8a. Combretum griffithii var. griffithii

西南风车子(原变种) xi nan feng che zi (yuan bian zhong)

Combretum dasystachyum Kurz; C. wallichii Candolle var. griffithii (Van Heurck & Müller Argoviensis) M. G. Gangopadhyay & Chakrabarty; C. yuankiangense C. C. Huang & S. C. Huang ex T. Z. Hsu.

Leaf blade glabrous on both surfaces. Fl. Apr-May, fr. Sep-Dec.

Forests, sparse forests, mountain slopes and valleys; (600-)1100-1600 m. S Yunnan [Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam].

Combretum yuankiangense C. C. Huang & S. C. Huang ex T. Z. Hsu (in C. Y. Wu, Fl. Yunnan. 1: 93. 1977), described from S Yunnan (Yuanjiang) appears to be a form of C. griffithii var. griffithii. It has an abaxially sparsely scaly leaf blade (vs. densely so in typical C. griffithii var. griffithii ), obtuse-rounded or retuse at the apex (vs. cuspidate or acuminate), and an ellipsoid fruit, 2-2.6 × 1.2-1.6 cm. The narrowness of the fruit may be a result of its having been immature when collected (cf. comments on C. oliviforme under C. sundaicum above).
