Description

HABIT. Small tree or shrub, to 2–3(–8) m tall, DBH to 2–10 cm, branches and twigs densely red-brown pubescent to glabrous.

LEAVES. With 3–5-fid stipules, finely divided into linear to filiform lobes, 4–9 mm long, hirsute; petiole distinctly inflated in the upper part, reddish-brown tomentose, 0.5–1.8 cm long; leaf blades usually drying green, oblong-oblanceolate to oblong-elliptic, papery, 13.5–25(–34) cm long and 4.5–9.5(–11) cm wide, glabrous apart from sparsely pubescent veins above, puberulous to pubescent with scattered stellate hairs below, secondary veins often looping, apex distinctly acuminate, base cordate to subcordate and sometimes asymmetric, margin obscurely toothed or with very few, small, acute, forward-pointing teeth; sometimes domatia formed of long hairs in the axils of the lateral veins.

INFLORESCENCE. An axillary or terminal cyme of 3–7 flowers; loose and slender; peduncle 0.5–4.5 cm long, pubescent; involucral bracts, either 3–4-fid, 4–6 mm long, lobes linear to filiform, hirsute, usually persistent, or lanceolate, 4–5 mm long, brownish-tomentose, falling off early, none enveloping the flower buds.

FLOWERS. pedicellate; pedicel 4–10 mm long, pinkish-tomentose; buds ovoid, pinkish-velvety; sepals oblong to oblanceolate, 8–10 mm long and 2–3 mm wide, borders fringed at the apex, tomentose; petals oblong, rounded at the apex, 2–3 mm long, 1–1.5 mm wide; ovary 5–7-locular.

FRUITS. Oblong-elliptic, flattened at base and apex, 6.5–8 cm long and 5–6 cm wide, grooved, glabrous.

SEEDS. Obovoid, 1.8 cm long, 8 mm wide.

Distribution (see Fig. 9 View Fig )

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

Habitat

Terra firma forest, understory, fruiting and flowering in full shade. At altitudes of 250–1025 m a.s.l.

Phenology

Flower: March, August, October, fruit: January, Juny–August.

Proposed IUCN status

Least Concern (LC). Desplatsia subericarpa has an EOO of 4 062 478 km 2 and an AOO of 580 km 2, with a wide distribution across the forests of West and Central Africa. There are no major threats. Several collections are from protected areas which give this species some level of protection. Our assessment as LC is in agreement with the IUCN Red List assessments of threatened species (BGCI and IUCN SSC Global Tree Specialist Group 2019b).

Notes

A specimen of Mann 1695 at K was chosen by us from all the sheets of this number at K and P as the lectotype, because it also includes fruits.

The specimens Zenker 918 (BM, E, HBG, K, P) were annotated by Pellegrin (1924) as Grewia oligantha K.Schum. , later corrected by himself to D. subericarpa . Grewia oligantha K.Schum. has, to the best of our knowledge, never been effectively published.

Five specimens do not entirely conform to the species description, but are tentatively placed under this species: Donis 1528 (BR, P), Manning 2110 (K, WAG), Masens 161 (BR, WAG) Maudoux 170 (BR, K), and Toussaint 12 (BR, K). Some are unusually hairy and some dry brown, characters usually associated with D. chrysochlamys , which is why we first thought of some as D. chrysochlamys . However, the leaf tip is distinctly acuminate and the leaf margin only shows very few, small, sharp teeth, characters indicating that the specimens are D. subericarpa .
