Mongu0Zambia B0

fl. & fr. ; FHO, holotype
Apparently smaller than any other known species of Deinhollia and differing from the other species in our area by the glabrous ovary, fruit and pedicel. The glabrous pedicel is articulated to a tomentose branch of the rhachis and the fruit later breaks off at this point with the pedicel attached to it as a short stipe. Very few mature flowers were available for examination: one of these seemed to have a well-developed ovule in one of the ovary-lobes although the stamens were also well developed. (JSTOR)
