Eremolaena rotundifolia   is restricted to littoral forests on sand from Masoala PN to the Ft. Dauphin area ( Fig. 1 View Fig ). It can be distinguished by its small, chartaceous leaves with the venation weakly raised on the lower surface, and its small flowers with the sepals 9-12 mm long. This species had been collected recently at Masoala PN and in the Ft. Dauphin area, but has not been recorded from elsewhere for over 30 years.
