Macropanax dispermus (Blume) Kuntze or Macropanax undulatus (Wall. ex G.Don) Seem. ??


I think more closer to Macropanax undulatus (Wallich ex G. Don) Seemann as leaves are entire as per Flora of China and keys herein as per

Leaves are serrulate in Macropanax dispermus as per Flora of China. and looks different as per Plant illustrations  GBIF  Specimen 1  FOC illustration   POWO

I think it is more closer to Brassaiopsis glomerulata as per POWO specimens- onetwo and GBIF specimens and description in Flora of China and FoC illustration
