    Tiliaceae, H. Wild. Flora Zambesiaca 2:1. 1963

    Diagnostic
    This species has a rather greyish short pubescence, like that of G. bicolor Juss., but a leaf-shape quite unlike the elliptic-oblong or lanceolate leaves of that species and agreeing instead with G. monticola Sond.
    Leaves
    Its leaves are asymmetrically cordate and oblong-ovate to ovate. The leaf texture is not so thin as in G. bicolor, nor so leathery as in G. monticola.
    Note
    In all respects it seems morphologically to be about half-way between G. monticola and G. bicolor.
