Abrahamia sericea   occurs in eastern humid domain forest, extending from coastal areas to the escarpment (Map 8), where it can reach 800-1200 m elevation. It flowers from September through December, and sets fruit from December until May.

With an EOO of 178,062 km 2, a minimum AOO of 236 km 2, and 64 known localities, with subpopulations in numerous protected areas, A. sericea   is assigned a preliminary conservation status of “Least Concern’’ [LC] using the IUCN Red List Categories and

Criteria ( IUCN, 2012).

122 124 Notes

Additional material examined

Abrahamia sericea   and A. grandidieri   are distinctive within the genus in having very closely spaced, parallel secondary veins, but A. sericea   differs by the presence of indument on its disk and ovary, a character absent in A. grandidieri   but shared with another species, A. thouvenotii   , which, however, has very widely spaced, arcuate secondary veins.
