. 

One of our local botanists. Dr. Harold St. John, collected 
specimens fr>om a single palm in the mountains near Punaluu, 
Oahu and, using the monograFdi, keyed it to a certain species. 
At a different season he visited the identical palm, collect- 
ed additional material and, using the same key, came to an en- 
tirely different speciest Obviously, something is wrong soms- 

While botanizing for five months in 1928 on Molokai, the 
kane writer searched for Pritchardia. known to Hawaiians as 
loultt, and noted some growing cultivated near the coast in 
the garden of an elderly Hawaiian kno^ci to him as Levi. From 
his part-Hawaiian assistant, in whcna Levi had confided, he 
learned that Rock had heard about loulu palms growing in 
some Molokai fastness. He offered Levi pay to fetch him speci- 
mens. As Rock refused the price Levi wanted, Levi resolved to 
have his cake and eat it too. So he agreed to Rock»s more mod- 
est offer but, instead of clintoing the mountain range to get 
specimens of the elusive palm, he merely substituted material 
from one of the trees in his yard. Levi thou^t it a great

Joke, and chuckled while telling the writer's assistant abooi 
the deception. Erldently sons Molokai taxxxi is listed erro- 
neously in the monograph as to habitat. 

We see no waj of greatly rerising Beccarl & Rock's work, «»• 
cellent for the tine and conditions under which it was produc- 
ed, without concentrating on collecting herbariun speciBens 
fi*om all colonies still extant, a task easily facilitated by 
airplane spotting of these conspicuous trees. Seeds fron each 
colony, preferably from the sane pain fron which voucher nater- 
ial had been preserved, should then be planted \mder \mifom 
conditions with sinilarly procured seeds from other colonies. 
Such cultivated plants nust then be compared with one another 
when they finally flower and fruit, as well as against the 
vouchers collected fron the p>arent plants nany years before. 
The difficulty of such a project is the gathering of material 
so often growing in almost inaccessible Jungles and on cliffs, 
the acreage needed for the tests, the length of time before a 
seedling finally matxires to produce diagnostic characters of 
flower and fruit, and the pathetic fact that so nany of such 
distinctive colonies already have succumbed to the bulldozing 
"progress" of so-called civilised man. The investigator wtill 
will not be sure if the old, historical specinens collected by 
Reck and others had not come from such colonies that are now 
extinct. Even though the task of getting order out of chaoe 
seems hopeless, Foster Botanical Garden under Director Paul 
R. Weiss ich has made a good beginning. 

If the above preanble is correct, it is obvious that many 
kinds of loulu are endemic to the Hawaiian Islands, even 
thou^ no one yet knows how many species and varieties exist- 
ed here in 1778. It is also plain that this genus must have 
been in the Hawaiian Islands for eons - certainly before the 
arrival of the Polynesians - to enable it to speciate to such 
an extent. 

The fossil record certainly proves the antiquity of the lo- 
ulu . Uhtil recent bulldozing on Oahu destroyed then, erect 
Bkolds of the tininks were observable on the noi^h side of the 
road leading mauka to the U.S. Army Tripler General Hospital. 
Such palms were thriving until the lower parts of their smooth 
trunks were buried by the rain of ash that fell during the ex- 
plosions that formed Salt lake Crater. 

On the Island of Hawaii at KailiUi, near Wahaula within 
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, a few impressions of pros- 
trate trxmks can be seen on a prehistoric though not very 
old pahoehoe lava flow. Beyond the southwestern boundary of 
the National Park, between the main road and the ocean, at 
*Kawaa, lies an expanse of prehistoric, smoot h p ahoehoe. ^

Armed with camera, broom, ^ihlskbz'oom and trowel, the writers 
and Mr. & Mrs. Theodore L. Piceo fanned oyer the area. Here 
the pahoehoe had gently flowed through a palm grove, the wet 
trunks biimlng slowly throu^ the base so that the trees 
fell helter skelter upon the cooling lava. Several score im- 
pressions were carefully examined, all showing the i*elative-* 
ly smooth, unbranched outline of a side of the palm trunk 
(Fig. a). Many also showed rectangular checks formed as the 
lava oozed into the charring wood (Figures b, c). One im- 
pression even showed the base of a fan-like blade (Fig. d).

resembling that of a modem Prltchardla (Fig. e) now growing 
at nearby Punaluu. Not a single trunk impreBsion exhibited 
leaf scars. No palm fruits nor seeds were observed. 

Fossil (Fig. d) and modem (Fig. e) leaf blades. 

"According to tradition, at least the large-fniited type 
of coconut known as niupolapola was brou^t to the Hawaiian 
Islands by the early Polynesian imnigrants from Bolabola, an 
island not far from Tahiti. Before Captain Cook's coming the 
Hawaiians knew also a few other kinds, such as the niuhiwa 
with dark-colored fniit and the niulelo with yellowish 
fruit."* The fruit was both food and drink for the Polynesi- 
an voyagers, and certainly the most necessary and efficient 
supply of a potable liqviid in transportable form for a long 
ocean voyage. We surmise some coconuts escap>ed being consum- 
ed, and wex^ planted in the newly discovered islands. 

Between Kawaa Bay and the boundary of the National Park 
is the coastal village of Punaluu. Just back of the black 
sand beach is a mixed grove of loulu ( Pritchai^ia affinls 
Beccarl) and niu or coconut ( Cocos nucif era L. ) palms . The

former, a fan palm, bears erect, slender trunks hardly 
thickened at base and without prominent leaf scar*. The lat- 
ter, a feather palm, bears a curving trunk thickened at base 
and someDhat constricted at the prominent leaf scars. The 
contrast is well shovm in figures f and g . with these dif- 
ferences in mind, the reader shoxild conpare the photographs 
of the living trees with those of the fossils. 

Figures f and g showing two coconut palm trunks with 
prominent leaf scars and several Pritchardia trunks 
with obscure leaf scars. 

In conclusiwi, the writers are convinced that the loulu 
reached the Hawaiian Islands some eons ago, and may have 
even mor« or less encircled many stretches of the Islands 
with extensive gix)ves, particvilarly before the Polynesians 
brought the pig and, perhaps as stowaway, the seed-eating 
Polynesian rat. The fossil impressions at Kaillili and above 
all at Kawaa are irrefutable prxx>f of this fact. These beau- 
tiful palms may well have extended along the shore of Hawa- 
ii Volcanoes National Park, and hence deserve replacement. 
Regarding the coconut, however, we consider it a newcomer 
to the Hawaiian Islands until irrefutable evidence to the 
contrary appears. Tradition bolsters this belief as well as 
the fact that no fossil imprints of a coconut palm have ever 

1971 D^ener L Degoner, Prltchardla and Cocoa 325 

been aeen, not even at Kawaa Bay where conditions wer« Idaal 
for Its growth and fossilisatlon. 

Many hare been eonfotinded bj the lonln growing in such Iso- 
lated localities. It Is of course possible that those trees 
perched on cliffs reached there as fruits falling or washing 
down from the plateau for«st abore. Or a grore aay hare ex- 
isted for ages aa a plateau before this was slowly eroded Into 
gulches and finally into cliff -flanked canyons. The grore of 
pains sinply continued to grow in the saaie spot froB genera- 
tion to generation, fiirst on gulch sides and finally on the 
resi;iltant cliffs. All this is possible, but is it pirobable? 
On the Island of Hawaii llTes the natlTe crow a la la (Corvua 
tropicus Gnelin). To be sure all crows are black; but this 
one, as the kane writer observed in 1927 in the Kona Jungle, 
is unique in keeping its bill agape to exhibit to its Bate 
the beaiitiful akala-berry-r«d surface within. Evidently the 
ancestors of such a species, now so distinctive, miat have 
come to the Archipelago eons ago. Today the species is on 
the verge of extinction, perhaps less than a dozen Individ^ 
uals persisting on the Island of Hawaii. In I89I4 however, 
when the ornithologist George C. Munro surveyed this island 

for birds "the alala was numerous. They were in flocks ," 

Perhaps crows andor other large, seed eating birds were nvf- 
merous also on some of the remaining Islands and aided in 
the early distiribution of the loulu . If "civiliied" man could 
Just about exterminate the crow on the Island of Hawaii from 
flocks to perhaps less than a doten individuals in eighty 
yearfl, what could not the natives have accomplished during 
the past few thousand? We know "The Hawailans snared the crow 
and used the black feathers for kahilis and for dressing 

There is hope for the preservation of the Pritchardia 
molds because these and the archaeological features of the 
general area can be of value to the lucrative tourist in- 
dustiy. Besides having these easily accessible and clear, 
prostrate tree molds, the Kawaa region is flanked to the 
northeast by the ruins of the massive Keeku helau or temple. 
This must have catered to a large nel^boring population 
attracted by the beach and the nearby freshwater springs. 
Unfortunately the many house sites have been washed flat by 
the tsunami of 1868; but llllli, or smooth water-worn peN- 
bles from the beach and from the flooring of the huts, are 
scattered everywhere. One even finds evidence of ancient 
pleasures and industry. Here and there, pecked into flat, 
smooth lava are the depressions of the papamu, or checker- 
board (Fig. h), upon which the Hawailans played konane 
with white coral pebbles against black lava ones; and a- 
long the rocky coast are cup-like depressions ("baitcups") 
in which the natives pounded their chumoilng material used

for luring fish. A few stone "aalt pans" in which seawater 
was evaporated to gain salt for bairber with upland residents 
are also there. Such an area rich in Hawaiiana and fossils 
may well escape destructions

Vidal 4 Lemoine (1970) record the coBmon name "ntoo peeb lab

Bient that it is an "Arbre de for8t claire ou de forSt secondalre 
4 fruita chamua violets, non comestibles. Lea feuillea sont 
appliqu6es sur les blessurea". 

Burkill (1966) lists the following vernacular naaea for thia 
plant: "tampang besi" ("tulang besi" is an error for thia), 
"tampang besi puteh" (-white-fruited tampang besi), "tampong 
besi", "tanpoh bSsi", "tampah Wfsi", "tampal bd'si", "tapah bSsi", 
"aulap", "karat besi", "chapal", "chapul kSchil", "nasi-nasi"; 
in Java "oeniran utan", "mSniran sapi", "gambiran", "songka", 
"aongka kampong"; in Sundaneae "katumpang"; in Sumatra "setampo", 
"bebStih kinana"; in Bangka "nasi-nasi"; in Thailand "khow tok". 
He notes, further, that the plant is "A shrub foxind throughout 
Malaysia and to Australia; in the Peninsula it is ccnmon. It is 
one of the chief plants used for poulticing by the Malays, and 
is also administered internally. For colic a decoction of the 

leaves is drunk This use extends to Java and through to the 

Moluccas. A similar decoction is given after childbirth, and for 

fever. For syphilis an infusion of the root is used and 

Rumpf aaya a decoction of the roots is useful for diarrhoea. The 

'Medical Book of Malayan Medicine' seema to put this into the 

first place as a means of treating aprue, prescribing, as a 
draught, an infusion of the root, a gargle prepared by infusion 
of the leaves, and a mouth-wash prepared by infusing the bark. A 
decoction of the root of aooe species of Callicarga, auch aa thia, 
ia prescribed,,,.., for distension of the stomach, the treataent 
conpriaing bathing the body by a decoction of the leavea . The 
leaves are uaed by the Malaya for poulticing in fever, and for 
irubbing over the body and are applied to swellinga . A lotion con- 
taining the juice of the root ia uaed for nasal caries . . . .The 

leaves are said to atupefy fiah The wood buma ateadily and 

thoroughly, whence the cocinon Javanese name; it will not make 
charcoal. Jansonnius has described the minute structure...." 

Dop (1932) states that C. longifolia is similar to C^ petelotii 
Dop in the form of its leavea and the dimensions and disposition 
of the cymes auid that the latter may possibly represent a natural 
hybrid between C. longifolia and C_. dichotoma (Lour.) K. Koch and/ 
or C. brevipea ^enth.) Hance.

The original description (l81i6) of this variety is "foliis lan- 
ceolatis vel ovato-lanceolatis actiminatis basi rotundatis dense 
et aequaliter serrulatis pollicaribus vel bipoUicaribus . Die 
Eehaaining und allgemeine Form der Blatter stiimt mit der mollis 
Qberein, nor sind dieselben viel kleiner und am Rande mit Aus- 
nahme der Basis yxad Spitze gleichmassig f einsagezahnig . Die 
Bluthen sind an unseren Exemplaren nicht vollstandig entwickelt." 
Nakai (1923) describes it as "Frutex 1 — 1.5 metralis ramosissimus . 
Folia 1—3 cm. longa. Nom. Jap. Kobano-yabumurasaki. Hab. in 
insula Hokitsuto. Distrib. Kiusiu." Masamune (1929, 1955) re- 
cords it from Honshu and Kyushu, Japan, as nell as from Yakushima 
in the Ryukiu Islands, and records the vernacular name 
**bagabayabu-murasaki" . 

According to Hara (19U8) the "£, mollis var. microphylla Sieb. 
& Zucc." of Nakai (1922, 1923) is really £. mollis var. ramosis- 
slma Nakai. 

It should be noted that Siebold it Zuccarini's reprint publica- 
tion (18U6) is often cited as Tl. Jap. Fam. Nat. 2: l56" and 
Masamune' s 193U publication as "Masam. Fl. 387". Miquel (I87O) 
cites Siebold 3 [specimens?], Keiske 1 [specimen?], and Mohnike 
1 [specimen?]. 

In sone of my previous publications I did not accept the 
validity of this variety and reduced it to synonyaQr under typical 
C. mollis Sieb. & Zucc. However, recent Japanese workers, with 
field e3q>erience, regard it as a valid taxon and so I bow to 
their Judgement. As yet I have seen no herbarium material of it.

According to Hara (1918) this taxon iiaa erroneously reported 
as C. mollis var. aicrophylla Sieb. & Zucc. by Nakai in 1922 and 
1923. He cites an illustration ["f. 2Ja83 (1938)"], but unfor- 
tunately gives the nane of the publication and its author only in 
Japanese characters. 

Masamune (1955) records var. ramosissiaa fron Honshu, lyuahu, 
and Sikoku, Japan, as well as from Yakuahima in the Ryukiu Is- 
lands, and gives the vernacular name "kobano-yabumurasaki" ,

Merrill (1926) describes this plant as follows: "A shrub a- 
bout 2 ffl high, the branches terete, older ones glabrous, the 
branchlets slender, densely and minutely stellate-furfuraceous 
or stellate-sublepidote, the indumentum brown or pale. Leaves 
opposite, membranaceous or subchartaceous, oblong to broadly 
oblong-lanceolate, 6 to 15 cm long, 3 to 6 cm wide, slenderly 
and sharply almost caudate-acuminate, base acute or decur rent- 
acuminate, margins crenate or crenate-dentate, the upper surface 
dark brown to black and shining nhen dry, entirely glabrous or 
with scattered stellate hairs when immature, the lower surface 
paler than the upper, minutely and rather densely pitted and 
with numerous shining glands, the indxmentxim of short, pale, 
stellate, scattered hairs, for the most part confined to the mid- 
rib and lateral nerves; lateral nerves about 7 on each side of 
the midrib, slender, curved-ascending, distinct; petioles 1 to 3 
cm long, minutely and rather densely stellate-pubescent. Cymes 
axillary, mostly densely flowered, about as long as the peti- 
oles, the peduncles, branches, and calyces densely and minutely 
stellate-pubescent with pale or brownish hairs, the pedicels a- 
bout 1,5 ■!!> long, the bractooles linear, 0.5 ■■ long. Calyx 
truncate, about 2 mm long, 1,5 ■» in diameter, narrowed below to 
the c\ineate base. Corolla txibe 2 m long, glabrous, the lobes 
U, oblong-elliptic, rounded, glabroxis or very slightly pubescent 
above, about 1,5 tm long. Filaments glabrous, U to U.5 nn long; 
anthers oblong, 1,3 mi long. Style exserted, glabrous, 7 nin 
long. Fruit globose, glabrous, black when dry, about 2 mn in

The type of the species iras collected by Ifaximo Ramos and Gx*e- 
gorio E. Bdaflo [ Philip. Bur. Scl. kh297 ] in secondary forests at 
low altitudes on Tawltawi, Stilu Archipelago, Philippine Islands, 
in August, 192li, and iias deposited in the herbarlTjm of the Philip- 
pine Bureau of Science at Manila, now unfortxuiately destroyed. 
Merrill cites also Philip. Bur. Scl. liiiL?^ , gathered by the same 
collector at the type locality in July of 19 2U. He c cements that 
this is "A species rather well characterized within the genus by 
its very short indumentum, irtiich is dense on the branchlets and 
inflorescences, and wanting or very sparse on the vegetative 
parts. The leaves are characteristically black or dark colored 
on the upper surface when dry, as in Cal 11 carpa cana Linn, and G. 
bicolor Juss., and the species is apparently allied to these in 
spite of the difference in indumentum. According to Bakhiiizenis 
arrangement of the species, it would apparently fall near or with 
CallicaiT)a japonica Thuhb. and £, longifolla Lam,, to neither of 
which can it be properly referred. I doubt very much if any of 
the Philippine or Malaysian material is properly referable to 
Thunberg's species." 

Recent collectors describe this plant as 2 m. tall, the stems 
3 cm. in diameter, the corolJas bluish-pink, stamens yellow, and 
fruit green (in August), growing in secondary forests at low al- 
titudes • 

In all, 7 herbarium specimens, including material of the type 
collection, have been examined by me.

As has been pointed out by me in 1932, the Asiatic plant for 
so long a time known as C. acuminata Ro^d). must take on another 
name. While this binomial was actually first proposed by Ro^dmrgh 
in l3lli, it was not accon^janied by any description. It was, 
therefore, a mere hyponym, and is not considered to have been va- 
lidly published at that tine. A full description, validating the 
name, was not published by him until 1820. In the meantime, Hum- 
boldt, Bonpland, & Kunth published their C. acxaainata in quite va- 

1971 Moldenke, Monograph of Callicarpa 3ll3 

lid form for a Mexican, Central and South American species in 
1817 with a full description. The Asiatic and American plants are 
similar in appearance, but are not corispecific. The American 
plant, therefore, must retain the name C_. acxxminata H.B.K. and 
the Asiatic plant must take on a new name. 

The second oldest name for the Asiatic plant is C_. reevesii 
Wall., proposed in 1829, but also as a hyponym. It was not vaOid- 
ly published until by Walpers in 13U5. In 1336, however. Hooker 
& Amott published £. nudi flora , accompanied by a good descrip- 
tion and illustration. It seems obvious, therefore, that the 
Asiatic plant first known as £. acuminata Roxb., then as C_. 
reevesii Wall., must now be known as £, nudi flora Hook. & Am. It 
has been collected rather extensively in southern China, Canton, 
Kwangtung, Hainan Island, Macao, and Lappas Island, and occurs 
also in Silhet, Tenasserlm, and Singapore. 

Roxburgh's original (1820) description of his C_. acuminata is 
"Shrubby, tender parts hoary with a stellate pubescence. Leaves 
broad-lanceolar, acuminate, remotely repand, denticulate. Panicles 
axillary, long p>eduncled, dichotomous, shorter than the leaves. 
A native of Silhet, flowers in May. In this species the panicles 
are elevated on longer peduncles than in the other species [of 
India] , the leaves and young parts very hairy, except the upper 
surface of the former irhen fully expanded, which is then naked 
and reticulate; from four to five inches long by nearly two broad," 

King & Gamble (1908) amplified this description as follows: "A 
shrub, the branches, petioles, the under surface of leaves, and 
inflorescence covered with a soft, whitish-grey or pale tawror, 
mealy tomentum of branched or stellate hairs. Leaves coriaceous; 
lanceolate or elliptic-lanceolate, long acute at apex, attenuate 
at base and often slightly unequal, not decurrent; upper surface 
dark when dry, glabrous except the neinres, lower tonentose; mar- 
gins entire for the lower third, above that shortly dentate ser- 
rate; ^ to 8 in. long, 2 to 3 in. broad; midrib stout; main nerves 
13 to 15 pairs, nearly regular, starting at an angle of U5° to 60° 
with the midrib and curving gently to the margin, each pair joined 
by rather obscure transverse nervelets, all slightly impressed a- 
bove; petiole .75 in. long. Cymes axillary, rounded, many-flower- 
ed, widely dichotomous, reaching U in. long and about 3 in. broad; 
peduncles 1.5 to 2 in. long; bracts linear subulate, 1 in. long; 
pedicels short, slender, nearly glabrous, .05 to .1 in. long; 
flowers purple? Calyx very short, nearly glabrous but with a few 
stellate hairs and minutely glandular-punctate, very shortly li- 
toothed. Corolla twice as long as calyx .1 in.; lobes rounded, 
sparsely stellate-pubescent and glandular-punctate. Stamens long 
axsert; filaments slender; anthers small; the connective glandular- 
punctate. Ovary rounded, veiy glandular; style very long, twisted; 
stigma peltate, lajrge. Dnipe purple, small, .075 to .1 in. in di- 

am., nearly globose; pyrenes U Singapore: near the Botanic 

Gardens, Murton 87; Ridley 688 U cultl Distrib. Tenasserim (?)

species as "S.-Chinal Cantonl Lappas-Isl.l KwantungJ Hongkongl 
Hainanl Macaol Silheti ? Tenasseriml? Singaporel** 

Recent collectors describe the plant as a low woody shrub, 1~3 
m. tall, or sometimes a small to large tree, to 9 m. tall, erect, 
the stems 1^ — 2^ cm, in diameter, bark brown and flaky, branches 
pale furfuraceous, becoming gray-gr«en, the leaves "yellow-gr«en" 
or green, pale- or deep>-green above, pale-green or grayish mealy- 
tomentose beneath (or "light-green above, tawny beneath"), "with 
prominent glaucous vein" beneath, the flowers fragrant or ill- 
smelling, the stamens pxirple, the immature fruit green, maturing 
to red ( Chun & Tso WUh, Tsang s.n. , Wang 3$Uh6 ) , lilac ( Chun 
68U6), purple-red ( Liang 632^U ) , purple, or blue; "green to 
white" on Liang 66369 and "brown" on Chun UoU22 &. I^i 125 . The 
corolla is described as being "red" on W. T^ Tsang 29, "pink" on 
Fung 20276 , Liang 62117 , and Taam 1^60 , "rose" on Bodinier 798, 
"pale pink-purple" on Clemens & Clemens 311i8 , "peach- red" on Lei 
9IU, "purple-pink" on Clemens & Clanens 3936, "violet" on Chun 
315$ , "purple" on Chun 2108 , Tsang & Fung 1^61 , and Wang 32788 , 
and »hrhiten on Ying 872 . 

Collectors have found the pl£uit growing in loam soil or sand, 
in open thickets, mixed woods, forests, and gardens, on level 
land, slopes, open hillsides, rocky mountains, and forest mar- 
gins, along open roadsides and streamsides, suid in partial shade 
at the sides of ravines, at sCtitudes of 1200 feet, flowering in 
February and from April to September, fruiting from August to 
Febiruary. Tsang describes it as "abundant scattered shrubs in 
dry sandy soil", Lau says "fairly cojanon, dry cliffs, sandy soil',' 
and Lei reports "rare in loam of dry level land", "scattered 
shrubs in village greens", and "in roadside gardens". Bodinier 
reports it as "rare dans I'lle" on Hongkong, while Chun found it 
to be "common" on Hainan Island. 

It should be noted that Sprengel (182^) places Roxburgh's C. 
acuminata in the synonymy of C. heynii Roth [now known as C. 
camdicans (Burm. f.) Hochr,], The Hooker & Amott I836 reference 
in the bibliography of £. nudiflora is dated "I8I4I" by Bakhuizen 
van den Brink (1921), Stapf (1929), and P'ei (1932), but actually 
was published in 18 36 [see the dates of publication of the various 
pages of this work, as well as of the plates, under £. kochiana 
in these notes]. The TiVallich 1829 reference is cited eis "1828" 
by Bakhuizen van den Brink, who also cites the 18U5 Walpers refer- 
ence by the title-page date of "iSliU — l8Ii8". The King & Gamble 
publications, referred to above, are both often cited as "I909" 
and the pages reversed or the serial citation given as "7U (U)"* 
Dr. Lam (1919) reduces Roxburgh's C. acuminata to synonymy under 
C. longifolia f . floccosa Schau, 

The Gallic arpa acuminata var. angusti folia of Metcalf (1932) 
seems to be merely a new name for G. nudiflora Hook. & Am. as 
distinguished by him from C. acuminata Roxb. and C. reevesii Wall.

He cites for it a Ford s.n. , originally detennined as C_. purpurea 
A. L, Juas. in the Arnold Arboretum herbairium. Calllcarpa macro - 
phylla var. sinensis C. B. Clarke is described by Clarke (1885) 
as having "Leaves oblong-lanceolate, closely denticulate, pediin-

C. lobo-apiculata Uetc . Vy good friend. Dr. Santapau, in a letter 
to me dated Febrriary 16, I9U8, says " Call, macrophylla var. sin - 
ensis is given as a Bombay plant on the word of Gibson, who found 
it in Kanara; unless we are told which Kanara is meant, we cannot 
draw any definite conclusion, although I aun inclined to think it 
was the North Kanara [Bombay Pres.], in irtiich Gibson did botanlse 

The Griffith 60l;0/l , cited below, was apparently taken from a 
cultivated plant in India, the seeds of which were "ex China". 
Sen Sc Naskar (1965) record the species as cultivated in India, 
Bojer (1837) says that it is cultivated in Mauritius. Bailey 
(1935) reports that it was offered to the horticultural trade at 
that time by the Singapore Botanical Garden, UacMillan (19li3) 
includes it among the species cultivated in the tropics, calling 
it a "Large straggling sh.[njb] or small tree. L, [eaves] large, 
tomentose. Fls . pink, in large cymes. S, China." 

Vernacular names reported for the species are "pan ko fa" 
"sal yeung paan kaau fa", and "tai chung lo kop muk".

Recent collectors refer to this plant as a shrub, 2 — U feet 
tall, growing in woods, open pine woods, and cutover scrubby pine- 
land on serpentine-limonite plateaus, as well as on wet savannas, 
at 800 m. altitude, flowering in April, July, November, and Decem- 
ber, and fruiting in April, July, and December. Webster calls it 
"a rare shrub with pxirple berries"; actually the fruits are drupes. 
Marie-Vic tor in and his associates tell us that it grows with Anas- 
traphia victorinii and in Pinus cubensis woods . The corollas are 
described as having been "pink" on R, A. Howard 5900, "pale, al- 
Bost white" on Mrs. G. C. Bucher lOObb tc lOOv , "purple" on Mrs. G. 
C. Bucher lOOq , lOOu , lOOw, ft lOOy , "pale lavender" on Mrs. G_. £. 
Bucher 100 L, and "brighter lavender, almost purple" on her lOQn . 

Urs. Bucher has provided me with a large series of specimens 
from the Moa region of Oriente, Cuba. For a time I was of the o- 
pinion that her no. 16, at least, was worthy of specific designa- 
tion as C_. inopina Uoldenke, but her series of no. 100 ' s contains 
examples of so many variations and intergradations that it seems 
to me now that all her collections had better be included in Ur- 
ban's C. oblanceolata . A modified description, based on her no, 
16, is as follows: "Shrub; branches slender, gray, densely farina- 
ceous with gray or whitish furf , very much less so in age, obscure- 
ly tetragonal, somewhat flattened and ampliate at the nodes; nodes 
not annulate; principal intemodes 1 — 3 cm. long or the uppermost

and matujre, narrowly elliptic, 2 — U.7 cm, long, 8 — 17 mm. wide, 
blxmt or subacute at the apex, entire and slightly revolute along 
the margins (occasionally strongly revolute toward the base on 
older leaves), minutely white-stellate above when iimiature, glab- 
rescent and shiny in age, often sparsely impressed black-punctate 
toward the base above, acute at the base, very densely stellate- 
t<Mnentellous or -farinaceous with very closely appressed whitish 
or" yellowish furf beneath; midrib slender, impressed above, prom- 
inent beneath; secondaries very short, about 7 per side, ascending, 
arvuate toward the margins and there rather obscurely anastomosing 
beneath; veinlet reticTilation sparse, indiscernible above, only 
the largest portions discernible beneath; inflorescence supra- 
axillary; cymes usually one pair at the termination of the year's 
growth, 2,5 — 3.5 cm, long, 1.5 — 2.5 cm. wide, many-flowered, sev- 
eral times dichotomous, densely yellowish-furfuraceous throughout; 
peduncles slender, about 1 cm. long, flattened; pedicels minute 
or obsolete; bractlets 1 mm. long or less, subulate, densely yel- 
lowish-furfuraceous; prophylla obsolete; calyx cacpanulate, firm, 
sub tetragonal, about 2,5 nmi, long and 2 mm. wide, sparsely granu- 
lar-pulverulent outside, its rim sub truncate, minutely li-apiculate; 
corolla small, hypocrateriform, its tube broadly infundibular, 
cylindric at the base, about 2 mn. long, broadly ampliate above, 
glabrous (or very sparsely granular-pulverulent at the apex out>- 
side), its limb U-parted, the lobes broadly elliptic-Ungulate, a- 
bout 1.2 mm. long and wide, obtuse at the apex, sparsely granular- 
pulverulent outside; stamens U, inserted about 0.5 bib. above the 
base of the corolla-tube; filaments filiform, to 3.5 mm, long, 
glabrous, one sometimes much shorter; anthers oblong, to 1.2 mm, 
long and 0,7 nm. wide, opening by longitudinal slits,

blades decidedly pale beneath, lOOi & lOOJ have them pale and 
with curled edges, lOOm has them extra wide, IQOk has them wide 
and also pale, lOOq has them long and slender, lOOy has all the 
edges of the leaf -blades revolute, 100s exhibits both large and 
small leaves on the same branches (it was collected in November, 
the rainy season), lOOv has wide leaves said by the collector to 
be '^rery tan xmderneath, not gray", lOOw has its leaf -blades sparse- 
ly dentate toward the apex and is said by the collector to have had 
•hiider leaves and scattered flowers", lOOr also shows the leaves 
decidedly toothed at the apex and of it the collector notes "These 
certainly look different — wavy edges — smaller flowers in more 
delicate arrangement" , concerning 100c & lOOd she says "All these 
leaves look different, more veined, rougher and wider", and con- 
cerning lOOg she asks "and what of this leaf, xinder [side] not 
clean tan?" Clement UL22 has its leaf -blades all sharp-pointed at 
the apex, while Le6n & Cl&nent 23128 [July 19h9] has relatively 
huge leaves and certainly does not look like C_. oblanceolata at alll

■BEFORE NATURE DIES" by Jean Dorst, translated by Constance D. 

Shenaan, 352 pp.. lllus., Houghton Mifflin Co., Boston, Mass. 
02107. 1970. $6.95. 

These well expressed thoughts about this most important topic 
first appeared in Switzerland in 1965 under the title of "Avant 
que Nature Meure" . The translator has rendered a faithful and 
smooth language switch such as she previously provided in the 
author's earlier "Migration of Birds" and has also brought statis- 
tical materials up to date. The book is well illustrated with 
colored and black-and-irtiite photographs and line drawings, well 
indexed, and well documented with bibliography. 

Contrasting the minor effects of the smaller number of pre- 
industrial hunans on their environment with that of the burgeoning 
populations of today that are destroying the land, water, air and 
energy sources, the author provides valid, concrete and convincing 
suggestions of how modem man can live as one with nature aixl so 
provide for his oim survival. 

The printing is neat and easily legible. Only two small ezrors 
were noted: on p. 257 the letter "v" is inverted in "have" and on 
p. 323 the "f" is oaiitted in "four". On p. 187 "hrtieat smut" ia 
equated with Lychnis [ AgroataBpa ] githago . 

■MAN AND THE NATURAL IDHID -- An Introdaction to Life ScieiKe" by 
Coleman J. & Olive B. Goin, x & 6Ii3 pp., illus.. The Macmil- 
lan Caapary, Riverside, New Jersey 08075. 1970. $9.95. 

In the preface to this attractive text the authors state that 
they "believe that the general student, to be a well-informed 
citizen, should not only have an understanding of his own body, 
his own reproductive process, and his own inheritance, but should 
also have a sufficient biological background to con^rehend the 
prtjbleiii of population control, the genetic effects of radiation, 
the implications of jxjUution, and the basic concepts of behavior 
[and they] do not feel that such technical details as the ana tony 
of the clam or the whole series of reactions involved in the tri- 
carbo^grlic acid cycle are a necessary part of the core of know- 
ledge of a banker, lawyer, merchant, or housewife." This esp^iaais 
is logical and the approach is simple: in fact, so simple tiiat it 
does not go much beyond the better of the new high school biology 
texts . But the use of this text is far wiser for the non-biology 
major than those texts so burdened in their opening chapters with 
detailed microbiology and biochemistry that the students are not 
"turned on" by this wonderful field of learning. 

Many of the diagrams are ver>' helpful but the one on p. 125

adds nothing but errors. 

The references given after each chapter are usually easily ac> 
cessible and easily readable, but no references are given to such 
a popular scientific work as Dr. Paiil Ehrlich's "Population Bomb" 
and other writings , 

On p. l6l apparently is misspelled and on p. 126 an infinitive 
is split.

With 51 exquisite oversized full plates and 8 text figures, 
with matching and provocative text, and with related literatuire 
references for each, the authors have presented a work of art and

Especially because of the increasing interest in ecology on the 
I>aLrt of the general public as well as that of the scientists and 
because of airfield construction threats, many scientists and 
aroused citizens will be interested in studying and preserving 
this distinctive area in New Jersey. This sturdy paperback book 
will provide valuable and interesting information. It is so good 
to have it freshly available now. It is hoped that the companion 
volume by Witmer Stone, "The Plants of Southern New Jersey, with 
Especial Reference to the Flora of the Pine-Barrens and the Geo- 
graphic Distribution of the Species", may also be made similarly 
available soon. 

Harshberger deals nith the following topics: physiography and 
geography, man's cocnercial effects, various phytogeographical

formations, plants of each area, cone production, insect galls, 
and finally pine-barren plants from an evolutionary viewpoint. The 
many photographs add considerably to the text and in some cases 
show 'hibat was" under a present farn or housing development. 
Nat\irally the plant nomenclature is that of 60 years ago and the 
index is still far from coc9)lete.

This series performs effectively a necessary sei-vice for both 
the "initiated and the uninitiated* who wish to keep abreast of the 
rapid developments in phytochemistry. The eight papers are well 
written, well printed (accessory is misspelled on p. 150), well 
illustrated and well documented with full and recent biblio- 
graphies. All is indexed. 

The topics are: 1 - biochemistry of pollen, 2 - Ci|-<iicarbo3cylic 
acid pathway in photosynthesis affecting different chloroplasts 
and conditions than the Calvin cycles, 3 - fraction-1 protein and 
photosynthetic C02-fixation in chloroplasts, li - mutual and antag- 
onistic relations among certain plants, their insect visitors and 
avoiders, their isoprenoids, and the role and development of 
specialized insect hormones in plants, 5 - non-protein amino acids 
in plants and their finti metabolite actions, 6 - prenyl phytoquin- 
ones including the role polyprenyl quinones as redox carriers in 
electron transplant and coupling agents from it to phosphoryla- 
tion in mitochondria and chloroplasts, 7 - ethylene with its 
abscissic and fruit ripening actions, and 8 - limonoids limited 
to the Meliaceae and the Rutaceae and quassinoids limited to the 
Slnaroubaceae . 

■THE INDUCTION OF FLCMERIMG — Some Case Histories" edited by L. 
T. Evans, U88 pp., illus., Cornell University Press, Ithaca, 
N. I. IhQSO, 1969. $18.50. 

Between the covers of this book is well gathered and carefully 
evaluated a vast amount of valuable material in a most convenient 
form. The case histories by different authors are of Xanthium 
strumarim. Glycine max , Pharbitis nil . Per ilia, Chenopodium ru- 
brua , Lemna perpusilla . Cannabis sativa, Kalanchoe bios sfeldi ana , 
Fragaria , Chrysanthemum morifolivp , Arabidopsis thaliana, Sinapis 
alba, Loliim tanulentum , Silene araeria , Brassica campestris , Ana- 
gallis arvensis, Pisum sativum , Lycopersicon esculentum, Gestmm 
noctumxm and Bryophyllum . Each is discussed with reference to 
experimental work according to the following topics: history, 
growth and growing techniques, inflorescence structure, effects of 
aging, vernalization, photoperiod response, spectral dependence, 
endogenous rhythms, fractional induction, photoperiodic inhibition 

352 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. 21, no. 5 

and dual responses, effects of tenperatiire and mineral nutrition 
and gas composition, translocation of the floral stimulus, graft- 
ing, growth promoters and retardants, florigenlc extracts, in- 
duction of excised apices, and chemical and ultras true txiral 
changes at induction. 

The final chapter is an excellent summary by the editor. "In- 
ductive photoperiodic conditions lead to the export from leaves of 
flor^ stimuli i»hich may differ between plants. Non-inductive 
conditions can lead to the export of inhibitors of flower evoca- 
tion, whose production is also under photopeidodic control. 
Besides these primary photoperiodic stimuli there may also be pro- 
duced a more stable, and possibly more universal, graft- 
transmissible flower hormone. This can be generated, indepen- 
dently of floral evocation, by extended photoperiodic induction 
of leaves ( Perilla ) , or by secondary induction of young leaves 
( lanthium ) or defoliated leaves ( Silene ) , or simply with increas- 
ing age ( Pisum ) . There is thiis a multiplicity of floral stimuli, 
and what is a positive stimulus to floral evocation in one plant 
or condition may be inhibitory to it in another, as are the 
gibberellins and abscisin.** 

Each paper is well printed and has its own detailed biblio- 
graphy, adding so much to all the valuable data given. 

The price is more astronomical than botanicall

The present melastome miscellany continues the notes on 
neotropical species based on data from my European trip vinder 
the auspices of the Ebithsonian Research Foimdatlon and subse- 
quent loans (Phytologia 20: 369-389- 1970; Phytologia 21: II5-

the numerous collections assembled by J. Terborgh, T. R. Dudley, 
J. Knox, M. T. Madison, and F. Wolfe from the region of the 
northern outlier of the Cordillera Vilcabamba; this Peruvian 
material was gathered under the auspices of the National 
Geographic Society and National Science Foundation (Grant GB- 
12378)' Of course too, no melastome article would be complete 
without some inclusion of the taxonomic problems continually 
uncovered by Julian Steyermark and others in Venezuela.

Type Collection: T. R. Dudley 10595 (holotype NA; isotype 
us), collected in dense montane rainforest on steep damp banks 
bordering Knox's Cascade, ca. 1^^ km NE from Hacienda Luisiana 
and Rio Apurimac, Cordillera Vilcabamba, Prov. Convene ion, 
Depto. Cuzco, Peru, 73° 35' W, 12° 35' N, elev. 1T30 m, 28 June 
1968. "Small tree I5-25 ft., 2-6 in. diam.; branches stiffly 
ascending; Ivs. dark green, glossy; fl. in terminal inflores- 
cence, deep pink; anther horns deep purple." 

I^ratype (topotypical) : T. R. Dudley IO583 (NA, US) . 

Meriania boliviensis has relatively broader and basally 
less attenuate leaf blades, with distinctly stellulate -pinoid 
primary vein hairs on the lower surface (a few simple caducous 
setulae intermixed); the hypanthia are densely covered with 
stellulate -pinoid hairs (some hairs with protracted setuliform 
tips) and the densely pinoid -puberulent external calyx teeth 
project ca. 3 mm beyond the interior lobes. Both species have 
the basal connective spur on the small stamens much flattened 
and broadened. Cogniaux' anther dimensions for M. boliviensis 
apparently are from a bud, as mature anthers ( Bang 288 ) are 9 or 
6 mm long (dry), with the dorsal ascending appendage somewhat 
smaller than in M. vilcabambensis . Another relative (ex char.) 
of M. vilcabambensis , the Colombian M. tuberculata Triana, 
differs at least in the (essentiallyT basally T-nerved leaf 
blades with rounded bases, somewhat costate hypanthia, and 
shorter calyx lobes, as well as (if my determinations of several 
recent Antioquia collections are correct: Daniel 1712; Core 767 ; 
Scolnik & Barkley 19Anl97 ; Johnson & Barkley l8c835 ) the stellu- 
late -pinoid trichomes. Both of the recently described Cuzco 
species, M. cuzcoana Wurdack and M. vargasii Wurdack, are quite 
different vegetatively from M. vilcabambensis ; the latter of the 
two has somewhat the same leaf shape, but abundant foliar and 
hypanthial pubescence and much longer external calyx teeth.

The phytogeography and fruit leave no doubts as to the pro- 
per generic disposition of Cogniaux' variety; Macbride was 
correct in his I929 remarks about the distinctness from M. 
fasciculatum . To S. peruviana . I have referred F. Wolfe 12319 
(NA, us), from the slopes of the Cerros del Sira, ^southwestern 
slope of the Rio Llullapichi watershed, Depto. Huanuco, Peru, 
elev. 1290 m ("Ascending herb; fl. white"); the Huanuco material 
has somewhat smaller (to 1.9 X I.3 cm) leaf blades than in the 
Weberbauer collection. Salpinga peruviana differs from S. 
maranonensis Wurdack in the smaller leaf blades with shorter 
(0.5-1 mm long) and less persistent hairs on the upper s\irfaces, 
as well as the smaller flowers and fruit (petals U-5 mm long and

white, rather than l6-19 mm long and pink; frnilting body 4-5 mm 
shorter). The Colombian S. dimorpha (Gleason) Wurdack and the 
Peruvian S. ciliata Pilger differ at least in the larger and 
more prominently toothed leaf blades and larger flowers.

(holotype US 2585847A; isotype YEN), collected near the airport

no\iB, rich green above, pale green below with raised nerves; 
petioles green, with brownish hairs; inflorescence branches pale

Both suggested relatives are erect shrubs with leaf blades 
about 2-3 times as large as in L. eteyermarkll and stamen connec- 
tives not at all prolonged. Leandra arlstigera has longer 
external calyx teeth and longer corolla mucros, while L. 
lasiopoda has shortly pseudo-pllnerved leaf blades with broadly

acute bases. Despite my recent perplexity with this complex 
(Phytologia 20: 3TT-3T8. 1970), L. steyermarkii seems specifi- 
cally distinct. In vegetative pubescence, the San Carlos 
species resembles Clidemia stellipilis (Gleason) Wurdack and 
in habit, Clidemia epibaterium DC.

herrerae Gleason has elmilar foliage but larger trichomes, 
smaller InfloreBcences with pleiostemonoue flowers glomerulate 
only at the branchlet ende^ broader hypanthia^ and relatively 
wider petals (2.5 X 1.6-1.9 nnn); although several recent collec- 
tions have been attributed to M. herrerae . the only one truly 
comparable with the holotype is Vargas l8?S9 (Macchupicchu, 
Cuzco), the other material so identified actually being related 
(undescribed?) to M. eriocalyx Cogn., M. falcata Cogn., and 
M. dipsacea Naud. None of the other Miconia species with gross 
facies similar to M. dudleyi (m. zubenetana Macbride, M. e^ensis 
Cogn.) seems closely related in floral features. The Junin 
collection of M. dudleyi was mistakenly distributed as M. 
scorpioides (S. & C.) Naud.; that widespread species (correctly 
M. trinervia [Sw.] Don ex Loud.) has plinerved leaf blades and 
flowers unilateral on the inflorescence branchlets. 


Miconia pa\ic Iglandulosa Naud . , Ann . Sc i . Nat . ser . 3 Bot . 
16: 183. 1851. 

All of the Poeppig collections (w) cited by Cogniaux show 
nectaries adaxially on the petiole apices or leaf blade bases 
and flowers secund on the ultimate inflorescence branchlets; the 
buds of Mathews 1305 (FI) have anther connectives basally with 
glands. Gleason (Bull. Torrey Club 58: 237. 1931) and Macbride 
(Field Mus. Publ. Bot. I3, U: \'^h. 19^1) had earlier (and 
correctly) synonymized M. aspiazui Macbride and M. nee tar ia 
Macbride under M. spennerpstachya . The leaf shape and degree 
of plinervation are quite variable; M. aspiazui conforms to 
M. spennerostachya var. angustifolia Cogn. Among the available 
collections, the amount of plinervation and also nectary develop- 
ment is least in Klug: 2620. Despite the previous descriptions, 
all material of M. spennerostachya has the petals gi-anulose, the 
styles sparsely to moderately beset with clavate glands basally, 
the ovary apices moderately beset with minute glands, and the 
ovaries predominantly ^-5-celled. Undoubtedly the closest rela- 
tive of M. spennerostachya is M. venulosa Wurdack, with no 
foliar nectary development and eglandular anther connectives; 
recent collections of M. venulosa include Asplund 18898 (Napo- 
Pastaza, Ecuador), Prieto ChuP-10 (Santiago-Zamora, Ecuador), 
and Woytkowski 7539 (Loreto, Peru; distributed as M. prasina ).

Type Collection: J. A. Steyermark & G. S. Bunting 102930 
(holotype US 2585825A; isotype VEN), collected in rainforest 
T-9 km from Yavita on the way to PimichjCn, Terr. Amazonas, 
Venezuela, elev. I25 m, 22 April 1970. "Tree 8 m; leaves 
membranous, dull green above, d\ill green below with dull yellow 
nerves and midrib . " 

Miconia tetragona has sharply tetragonal young branchlets 
with substellulate hairs ca. O.O5 mm diam., hypanthia resinous- 
granulose outside, small anthers not appendaged, and a sub- 
peltate stigma ca. O.7 mm diam. Miconia perturbata Wurdack has 
firmer very shortly blunt -acuminate leaf blades glabrous on the 
lower siarface, larger flowers, and definite triangular calyx 
lobes 0.2-0.3 mm long. Other Miconia species with vegetative 
and inflorescence aspect rather similar to M. biontingii include 
M. regelii Cogn. (inflorescence branches opposite; anthers 
longer), M. tetrasperma Gleason and M. tetraspermoides Wurdack 
(firmer leaf blades, acute petals, long anther thecae), and 
M. pilgeriana Ule (firmer and somewhat larger leaf blades, 
basally exappendiculate anther connectives, and rimose anther 
thecae rounded at the apex). The anther dehiscence in M. 
buntingii was not ascertainable from the mature flower buds. 
MicCTiia eugenioides Triana grows in the same region as M. 
buntingii . but is distinguishable by the finer pubescence, 
firmer leaf blades glabrous on the lower surface, much longer 
acutish petals, lanceate anther thecae with cordulate connec- 
tive appendages, and truncate ovary apices. 


Collected thrice recently at Carpish, Huanuco, Peru 
( Asplund 13118 ; Ferreyra 2295 ; Hutchison . Wright . & Straw 59^0 ) , 
the species is distinguishable by the large firm finely serru- 
late leaf blades with stout petioles and the well -developed 
cauline nodal flaps. Macbride had placed M. malatestae in Sect. 
Miconia ; however, I believe that it is a dioecious species of 
Sect. CremanlTjm, known still only from female collections and 
best placed near M. coelestis (Don) Naud. The type material of 
M. coelestis (FI, OXF) shows similar but smaller flowers (also 

1971 V^urdack, Certamsn iielaatanataceia 359 

female, with abortive anthers) and branchlet nodes without 
developed flaps (the ohscxire interpetiolsir lines marked by 
roughened setvilae O.3-O.5 mm long). 

MICONIA TABAYENSIS Wurdack, nom. nov. 

Miconia micrantha Pittier, Bol. Soc . Venez. Cienc . Nat. 11:

1896) nee M. micrantha Pllger (Verh. Bot. Ver. Brand. h-J: I73. 
1905; M. wittii Ule, nom. nov., Notizbl. Bot. Gart. Berl. 6: 

367. 1915). 

Pittier published a nomen nudum (Cat. Fl. Venez. 2: 236. 
I9I4.7) based upon Gehriger 595 and in the same year the des- 
cription for M. micrantha based on the same collection; the 
Instituto Botanic o material has a third (but unpublished) 
binomial indicated on their specimens. Aristeguieta and 
Steyermark both have indicated (in correspondence) that the 
relative dates of publication in 19^7 cannot be established. 
Miconia tabayensis is distinctive in its lower leaf s\irfaces 
sparsely to moderately setulose with apically irregularly 
branched or barbellate hairs 0.2-0. 7 mm long. Another collec- 
tion (topotypical) of M. tabayensis is Gehriger 382 (distrib- 
uted as M. resimoides Cogn.), with male flowers; Gehriger 595 
is female. Miconia laetevirens Uribe is superficially rather 
like M. tabayensis . but has shorter less barbellate pubescence, 
3-nerved leaf blades, and perfect flowers. Miconia purulensis 
Donn. Smith has pubescence of clavate apically roughened but 
basally smooth hairs and relatively narrower anther thecae 
(1 X 0.3 mm), but is also dioecious. Miconia boliviensis Cogn. 
has shorter (ca. 0.2 ram) clavate-pinoid hairs on the primary 
veins of the lower leaf surfaces, rather densely robust- 
ciliolate leaf margins, and considerably larger flowers. 
Miconia acanthocoryne Wurdack has thicker 3-nerved caudate - 
ac\janinate leaf blades and perfect flowers; the original stamen 
dimensions given (Phytologia 5: 128) were erroneously magnified 
by a factor of 3-

The type collections (OXF, P) of all the taxa have been 
examined; Cognia\ix evidently never saw the Pavon type of M. 
latif olia . which is best matched in modern collections by Tovar 
k080 (UST from Huancavelica, Peru. The degree of setula develop- 
ment on stems and lower leaf surfaces is quite variable, but the 
floral featvires (especially the short anthers) seem constant. 
Both M. alpina Cogn. and M. fruticulosa Cogn. (material not at 
hand) must be evaluated in connection with M. latif olia . Miconia 
griffisii Macbride (isotype US) has hypanthia more -or -less setu- 
lose and branchlets densely setulose, but does not seem to 

360 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. ZL, no. 6 

differ in internal floral featxires from M. latifolia ; it is 
perhaps infraspecifically distinct. Macbride described M. 
ottikeri as with 5-lobed fruiting calyces; however the US 
isotype has definitely U -me rous fruit. In M. ottikeri (but 
with no real conviction as to the specific distinctness from 
M. latifolia ) . I have placed two recent collections (both with 
larger leaf blades than the type; style and filaments glabrous): 
Wurdack 1688 and Sanchez 357 . both from the Cerros de Calla- 
Calla, Amazonas, Peru. 


Miconia integrifolia Cogn., DC. Mon. Phan. J: 936. I89I. 

Both types (G-BOISS, OXF) actually are identical, probably 
parts of the same collection. The species differs from M. 
latifolia in the densely pinoid-puberulous branchlets, entire 
leaf blades, slightly smaller flowers, densely (rather than 
sparsely) glandular -puberulous styles, and galeate (rather than 
capitellate) stigmas. The original publication by Don was as 
Cremanium thyrsiflorum ; the chain of misspellings (as 
" thyrsoidea ") was started by De Candolle (Prodromus 3: 19I. 
1828) and followed by Naudin, Cogniaux, and Macbride but not 
Triana; Naudin, rather than Triana, should be regarded as the 
combining author (having cited De Candolle who in turn cited 
Don), despite his spelling of the epithet. Macbride 's note 
about the affinities with £4. flavescens Cogn. was a perceptive 
remark; actually both M. flavescens and M. mandonii Cogn. have 
^-merous flowers and the latter species also has galeate stig- 
mas. As alluded by Macbride in the Flora of Peru, his photo- 
graph (17179) and that of Gleason (7-2) from the Berlin herb- 
arium are actually of M. nitida (Don) Naud., rather than M. 
thyrsiflora . Another Pa von specimen mixup is with M. laurina 
(Don) Naud.; the Pavon collections (OXF, US, the latter ex 
Herb. Lambert) represent a form of M. media (Don) Naud. with 
essentially entire -margined leaf blades. Probably M. laurina 
should be regarded as a subspecies of M. media . but more 
collections are needed (cf. Fhytologia 9: 421. 196^). 


Among New World melastomes, two characters rarely occur, 
haplostemony and capsular fruit developing from an inferior 
ovary. The conjunction of these features appears only in 
Alloneuron Pilger, Cyphostyla Gleason, and Allomaieta Gleason. 
Other genera with haplostemony (no trace of the antepetalous 
stamens or staminodia) include Poteranthera Bongard (one of the 
two species), Siphanthera Pohl ex DC. (a few species), Monochae - 
t\im Naud. (a few species), and Miconia R. & P. (one species, M. 
tetrandra [Sw. ] Naud.), all except Miconia with superior ovaries 
and capsular fruits. Diplostemonous genera with inferior 
ovaries followed by capsular fruit ai^ Tateanthus Gleason and 
(ex descr.) Merianthera Kuhlm. Pittier (Journ. Wash. Acad. 
Sci. 19: I8U. 1929) ascribed leathery capsules to Anaectocalyx 
latifolia Cogn.; the ciirrently available collections of 


Wurdack. Certamen Melastomataceis 361 

Anaectocalyx are Insufficient to affirm or deny this featvire. 
Cyphostyla and Allomaieta were segregated by Gleason into a 
separate tribe, Cyphostyleae ; both genera have simple smooth 
trichomes and relatively large flowers with exappendiculate 
anthers and 5 -celled ovaries. Hie present collections of the 
Cyphostyleae are quite inadequate for further generic elucida- 
tion; however, Cyphostyla hirsuta Gleason is currently being 
evaluated by Charles Schnell in connection with Conostegia 
myriasporoides Triana. 

While Macbride was studying the synonvmy of Meiandra Mgf . 
under Alloneuron (Trop. Woods IT: 13 . 1929), the branchlet wood 
structure was found by Record to conform with that of the 
Miconieae rather than Memecyleae ; further study of the anatomy 
of mature wood is needed, a recent sample having been collected 
with Cuatrecasas 15764 (USw 33129) . In superficial vegetative 
facies, the two species of Alloneurcm from lowland Amazoniaji 
Peru and Colombia resemble Gesneriaceae ; both species have 
stellulate as well as simple smooth hairs and pedicellate 
flowers unilaterally arranged on the inflorescence branchlets. 
The four species now being described differ from the original 
two in the pinoid to squamate trichomes (in the inflorescences 
microscopically and very caduco\isly gland -tipped) and nearly 
sessile glomerulate flowers (the glomerules perhaps actually 
with unilateral flowers borne on a much shortened axis, but 
this feature not really evaluable superficially in pressed 
specimens); nonetheless, in internal floral features, all six 
species are much alike. 

While Pilger described A. ulei Pilger as with 2-celled 
ovaries (followed by Macbride in the Flora of Peru), Markgraf's 
diagnoses for both species of Meiandra cited 3-celled ovaries; 
I believe that Markgraf's description of this feature is the 
correct one for the genus. The capsular dehiscence is at first 
central through the hypanthium wall, at length extending to the 
capsule apex; the seeds are pyramidate and smooth. As to 
flower -mery, A. ulei was cited as 4-nierous, but the synonymous 
Meiandra minor Mgf. was described as 5-merous; in the only 
available collection of A. ulei ( Cuatrecasas 88^7. from 
Florencia, Caqueta, Colombia), agreeing perfectly otherwise 
with the descriptions and type photograph (Macbride 17396), 
five petals are visible on each of three flowers and the ovary 
is definitely 3-locular. An isotype (NY) of A. maius (Mgf.) 
Mgf. ex Macbr. has been examined. The three EL Valle (Colombia) 
collections of Alloneiu-on have been generic irritations for me 
during the last I5 years; the Ayacucho (Peru) specimens, with 
both flowers and fruit, provided the correlative spark. 
The species of Alloneuron may be keyed as follows: 
1. Leaf blades eqxially pinnate -veined thro\ighout; cauline 
internodal pubescence stipitate -stellulate (strongly 
barbellate at the apex) or stellulate. 

2. Tree 30 m; leaf blades 5.5-9 cm wide A. maius

CLIDEMIA RUBRA (Aubl.) Mart, and allies 

As is evident from the comments and classifications of 
previous workers in the melastomes, the complex of species 
arovind spp. ^0-^6 of Cogniaux' monograph is a taxonomically 
recalcitrant group; both Naudin (Ann. Sci. Nat. ser. 3 Bot. 17: 
331-332. 1852) and Gleason (Brittonia 3: I32. 1939) discussed 
the vegetative and floral variability. The floral details 
(especially the hypanthial, toral, and ovarial pubescence) 
recently have been examined by me on several hundreds of collec- 
tions, with only a few useful features adduced. Omitted from 
the present discussion are C. ulei Pilger and C. uribei Wurdack 
(which are reasonably distinct \inits) and C. aphanantha Sagot, 
C. micrantha Sagot, and C. francavillana C ogn . ( i nade quat e ly 
known, with few or no topotypical recent collections). Also 
not considered is C. microthyrsa R. 0. Williams (with longish- 
pedicellate larger flowers ) ; Irwin et al 5^^96 and '5'51'52 from 
Suriname, as well as Krukoff 11822 from Maranhao, Brazil, are 
tentatively referred here. The C. rubra complex in Venezuela 
may be keyed as follows : 
1. Petals each with an external infra -apic ally inserted gland- 

\ilar setula 0.4-0.8 mm long; ovary apex glabrous 

C . monantha 

1. Petals glabrous; ovary apex usually setulose. 
2. Petioles less than 1 cm long.

the distinctly petlolate leaves (with rounded blade bases and 
basal primary veins), petals each with a subapical gland -tipped 
setula, and glabrous ovaries. Most of the Venezuelan specimens 
and one Costa Rican collection have some of the hypanthial hairs 
gland -tipped, but otherwise C. monantha is quite \iniform. The 
species ranges from Mexico (Cerro San Martin, Vera Cruz, Salle 
an.. BM), Honduras (Cortes, Molina 11^31 ] Olancho, Molina 
84^), Nicaragua, Costa Rica (Guanacaste, Schnell 3Tl J San 
Ramon, Tonduz 1TW2 . Brenes 1^296 and 1^300 ) . Panama ^Panama, 
Cerro Azul, Duke 93.35 ). and Venezuela (Carabobo, Falcon, Lara, 
Miranda, Yaracuy) . 

CLIDMIA RUBRA (Aubl.) Mart. 

The Aublet type (bm) shows the largest leaves with petioles 
ca. 0.5 cm long and narrowly ovate blades 8 X h.^ cm (ro\inded at 
the base, not or scarcely plinerved), as well as hypanthial 
hairs in part gland -tipped; reasonably good vegetative matches 
(also with gland -tipped hypanthial hairs) are Tut in 6l9 (BM) and 
Schomburgk 95(98) (BM, P, W) . Of the synonyms cited by Cogniaux, 
Me la stoma sessiliflora Vahl (c), C. heteromalla D. Don (OXF), 
and Sagi^ea c ognata Steud. (w) agree with the Aublet concept; 
to this synonymy should be added C. platyphylla (Naud.) Cogn., 
the Ferrei:.''a holotype (P) of which is well matched by Schomburgk 
6^8 (P) . As thus restricted, the species is known by recent 
collections from eastern Colombia (Amazonas, Schultes & Lopez 
l6kkl and 164^3 ; Meta, Hermann 11203 ). Venezuela (Amazonas), 
Guyana (de la Cruz 1T58 . 2^70 7 3987 ; Graham 233 ; Hitchcock 
171^9 ) . Suriname ( Maguire & Stahel 25039 ). French Guiana 
( Broadway l6l ) . Brazil (Amazonas, Fromm 1420 . Santos 1^68 . Sota 
13063 ; Para. Spruce 776 ). Peru (Loreto, Martin & Lau-Cam 1197 . 
Ferreyra 7847 , Killip & Smith 29213 . Dodson 2817 ) , and Bolivia 
(Mapiri region, Buchtien 989 . 990 . I716 ) . but not Central 


Among the Cogniaux -cited synonyms not here placed under 
C. rubra (vide supra), Don's binomial is the oldest available 
one. Here belongs also Saj^raea c olumnaef olia DC. (holotype M) . 
The varieties described by Naudin, Cogniaux, S. Moore,. and 
Hoehne iinder C. rubra are for a monographer to evaluate and 
transfer. As defined here, a vegetatively extraordinary welter 
remains; a few of the collections ( Oersted 283I and Schnell 
500. from Costa Rica; Stern, Eyde . & Ayensu 195^ and Davidson 
676 . from Chiriqu:!!^, Panama; Haught 5278 , from Cauca, Colombia; 
Delgado 250. from Cerro Avila, Venezuela) have nearly or quite 
glabrous ovary apices, but vegetatively fall within C. sericea 
sens. lat. From notes made in London, the holotype (BM) of 
Melastoma verticillata Miller is well matched by Philipson 237I 
and Linden 1155 ; the use of Miller's epithet is preempted in 
Clidemia . 


1971 Wurdack, Certamen kelaatomataceis 367 

Because of the basally attenuate distinctly pllnerved 
leaf blades with distinct petioles and non-glandvaar hypanthlal 
hairs, £. attenuata has been maintained as a species, (but with 
no real conviction), good matches for the Finlay type (P) being 
Covan & Wurdack S15^^ (Amazonas, Venezuela) and A. C. Smith 3.306 
(Kanuku Movintains, Gviyana); Webster & Miller 995.3. froea 
Trinidad, perhaps also belongs here. Urban (Symb. Ant. 3= ^1- 
48. 1902) noted that the Finlay collections at Paris, pur- 
portedly from "St. Ihomas", were probably collected in Trinidad. 
In the Flora of Trinidad & Tobago, R. 0. Williams synonymized 
C. attenuata vmder C. rubra . In Central America, a vegeta- 
tlvely rather similar population occurs (the petioles somewhat 
shorter, the blades usually smaller), but the ovaries are 
glabrous (Mexico, Reko 3583 ; Honduras, Williams & WllliamB 
I83M1. Molina & Molina 1^1129. Molina 10095 . Meyer 9923 ; Costa 
Rica, Skutch 2260 ; Panama, Blum & Godfrey 1736. Correa & 
Dressier 465 ) • 


As Indicated in the Flora of Trinidad St Tobago, £. 
bonplandll (Naud.) Cogn. is synonymous with C. deb ills . Die 
species is known from Trinidad, Venezuela (D. Federal, Bolfvar), 
and Brazil (Ceara, Pemambuco, Bahia). Because of the distinct- 
ly pllnerved leaf blades and glandvilar-Betulose hypanthia in 
C. aphanantha Sagot, I still have reservations about following 
R. 0. Williams with a further synonym under C. deb ills .

The type collection of C. fendlerl (BR, K, NY) has egland- 
ular or very sparsely gland-tipped hypanthlal hairs, but more 
recent collections have varying proportions of s\ich glandular 
trlchomes. The holotype (P) of C. rarlflora (Bonpl.) Cogn. has 
short (0.3-0.5 mm) caullne pubescence, nearly glabrous (except 
for the minute glands) upper leaf surfaces, and lower leaf 
surfaces with the setulae mostly confined to the primary axid 
secondary veins; however, in other features (pubescence quality, 
fine leaf venulatlon, glandular -setulose hypanthia, inflores- 
cence form), it conforms at least specifically to C. fendlerl . 
Until topotyplcal material is collected to fix the variability 
limits, no subspecific recognition seems warranted for the 
"Cumana" plant*. Despite Cogniaxix' monograph separation, 
C. fendlerl is certainly very close to C. debllls. differing 
in the more evolved Inflorescences.

Between August 2 and 3I, 196?, with the help of a $5,000 grant 
from the National Park Service, The Nature Conservancy sponsored a 
scientific expedition into Kipahulu Valley, Island of Maui, Hawai- 
ian Islands. Dr. Richard E. Warner, Foundation of Environmental Bi- 
ology, Berkeley, California, was leader of about twenty scientists 
of various biological disciplines and a variable number of guides, 
* paniola and porters. The specialists in the main volunteered 
their services or their institutions lent these men for the expedi- 


The Conservancy copyrighted the result of the study in I968 
under the title "Scientific Report of the KIPAHULU VALLEY EXPEDI- 
TION, Sponsored BY: THE NATURE CONSERVANCY. Edited By: Richard E. 
Warner, Ph. D, Expedition Leader." The 18^ loose-leaf pages, meas- 
uring 8 1/2 by 11 inches, are bound in a Manilla cover. There is a 
panoramic photograph of the valley itself, eight of expedition mem- 
bers, about ^9 showing beautifully the type of vegetation, three 
about the endemic "picture-winged" fruit flies, and four of close- 
ups of birds. In addition there are full-page maps of Kipahulu Val- 
ley showing expedition trails and locations of the three base 
camps; of soils; a topographic vegetation profile; and of vegetation 
respectively of the lower, the central, and the upper part of the 

Kipahulu Valley extends from sea level to 7,350 feet, more or 
less in a northwesterly direction, joinitig Haleakala National Park 
at its eastern end hundreds of feet above Paliku Cabin. The two mile 
wide valley funnels the trade winds. Its eight mile length is con- 
fined by two very steep ridges clothed largely with tapestry for- 
ests, here and there broken by shrubby ledges and some clif"fs. The 
floor consists largely of two nearly parallel, sloping flats, the 
one about 700 feet higher than the other, especially toward the mid- 
dle -makai end. This unusual geologic structure is explained by the 
formation eons ago of a deeply eroded valley on Haleakala Volcano's 
flank followed by a period of filling by lava flows. During quies- 
cence of volcanic activity, one side of the partly filled valley was 
then badly eroded by the forerunner of Kaukauai Stream. With a 
fresh period of activity, this new valley within Kipahulu was part- 
ly filled with veneers of lava. Thus the higher flat, contrary to 
expectation, is much older than the lower one. 

The lower reaches of the valley from a biotic standpoint are not 
too interesting, being pasture overgrown with lemon guava and other

became the vernacular name for a man of this profession.

exotics. Nevertheless, geologically the area is locally interesting 
and delightful with the stream forming a series of pools - seven 
were "sacred" to the Hawaiians - of considerable fame but too pro- 
fane for discussion in a botanical review. 

The rest of the valley to the inversion layer at about 7,000 
feet is a dense rainforest. Below a transition band between 3,000 
and '4-, 000 feet, koa (Acacia) is the predominant tree; above, ohia 
lehua ( Metrosideros ) predoTiinaies, giviiis way mauka as the terrain 
becomes increasingly dry to such sclerophyllous shrubs as Dodonaea, 
Railliardia , Styphelia and Vaccinium . The summit slope is crowned^ 
with windy flats of the endemic bunchgrass ( Peschampsia havraiiensis 
f. haleakalensis (Skottsb.) St. John (incorrectly identified as D, 
nubigena ) inter'spersed here and there with endemic bracken ( Pterid -

(Cav.) Link native to the Hawaiian Islands as well as to the Andes, 
and the endemic Neurophyllodes tridens (Hillebr.) Deg. & Greenw. 

Though terrestrial shrubs and herbs as well as lianes and epi- 
phytes abound between 3f000 and 6,000 feet, the warm rainfall of 
perhaps 200 inches annually, augmented by abundant fog drip, stimu- 
lates bacterial decay and dissolution. As a result, the water-dren- 
ched soil is practically devoid of litter and except :.ona]]y poor in 
saprophytic fungi. Above 6,000 feet, with less rainfall and cooler 
weather, the layer of litter can be two inches thick overlying 
three inches of humus. Saprophytic fungi are abundant, having avail- 
able sustenance o

126 (Pigs: When Astelia species are terrestrial, feral pigs feed on 

the rhizomes and young leaves, often destroying the colonies. 
They also penetrate the higher stretches of cinder-covered ter- 
rain where the endemic bracken can survive with its under- 
ground rhizomes to the exclusion of other vascular plants. 
Pigs, with great ease, root out the rhizomes from the friable 
ash, pumice and cinders for food©) 

(Rats: Though certainly not in the Islands previous to the com- 
ing of the Polynesians in their huge double canoes, the Poly- 
nesian rat ( Rattus exulans var. hawaiiensis Ellerman) in the 
eating of the orange, fleshy bracts and later of the sticky, 
ripe inflorescences of the Freycinetia have certainly aided the 
endemic crow (Ccrvus tropicus Gmelin) - now extinct except for 
one bird in captivity and perhaps a dozen wild on the Island of 
Hawaii - pollinate and later disseminate this liane.) 
129 (The rediscovery of the Maui nukupuu bird ( Hemignathus lucidus 
var. aff inis Rothschild) and the sighting of the Maui parrot- 
bill ( Pseudonestor xanthophrys Rothschild) is not only of im- 
portance ornithologically, but of major importance botanicallyo 
The first bird was last seen in I896; and the second probably 
in 1928, if we can believe the report of a sighting in neigh- 
boring Kaupo Gap by a surveying party. Many drepaniid birds, 
all endemic to the Archipelago, have evolved bills beautifully 
''.urved to penetrate the curves of mints, lobelias of many gen- 
era, and Camphusia for nectar. According to W.E. Banko (Condor 
73:121. 1971.), a member of the Expedition, "Preservation of 
the ecological integrity of Haleakala's windward forest is 
thus of paramount importance to the survival of at least three, 
and possibly as many as six, Hawaiian birds." 

One of the main objectives of the expedition was "to prepare a re- 
port of the findings for the Nature Conservancy and the U.S. Depart- 
ment of Interior, including recommendations for acquisition, use, and 
longterm conservation cf the area." The part about birds and picture- 
winged Pros o phi la , we believe, will be arguments for politicians and 
intelligent laymen alike to conserve the area urider the wing of the 
National Park Service. These are precisely the individuals who, with 
contacts and funds, can best implement a project to a successful con- 
clusion. But the botanical part of the report is sorely disappoint- 
ing and not of much help. No striking plant, like a striking bird, 
was noted as threatened with extinction even though many, many kinds 
belong in this categoryl It took Dr. St. John only until April 1970 
to describe and illustrate over a dozen novelties from the area (See 
Pac. Sci. 25:39-79. 19710) such as: Panicum lamiatile , Panicum lus - 
triale , Peperomia kipahuluensis , Pelea anapanapaensi s , Pelea clusii -

Had the importance of plants been stressed as much as of birds and 

insects, vfould not the report have been more effective'' According to 
a local newspaper article dated April 3, 1971» " - - - the Nat'ore Con- 
servancy in three years raised $1.2 million to buy '4-, 000 acres in 
Kipahulu Valley to add to Haleakala National Park on the promise the 
State would add 5»000 acres to it. So far, the land has not been 
signed over by Gov. John A. Burns. And the lack of action is holding 
up a further fund-raising effort which the Nature Conservancy hopes 
will add 'lOO more acres to the park." Nero played on his Stradivari- 
us while Rome biorned to destruction. Will History repeat itself, and 
Kipahulu be destroyed?

Jackson (1893) credits a " Callicarpa arborea Wall." to "'^^fall. 
Cat. n. 1826, partim" and reduces it to synonymy under C^ vestita 
Wall. Actually, Wallich proposed no such homonym. In the refer- 
ence cited he plainly accredits C. arborea to Roxburgh, citing 7 
specimens for what he regarded as the typical form of the species, 
and then proposes a variety which he designated " t vestita " . It 
is certainly the latter taxon to which Jackson refers.

Merrill's original (1919) description of this species is as 
follows: "A shrub, the branchlets, petioles, inflorescences, and 
lower surface of the leaves densely and uniformly cinereous- 
stellate-pubescent, the indumentum covering the entire surface. 
Branches terete, pale brownish, glabro\is . Leaves elliptic to ob- 
long-elliptic, subcoriaceous, 5 to 8 cm long, 2 .5 to k cm wide, 
the apex rounded, obtuse, or sometimes subacute, base usually ob- 
tuse, margins entire below, in the upper part distinctly denticu- 
late, the upper surface brownish-olivaceous, glabrous or when 
young stellate-pubescent along the midrib; lateral nerves 5 to 7 
on each side of the midrib, curved, distinct as are the primary 
reticulations; petioles 5 to 10 mm long. Cymes axillary, pe- 
duncled, dichotomous, up to 2.5 cm wide, the peduncles about 1.5 
cm long; bracts linear-lanceolate, acuminate, 2 to 2.5 mm long; 
pedicels 0.5 mm long or less. Flowers rather crowded, pink. 
Calyx cup-shaped to obconic, about 1,6 nm long, densely stellate- 
pubescent, the teeth U, short. Corolla glabrous, 2.5 mm long, 
the lobes equal, orbioular-ovate, rounded, nearly 1 mm in diam- 
eter. Filaments and style 5 to 6 nm long. Fruit globose, dark- 
brown and rugose when dry, about 2 mm in diameter." 

The type was collected by Maximo Ramos [ Herb. Philip. Bur. Sci. 
32921] at Burgos, in Ilcos Norte Province, Luzon, Philippine Is-

lands, on July 27, 1918, growing in dry thickets at low altitudes, 
and was deposited in the herbarium of the Philippine Bureau of 
Science at Manila, now lamentably destroyed, Merrill (1919) re- 
cords the vernacular name "anayop" and notes that "The alliance 
of this species is manifestly with Callicarpa blsuicoi Rolfe, from 
irtiich it is especially distinguished by its elliptic to oblong- 
elliptic, usually rounded or obtuse, never acuminate leaves." 

The species is known thus far only from the original collec-

Merrill's original (1918) description of this species is: 
"Frutex ad 3 m. altus, subglaber, raraulis junioribus parcissime 
et decidue stellato-pubescentibus; foliis brevissime petiolatis, 
anguste lanceolatis, usque ad 12 cm. longis et 1.5 cm. latis, 
chartaceis, utrinque subaequaliter auigustatis, acuminatis, basi 
cuneatis, margine in 3/U superiore parte distincte serrulatis, 
supra glabris, subtus glandulosis, glabris, vel junioribus par- 
cissime stellato-pubescentibus, nervis utrinque 7 ad 9, curvato- 
adscendentibus, tentiibus; cymis axillaribus depauperatis, 2- vel 
3-floris, brevissime pedunculatis, pedicellis glabris, circiter 
k mm. longis; fructibus globosis, 3 ad 3.5 mni. diametro, glabris, 
calycis persistentibus, glabris, truncatis . A slender shrub, 2 
to 3 m. high, in age glabrous or nearly so, the young branchlets 
sparingly stellate-pubescent. Branches slender, terete, smooth, 
glabrous, grayish. Leaves narrowly lanceolate, chartaceous, 6 
to 12 cm. long, 0.8 to 1.5 cm. wide, narrowed at both ends, the 
upper surface glabrous, smooth, eglandular, brownish-olivaceous, 
shining, the lower surface slightly paler, distinctly pitted- 
glandiolar, glabrous, or when young sparingly stellate-pubescent 
near the midrib, the base cuneate, the apex rather slenderly but 
bluntly acuminate, the margins on the upper two- thirds distinct- 
ly serrulate; lateral nerves 7 to 9 on each side of the midrib, 
slender, curved-ascending, anastomosing, the reticulations slen- 
der, not prominent; petioles 2 mm. long or less. Cymes axillary, 
few, subsessile or shortly peduncled, depauperate, 2- or 3- 
riowered, the pedvincles 2 mm. long or less, the pedicels not ex- 
ceeding U mm. in length, glabrous. Fruit globose or subglobose, 
dark-brown when dry, 3 to 3.5 nan. in diameter, glabrous, the per- 

1971 Moldenke, Monograph of CalLLcarpa 379 

aiatent calyx trvmcate, glabrous." 

The type of the species was collected by Rimer Drew Merrill 
( no. 11060 ) in thickets along small streams, at an altitude of a- 
bout 900 meters, Loh Fau Mountain (Lofaushan), Kwangtung, China, 
on August 23, 1917, and was deposited in the herbarium of the 
Philippine Bureau of Science at Manila, now destroyed. The col- 
lector notes that the species is "rare, but a single plant seen. 
The alliance of this species is manifestly with the form common- 
ly known as Callicarpa purpurea Juss., but which should be known 
as C_. dichotcma (Lour.) Raeusch. It differs in its relatively 
much narrower leaves, and depauperate, subsessile, very few- 
flowered cymes," 

Iimnature green fruit was collected in August. Bakhuizen van 
den Brink (1921) reduces the species to synonymy under what he 
calls C^ japonica var. dichotoma (Lour.) Bakh. Chang (1951) 
cites only the original collection and compares it with both C. 
dichotoma (Lour.) K. Koch smd with C. brevipes (Benth.) Hance. 

The Tsang 213U6 , distributed as C. oligantha , is actually C. 
japonica var. angustata Rehd. 

In all, 2 herbarium specimens, including the type, and 2 moun- 
ted photographs of C . oligantha have been examined by me .

Previous to receiving good material of this taxon and of the 
so-called C. iriomotensis Masam. and C. okinawensis Nakai from my 

380 PHYTOLOGIA Vol. ZL, no. 6 

esteemed friend and colleague. Dr. E. H. Walker, I had tentative- 
ly regarded them as 3 distinct and valid species. Now, however, 
I feel that Hatusitna (1959) is amply justified in reducing them 
to a single species with two varieties. He says "Above three 
forms of C. oshimensis which are distinguished as the following 
analytical key are not different in their essential characters, 
such as size of cymes, flowers and fruits, and the indumentum of 
branchlets and leaves, though size of leaves and cymes as well as 
the serration of leaves are considerably variable. Therefore, it 
seems advisable to reduce the above two forms from Okinawa and 
Yaeyama to the varietal rank, as the distinguishing characters 
mentioned above are very variable as in the other species of C al- 
ii carpa ." He distinguishes the 3 taxa as follows: 
1. Leaf -blades regularly rhombic-ovate, 2 — 7 cm. long, acuminate 
at the apex, sharply and regularly coarse-serrate along the 

margins, cuneate at the basej cymes 1 — 3 cm. long 

C. oshimensis « 
la. Leaf -blades rarely rhombic-ovate, often with shorter acumens 
and smaller, denser, and irregular serration. 
2. Leaf-blades ovate to ovate-lanceolate, 2 — U.5 cm. long, with 
smaller and denser serration; cymes usually less than 1 cm. 

long C . oshimensis var . okinawensis . 

2a. Leaf -blades ovate to ovate-oblong or rarely obovate-oblong, 
3 — 10 cm. long, with larger and coarser serration; cymes 

usually more than 1 cm. long 

C. oshimensis var. iriomotensis . 
Masamune (19^5) records the vernacular name "osimamurasaki" 
for C. oshimensis and gives its distribution as "Amarai-osima (leg. 
Igoma) et (leg. Tasiro in G. Herb. Formos . n. 27877); Okinawa: 
Kunigani; Iheyazima; Iriomote? . Distr. Endonic." Hatusima (19^9) 
gives the distribution of the t:^'pical form as only Amaini-oshima 
and Tokunoshima Islands in the Ryukyu Archipelago. 

Wilson found the plant fruiting in February. Llaterial has 
been misidentif ied and distributed in herbaria as C_, shikokiana 
Mak. On the other hand, the Gressitt 532 & 563 , ItS s.n. [23. V. 
1936], and Kawagoe s.n. [July 27, 1919], distributed as typical 
C. oshimensis , are actually var, iriomotensis (Masam.) Hatus. 

In all, 3 herbarium specimens and 2 mounted photographs of the 
type collection of G. oshimensis have been examined by me.

For a statement on how this variety differs from the typical 
form of the species, see xinder C. oshimensis in this seiries of 
notes. Recent collectors describe the plant as a bush or shrub, 
1.8 — 6 m. tall, the stems 1.5 — 2 cm. in diameter, the branches 
spreading horizontally, and the (immature) fruit green or pale- 
green and moderately small. The corollas are described as "pink" 
on Hatus ima I86OO . 

The vsiriety has been collected in the shade of large trees, 
in forests, at the edges of fringing forests, and in Yfet gulch 
bottoms in dense low scrubby forests, at altitudes of 12 — 200 m., 
flowering in May and June, and frtiiting in June, August, and No- 
vember. Fosberg says that it is "occasional in undergrowth on 
broad or high densely wooded ridges", while Hatusima refers to it 
as a "common shrub" on Iriomote. Masamune (1955) says that it is 
endemic to Isjigaki, Iriomote, and Yonaguni in the Sakashlma 
group of the Ryukyu Island Archipelago and records the vernacular 
name "Irionote-murasaki-sikibu" . hatusima (1959) lists it only 
from Iriomote and IshigaJci, 

Material of this taxon has been misidentified and distributed 
in herbaria under the names C_. japonica Thunb., C_. okinawensis

13577 & 2li357 , distributed as var. iriomotensis , are actually var, 
okinawensis (Nakai) Hatus. 

In all, 13 herbariimi specimens of var. iriomotensis have been 
examined by me .

The characters by which this variety is distinguished from C. 
oshimensis Hayata and C. oshimensis var. iriomotensis (Masaim,) 
Hatus. are enumerated in my discussion of C. oshimensis in this 
present series of notes. Nakai (1928), Masamune (1955) , and 
Hatusima (1959) all agree that the variety is endemic to Okinawa. 
Masamune records the vernacular name "kogomemurasaki" and cites 
Masamxine & Siniabukuro s.n. [Yonawadake, Aug. 6, 193li] • He says 
that the " C. mollis Sieb. & Zucc." of Matsumura (1899), Kuroiwa 
(1900), E. H. Wilson (1920), Matsumura (1912), and Sakaguchi 
(192li), insofar as they refer to Ryukyxi Islands specimens, is ac- 
tually C. oshimensis var. okinawensis . The C. mollis accredited 
to Koorders and referred to in the synonymy above, is actually a 
synonym of C. caudata Maxim., that credited to Shirasaira is 3cC. 
shirasawana Mak., and that of Requien and of V^illdenow is C. 
acuminata H.B.K., while that of Siebold & Zuccarini is a valid 
species . 

Recent collectors describe this plant as a shrub, 2 m. tall, 
growing in the shade of trees, along forest paths, in small 
clearings, and at the edges of low spinnies, at 100 — 200 m. alti- 
tude, flowering in May, and fruiting in July. On Yonakuni Island 

1971 Moldenke, Monograph of Callicarpa 383 

it is said by Hatusima to be "frequent in mountain thickets", but 
on Iriomote he reports it as "a rare shrub" . The corollas are 
described as "pink" on Hatusima l80Ul » 

Material of this variety has been misidentified and distribu- 
ted in herbaria under the names C. oshimensis Kayata, C. oshimen - 
sis var. iriomotensis (Masam.) Hatvis., and C. ohshimensis var. 
irioraotensis (llasam.) Katus . On the other liand, the Koidzxmi s, 
n, [1 — 20 .VII. 1923] , distributed as var. okinawensis , is actually 
a mixture with var. iriomotensis . 

In all, 16 herbarium specimens and 1 mounted photograph of var. 
okinawenais have been examined by me.

The original description of this species (1928) reads as fol- 
lows in the English version: "A shnib about 3 m high; the thicken- 
ed branchlets and the lower surface of the leaves densely fulvo- 
tomentose with rather soft plumose and stellate hairs; branches 
terete or somewhat compressed at the nodes, pale grayish. Leaves 
chartaceous to subcoriaceous, broadly oblong-elliptic, 27 to 39 cm 
long, lU to 21 cm wide, undiilate-dentate, apex acutely acuminate, 
base acute, the upper surface olivaceous, glabrous, smooth, shin- 
ing, the lower surface pale, somewhat yellowish, not at all glan- 
dular, very densely stellate-plumose-pubescent; lateral nerves a- 
bout 10 on each side of the midrib, very prominent, the reticula- 
tions distinct; petioles densely tomentose, somewhat angled, U to 
6 cm long. Cymes axillary, many-flowered, dichotomous, very 
densely tomentose, pedunculate, 6 to 8 cm long, 5 to 10 cm wide. 
Flowers crowded, their pedicels 0.5 to 1 mm long; calyx membrana- 
ceous, cup-shaped, shortly U-lobed, tomentose, about 1.75 nm long; 
corolla U-lobed, 3 to 3.5 mm long, 2.5 to 3 mm in diameter, the 
lobes 1.25 to 1.5 mm long, about 1 mm wide, oblong -ovate, obtuse. 
Stamens ii, exserted, the filaments U to U.5 nm long; anthers ob-

long, 1.2^ to mm long. Fruit globose, glabrous, 2 to 2,5 mm 
in diameter, surrounded at the base by the densely fulvo-tonentose 
calyx; bracts densely fulvo-tomentose, linear, up to 15 mm long, 
the bracteoles much shorter." 

The type of the species was collected by Llaximo Ramos ajid Gre- 
gorio E. Edaflo [ Herb, Philip. Bur, Sci, k$Shp ] on forested slopes 
at an altitude of about 1600 meters on Mount Alzapan, in Nueva 
Vizcaya Province, Luzon, Philippine Islands, on May 2k, 1925, and 
was deposited in the herbarium of the Philippine Bureau of Sci- 
ence but is now destroyed. 

Quisumbing & Merrill comment that this is "A species most 
closely allied to Callicarpa magnifolia Merrill, but with broadly 
oblong-elliptic, somewjiat larger leaves, the margins undulate- 
dentate and the base acute," 

Recent collectors describe the plant as 3 m. tall, the stems 
10 cm, in diameter, the (immature) fruit green, flowering and 
fruiting in May, growing in mossy forests at an altitude of 1600 
meters. The corollas on the type collection are described as 
"violet", but those on Kjellberg 1763 are said to have been
