2 The pedicels are generally not articulated, although some flowers of SAN 18843 seem to have an articulation, but this may be an artefact caused by drying. 1 Close to H. montana, both having very similar male flowers, but H. amplomontana differs considerably by its stouter twigs, larger leaves, larger male inflorescences, and very much larger fruits with a thick pericarp; in H. montana the fruit is only 2-2.7 cm long, and the perianth is not persistent.
