Arthrophyllum engganoense


Tree to 21 m high, becoming glabrous. Petals 5, c. 2 mm long in bud. Stamens 5, anthers curved. Ovary turbinate, obscurely ribbed, c. 2½ mm long at anthesis. Fruit ellipsoid, c. 10 by 7 mm, with a rather small persistent calyx and stylopodium.


Asia-Tropical, Enggano I present, S. Sumatra present
Malesia: S. Sumatra (Enggano I.), two collections.


The two known collections of this species are very similar and contrast with the widespread 9. A. diversifolium because of the few-flowered umbellules with long, spreading pedicels.
