Selliguea dekockii


Asia-Tropical: mainland of New Guinea: present
Malesia: mainland of New Guinea.


Selliguea dekockii is close to S. bellisquamata, and might be regarded as merely a dimorphic variant of the latter, were it not for the constant differences in rhizome structure (the distinct sclerenchyma sheath) and rhizome scales (acute, with a wrinkled apex).
