Diospyros gaultheriifolia Mart. ex Miq.

December 18, 2009

This species has been collected three time only (according to the info available online; see specifically http://splink.cria.org.br/index?&setlang=en, a database of Brazilian herbaria + Brazilian material in two US herbaria).  The isotype at NY collected by Blanchet is in fact a sterile specimen. One Brazilian collection is in fruit, while the third from Una, in southern Bahia, has no notes. My collection (Popovkin 640 [HUEFS]) may be one of the few with female flowers.

Pistillate flower.
