SK 3875 10 October 2023 – Aralaceae: 13 high res. images.
Location: Shivapuri National Park, Kathmandu, Nepal
Date: 30 September 2023
Altitude:  1746m.
Habitat : Wild
Does this match with Brassaiopsis gracilis Hand.-Mazz. ??
However, it is not recorded in Nepal!

To me appears close to specimens of Brassaiopsis aculeata as at GBIF (one)
