SUBTROPICAL HIMALAYA ; from Garwhal to Bhotan, alt. 2-4000 ft., Wallich, &c.
A small tree, branchlets robust, glabrous, petioles and leaves beneath hoary or yellowish white, bark wrinkled pale. Leaves 3-5 in., teeth obtuse, nerves penninervuled, nervules anastomosing ; stipules ovate ; petiole 1/2-1 in., stout. Fl. clusters pisiform ; receptacle hirsute. Achenes elliptic, stipitate, acute at both ends, ventricose.—Dr. King sends as var. tenuis a Sikkim plant with thinner ovate coarsely serrate perfectly glabrous leaves 3-5 in. long ; it is in male fl. only. Clarke gathered the same at 7000 ft. elevation, and refers it to malabarica, but its inflorescence is spicate. It appears to me to be quite a different species. Leaves opposite (and alternate in B. platyphylla).
