Knema tridactyla subsp. tridactyla

Asia-Tropical: Borneo present (Sarawak present), W Sabah present

2 The midrib is prominent above, usually covered with characteristic appressed scalelike hairs towards the base. 1 The leaves have conspicuous scattered crateriform hair scars on the upper surface (lens!), similar to those found e.g. in K. oblongata subsp. pedunculata, the latter differing in shape and size of the male flowers. In the indumentum on the lower leaf surface it is somewhat reminiscent of K. scortechinii and K. conferta.
