Passiflora subpeltata Ortega
    Nov. Pl. Descr. Dec. 6: 78 (1798).

Distribution: Naturalized in Madagascar

Bioclimate: Humid

Vegetation Formation: Forest, Anthropic

Elevation (m): 1000-1499

Province: Toamasina

Note: Known from a few cultivated specimens (Antananarivo), and a collection from near Moramanga, it is probably more widely naturalized that records suggest. Much confused in the literature with P. stipularis, and we are not convinced that they are not the same species, in which case the latter name has priority, and the sp is known by this name in the Mascarenes, however we follow current usage in Africa until further work is available.

Type(s) of syns and other voucher(s): ANTILAHIMENA.P 4196 (MO, P, TAN)
