Description

HABIT. Tree, to 4–8(–12) m tall, DBH to (6–) 10–25 cm; branches and twigs with dense, long, coarse, orange hairs.

LEAVES. With (2–)3–4(–5)-fid stipules, almost divided to base into linear to lanceolate lobes with acute apex, (3–) 6–15 mm long, 1–5 mm wide at base, rusty-tomentose; petioles rusty-velvety, 1–3.2(–4.5) cm long; leaf blades usually drying brown, oblong-oblanceolate to oblong-elliptic, sub-leathery, often bullate, 9–40 cm long, 3.5–19 cm wide, orange-pubescent above and below, below more so with evenly but not densely spaced stellate hairs easily visible using a 10× lens, feeling soft when touched; midrib prominent and densely orange-pubescent below, secondary veins rarely looping, apex acute or only slightly acuminate, base cordate or subcordate and sometimes slightly asymmetrical, margins coarsely and irregularly toothed, particularly in upper part of the leaf; domatia absent.

INFLORESCENCE. An axillary or terminal cyme of 3–6 flowers, usually condensed; peduncle up to 1.5 cm long, pubescent; involucral bracts 6–8, 3 inner roundish, about up to 8 mm in diameter, silky tomentose, enveloping the buds, occasionally falling off early during anthesis; 3–5 outer oblong-lanceolate, orange tomentose, not enveloping the buds, falling off early during anthesis.

FLOWERS. Subsessile or shortly pedicellate, occasionally pedicels up to 1 cm long, orange-silky tomentose; buds roundish, silky-orange tomentose; sepals greenish-white or pinkish, oblong, 0.8–1.7 cm long, 3–4 mm wide, fringed at the tip, tomentose; petals ovate-oblong, 4 mm long, 1.5 mm – 2.4 mm wide, curled back at top; ovary 5–7-locular.

FRUITS. Subglobose to globose, (5–) 8–12 cm long, (4–) 8–9 cm wide, smooth to obscurely grooved, when young with orange hairs, soon almost glabrous, with visible remnants of hairs.

SEEDS. Obovoid, 1 cm long, 5 mm wide.

Distribution (see Fig. 5 View Fig )

Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Ghana, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Uganda.

Habitat

Terra firma   and seasonally flooded forest, often in light gaps and open places. At altitudes of 100– 1250 m a.s.l. In Ghana D. chrysochlamys   is reported (W. Hawthorne pers. comm.) to be commoner in the higher rainfall evergreen forest than in the lower rainfall semi-evergreen and semi-deciduous forests.

Phenology

Flower: February–May, September, December; fruit: July, September, December.

Proposed IUCN status

Least Concern (LC). Desplatsia chrysochlamys   has an EOO of 3 916 983 km 2 and an AOO of 504 km 2, with a wide distribution across the forests of West and Central Africa. There are no major threats. Several collections are recorded from protected areas which give this species some level of protection.

Notes

Harris (2002) observed that some specimens identified as D. chrysochlamys   from the Dzanga-Sangha area in the south west of the Central African (e.g., Wraber 49481 (K)) have expanded inflorescences and flowers with obvious pedicels and no involucral bracts, which makes the specimen very similar to Mildbraed 8831 (K) from Deng Deng ( Cameroon), which is one of the two syntypes mentioned in the protologue of D. floribunda   syn. nov. ( Burret 1926). Since the vegetative characters fit those of D. chrysochlamys   and there is some variation in the degree of inflorescence expansion, we have treated D. floribunda   syn. nov. as a synonym of D. chrysochlamys   . This view is further supported by the here newly defined key characters for D. chrysochlamys   , of the leaves drying brown and the lower side of the leaves feeling soft when touched, both characters which are already mentioned in the protologue of D. floribunda   syn. nov. ( Burret 1926).
