Acer laevigatum var. salweenense (W. W. Smith) J. M. Cowan ex Fang


Description from Flora of China

Acer salweenense W. W. Smith, Notes Roy. Bot. Gard. Edinburgh 13: 151. 1921; A. kiukiangense Hu & W. C. Cheng.

Petiole purple-green, pubescent. Inflorescence, pedicels, and flowers pubescent. Infructescence paniculate. Fruiting peduncles 2.3-2.5 cm. Fruit purplish green; nutlets ca. 8 × 5 mm; wing including nutlet 2.5-2.8 cm × ca. 7 mm.

One of us (de Jong) notes that variation concerns the pubescence, a minor characteristic. In addition, this taxon grows in the same area as the typical variety; thus, there is a small basis for distinction as a variety.

Forests; 1000-1700 m. S Yunnan [N Myanmar].
