Notes

1The species resembles F. sumatrana, from which it differs in the branched basal lateral veins, the largely reticulate tertiary venation, the often rounded apex of the lamina, and the short ostiolar bracts. 3As essential differentiating characters are lacking, F. episima is included in this species. The material under F. episima differs in the ellipsoid receptacle and the tertiary venation largely parallel to the lateral veins. 4The species is characterized by a widely open ostiole, but the upper bracts are occasionally fully imbricate and the ostiole closed. 2Most collections are entirely glabrous, but some from Borneo are hairy on various parts.
