Leuconotis bullata


Branchlets densely brown pubescent. Leaves: Inflorescence 3.2-4.6 cm long; Sepals 3.2-4 by 1-1.3 mm, 2.5-4 times as long as wide, densely pubescent. Stamens inserted c. 6.7 mm from corolla base which is 0.6 of tube length; Ovary c. 2.2. mm high, pubescent; Fruit pear-shaped, to 4.5 by 2.9 cm (but probably not completely mature), densely brown pubescent.


Asia-Tropical: Borneo present (Sabah present)
Malesia: Borneo (Sabah).


1 Leeuwenberg described L. bullata on the basis of it having bullate leaves, more densely hairy leaves beneath and sepals only up to twice as long as wide. It is extremely close to L. eugeniifolia and the characters of the bullate leaves and sepals do not serve to distinguish it. I have seen no sepals less than twice as long as wide as suggested by Leeuwenberg. However, the very dense dark coloured indumentum contrasts to the much paler indumentum in L. eugeniifolia and the ovary is pubescent as opposed to the glabrous ovary of L. eugeniifolia. 2 No open flowers have been seen of this species, the approximate corolla dimensions given above were based on what I take to be mature buds.
