Conservation
Conservation Status. Data Deficient (DD). Since I have seen no recent collections this species may be to some degree endangered.
Distribution
Philippines.
Morphology General Habit
Trees 18 m high
Morphology Leaves
Leaves with petioles 1 – 1.5 cm long, 1.5 – 2 mm wide, floccose-hairy, most of the indumentum lost before leaf-fall, rounded or flat in apical third above; blades papery to chartaceous, mostly oblong, some elliptic-oblong, a few elliptic, 2.5 – 3.2 × as long as wide, 8 – 10.5 × 2.5 – 4 cm, usually not acuminate, acute to obtuse at apex (60 – 90°), cuneate at base, young leaves densely floccose-hairy, glabrous beneath when mature or with some residual indumentum on midrib, with 9 – 12 pairs of main veins, fine venation network obscure above, midrib prominent beneath, main veins less so and breaking up ¾ – ⅞ inside margin, domatia absent beneath, margins weakly serrate, teeth 1 – 3 mm apart
Morphology Leaves Stipules
Stipules caducous, not seen
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Androecium Stamens
Stamens 26 – 28; filaments 0.2 – 0.5 mm long, not tapering but dorsi-ventrally flattened towards tip; anthers 2 – 2.7 mm long, with outer tooth slightly longer than inner, with a minute beak 0.2 – 0.3 mm long, acute, without setae at tip
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Calyx
Sepals 3 – 4 × 1.2 – 1.8 mm, rather thin, sparsely hairy outside, glabrous inside
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Corolla
Petals narrow-obovate to oblong, generally ± narrowed in lower third, 6 mm long, 2.1 – 2.3 mm wide at widest point of undivided part, divided into 12 – 13 apical divisions 2 – 2.5 mm long unequal in length and grouped into lobes (the degree of lobing very irregular, usually deep), petals glabrous outside except for a few hairs in a ± median band in lower ½ - ⅔ outside, glabrous inside or occasionally a few straight hairs present in middle)
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Gynoecium Ovary
Ovaries 5-locular probably (from one unclear count and from Weibel’s mss description); ovules 4 per loculus; style 2.5 – 3 mm long
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Receptacle
Disk pulviniform, scarcely grooved, 0.5 mm high, velvety
Morphology Reproductive morphology Fruits
Fruit unknown.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences
Racemes among the leaves or behind them but condensed towards twig tips, 3 – 5 cm long, the axis densely ± tomentose, 10 – 16-flowered; bracts early caducous, not seen; pedicels 8 – 11 mm long in flower; buds ovoid, acute at apex
Morphology Twigs
Twigs densely ± tomentose, 1.5 – 2 mm thick towards the tip
Note
Notes. Known from the type only. Elmer compared it to Elaeocarpus cumingii and other species in ‘sect. Elaeocarpus’; however, the ovary has 4 ovules per loculus and probably 5-locular ovaries; besides, the disk is something between pulviniform and an unlobed ring, whereas ‘sect. Elaeocarpus’ has a well-developed disk with fused or free lobes. Elmer’s collection also has leaves with fine even serrations and a base that is decurrent into a short petiole. This combination of characters fits much better with the Ganitrus group. It differs from most members of Ganitrus in having some inflorescences among the leaves, though most were reported by Elmer to be behind them, and in having floccose-hairy young parts, the hairs being crimped and interlocking. Apart from the quality of the indumentum, it is most similar to E. ramiflorus: domatia are missing from E. fulvus, which also has fewer flowers (10 – 16 not 15 – 25) and longer pedicels (8 – 11 mm not 4 – 7 mm), which are hardly striking distinctions.
