Notes

Said to be intermediate between A. montanum and A. alternifolium, distinct from the latter by the purple fruit, degree of branching of the inflorescence, and the narrow, thin-coriaceous leaflets.
A. montanum and A. alternifolium were already distinguished by Philipson (Fl. Males. I, 9: 55) by weak characters and the addition of a third one, with intermediate leaf characters is therefore hardly welcome; the differentiating characters are also slight. Mr. Lim should have given a clear key for the three species instead of this haphazard description.
Prof. Philipson (in litt.) finds 'A. stonei' represents rather larger than usual specimens of A. alternifolium.
