(Vol. 01, 1998-05) Ocotea Heribertoi (Lauraceae), a New Species of Rain Forest Canopy Tree from the Isthmus Of Tehuantepec, Mexico
MetadataShow full item record
Ocotea heribertoi is a remarkable new species from very high precipitation rain forests of the Chimalapa-Uxpanapa region of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Oaxaca and Veracruz, Mexico. It sports the largest known globose fruit within this large genus, borne in an unusual cupule, while the combination of vegetative and floral features indicate that it is apparently not closely related to any described species.
