DISTRIBUTION AND ECOLOGY

Calantica cerasifolia   is widely distributed in humid forests of eastern Madagascar and in littoral forest; it occurs at a wide range of altitudes (from sea level to over 2100 m), on laterite, rocky or siliceous soil, or sandstone, often on streambanks or in streambeds, or on dry hills.

REMARKS

Calantica cerasifolia   is a tree to 25 m and 100 cm dbh with pale bark, described on only one specimen label (probably in error) as lianoid. It is notable for its large inflorescences of numerous small flowers (usually 5-7.5 mm in diameter, rarely to 10 mm). The perianth is pale or yellowish green to whitish (rarely described as yellow-orange), the glands yellow to orange, the disk pale green or yellow becoming reddish, the filaments white, and the anthers red to brown, yellow, or black. Flowers are often reported to be scented.

As herein circumscribed, Calantica cerasifolia   is widespread in humid forests and encompasses exceptional morphological variability. The leaves are quite variable in shape and size; in general, they are broadest at or above the middle, frequently with cuspidate apices, convex bases, and crenate to subentire margins. Three regional variants are particularly worth noting. Several specimens from very high altitudes in Antsiranana (1827-2137 m) have thickened, often suborbicular, strongly crenate leaves, and a larger group of specimens from moderate-elevation forests (950-1100 m) in Toamasina have small obovate leaves, with apices relatively often rounded to retuse and bases relatively often cuneate. Low-elevation collections from the northeastern Masoala region have unusually large leaves, which tend to be oblong and to have rounded to rounded-truncate rather than convex bases. However, a wide range of variation in leaf morphology is seen within other species in association with altitudinal variation (van Steenis 1957) and the floral morphology is not significantly different in any of these populations.

Calantica cerasifolia   is likely to be closely related to C. grandiflora   , which has pilose inflorescences, only sparsely or partly pubescent ovaries, and usually much larger flowers with larger sepal glands that have a less corrugated surface. Three specimens, cited above as possible hybrids, have been identified that have intermediate characteristics, combining pilose pedicels and sepals with more or less densely pubescent ovaries. The flowers of these specimens are 8-10.5mm in diameter (unusually large for C. cerasifolia   , unusually small for C. grandiflora   ); the sepal glands are over 1 mm long, which is very rare in C. cerasifolia   , but sometimes have a densely corrugated surface typical of that species. Leaf morphology in these specimens is variable, as it is in C. cerasifolia   . Two of these specimens were collected in areas where both species are known; one (Schatz et al. 1948) was collected simultaneously with typical C. grandiflora (Schatz et al. 1947)   . The third (Rakotomalaza et al. 2080) is problematic because it was collected at 1200 m, while C. grandiflora   occurs only at low altitudes near the coasts. As C. cerasifolia   occurs at a complete range of altitudes, we tentatively hypothesize that this specimen results from gene flow following introgression of C. cerasifolia   genes at a lower altitude. Further investigation of this population would be desirable.

The original material of Blackwellia cerasifolia   was described by Ventenat (1808: 56) as “originaire de Madagascar; cultivé dans le Jardin Botanique de l’Isle de France, où le Célèbre Naturaliste Riche avoit cueilli l’exemplaire que je fais figurer.” No specimen attributed to Riche exists. A collection by Commerson, of which material at G was designated as “type” by Sleumer (1973), has been generally considered to represent original material ( Perrier 1946; Sleumer 1973). There are two sheets at G, one of which is barcoded ( G00364811) and the other possibly intended to share the same number (its image was sent as G00364811 _a). The barcoded sheet, which holds a smaller specimen with more surviving flowers, has a handwritten label reading “inconnues de Madagascar, Homalium, Commerson   ”, with a later annotation of “Blackwell. Cerasifolia Vent   ”. The second sheet has a printed “Herbier de Ventenat” label with the handwritten notation of “Commerson”. It is reasonable to assume that Commerson’s collection was original material used by Ventenat ( Commerson died in 1773, so his collection would have been available long before Ventenat’s 1808 publication). However , the material provided by Riche for illustration might have been an unrelated original element. Sleumer equated the two by labeling the barcoded sheet at G as “cultivé dans le Jardin Botanique de l’Ile de France, originaire de Madagascar, Commerson legit” and describing it similarly in print ( Sleumer 1973), but none of the duplicates at G or P mention the Jardin Botanique nor correspond to Ventenat’s plate (1808: tab. 56). Commerson’s specimen at G is therefore a lectotype   , not a holotype. Since only one of the two sheets at G should properly have been designated as lectotype   , we herein perform a second-step lectotypification, as permitted by Art. 9.17 of the ICN ( McNeill et al. 2012), to specify that the barcoded sheet is the lectotype   .
