Note
Notes. The leaves of these recent collections are similar in shape to those of Elaeocarpus ramiflorus from the Philippines but the specimens are placed here on account of the longer style (up to 12 mm), the more numerous leaf nerves (18 – 20 pairs). The slightly smaller fruits (stone c. 10 mm diam.) with 4 loculi match those of E. dolichostylus better than those of E. angustifolius.
