  • P. malaiana var. barramensis differs from P. mirabilis only in the dissection of the leaf blade; in the former it is irregularly pinnatisect, in the latter entire. In the field, as in the Lambir Hills National Park, populations occur with both entire- and pinnate-leaved individuals. P. malaiana var. barramensis is thus reduced to P. mirabilis which although closely related to P. malaiana var. malaiana I still consider to be distinct in its habit, leaf-costa orientation, rachillae, flowers and fruit.
