Selliguea albidosquamata


Asia-Tropical: Jawa (Jawa present); Lesser Sunda Is. present; Malaya (Peninsular Malaysia present)
Throughout Malesia, but apparently very local or absent in Peninsular Malaysia, Java and the Lesser Sunda Islands.


In West Malesia (Sumatra, Java, Borneo) the rhizomes are mostly short and thick, set with very long, dark-coloured rhizome scales with a recurved, subular, ciliate acumen. In East Malesia most specimens have thinner, more widely creeping rhizomes with brown, dentate-ciliate scales.
