Derrick Posted September 29, 2014 Report Share Posted September 29, 2014 Correct name Dischidia pectenoides H. Pearson published in the Journal of the Linnean Society, Botany, vol.35, p377, (1902). With a Type Description in Latin as was then required. http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/page/335444#page/392/mode/1up Synonym, Dischidia vidalii Becc. (Odoardo Beccari) a name used in Malesia Raccolta 2, pp272/3, (1886) with no type description, thus it is nom nud (a naked name.) http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/item/151443#page/408/mode/1up See bottom of p272. More background, An enumeration of Philippine flowering plants, vol.3, p343, (1923.) (Enum. Philipp. Fl.) or sometimes (EPFP.) http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/page/33502741#page/355/mode/1up Journal of Botany British and Foreign, vol.40, p270, (1902). http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/page/35243293#page/343/mode/1up Journal Linnean Soc. Vol 35, p376, (1901/1904) http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/page/335444#page/391/mode/1up. With hints of possibly more saccate species. Description. Domatia leaves are particularly inflated and again of the double cavity form seen in D. complex and it has attractive red flowers, probably a rarity in this little known genus where most flowers appear to be white. Habitat/Range. The Zambales Range and Bataan, Rizal, and Laguna Provinces on Luzon Island, Northern Philippines, where it frequently grows on the dead stems of climbing bamboo. Also frequently spelt pectinoides which is WRONG. Edit. Furthermore, I can find no illustration in Malesia 2 that could be accepted as a leptotype.
