Myristica malaccensis subsp. papillosa

Primary tabs

Myristica malaccensis subsp. papillosa


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


The presence of papillae on the lower leaf surface is an important taxonomic character in Myristica. Specimens of subsp. papillosa are generally stouter than those of subsp. Malaccensis. Possibly the male flowers are identical in both subspecies. To judge the definite status of subspecies papillosa more material (with fruits), is needed.
