Selliguea gracilipes


Asia-Tropical:, New Guinea present
Malesia: New Guinea.


1 Distinct from most small species of Selliguea in the very thick texture, the thick cartilaginous margin, the regular presence of distinct notches, the absence of hydathodes, the rounded, not acute apex of the lamina, in which the costa ends well below the apex. Selliguea gracilipes is almost indistinguishable from S. neglecta (Sumatra, Java). 2. The stipes may be very long and slender or short and hardly distinct.
