Citrus reticulata Blanco
    Fl. Filip. 610: (1837).

  • Citrus depressa Hayata

    Distribution: Naturalized in Madagascar

    Bioclimate: Humid, Subhumid, Dry

    Vegetation Formation: Forest

    Elevation (m): 0-499, 500-999

    Province: Antsiranana

    Protected Areas : Ankarana, Lokobe, Montagne d’Ambre, Tsaratanana

    Note: Apparently naturalized far from habitation in forested habitats, it is a wild form of the cultivated Mandarin or Tangerine which is widely grown for its edible fruit. The Malagasy plant was originally referred to a separate endemic species (C. voangasay), but this was later reduced to a mere variety, but taxonomic recognition hardly seems justified.
