Malaya present (World Checklist of Arecaceae)A

Description

  • Differs from the typical form in having broader leaflets, ovoid rather than rounded fruit, and oblong rather than rounded seed. This is a robust mountain rattan, found on G. Padang in Trengganu. There is only one collection and the status of this variety may have to be reviewed if more material becomes available. (J. Dransfield, A Manual of the rattans of the Malay Peninsula. Malayan Forest Recirds 29.. 1979)B
