Boerlagiodendron monticola



The incomplete type specimen, gathered by Schlechter, was destroyed during the war. This species was evidently similar to 38. Osmoxylon micranthum, but the ovary was possibly 10-celled. I have tentatively identified Robbins 1644 as this species: it is close to O. micranthum but its ovary, with 8 cells, is outside the range of variation of that species and the pedicels are longer (in fruit). Its distribution (foothills of Adalbert Range) is not dissimilar to that of Boerlagiodendron monticola (Torricelli Mts).
