Oh! That’s great !!!
Congratulations … Discovering a new species is a great joy for a classical taxonomist.
Heartiest Congratulations Santhosh Ji and all co-authors.
Since you have been studying Cinnamomum species I wonder if you can tell me if Bay Leaf (Tejpatta in Hindi) is the same as Cinnamomum tamala (called Vazhana in Kerala). I would also like to know if the leaf of the Cinnamon tree can be dried and used in place of Tejpatta.

Abstract– Cinnamomum mathewianum Remya, E.S.S. Kumar, Radhamany, Valsala et Jagadeesan, a new species in Lauraceae from the Agasthyamala Biosphere Reserve is described and illustrated. The new species resembles Cinnamomum cuspidatum Miq. in many respects, but clearly different by the short trunk; betel scented coriaceous leaves with gradually acuminate apex, perulate terminal buds, longer inflorescence with dark maroon flowers, usual 2-celled anthers in all three whorls and the ellipsoid ovary with peltate stigma. It is named after Prof. P.M. Mathew for his valuable contribution to the field of Biosystematics.
