Elaeagnus tutcheri Dunn


Description from Flora of China

Shrubs, erect. Spines absent; most parts densely scaly. Petiole 6-8 mm; leaf blade suborbicular or ovate, 4-8 × 2-3.5 cm, papery or thinly leathery, often bullate, adaxially glossy, lateral veins 5-7 per side of midrib at 50°-60° to midrib, veins conspicuous above. Flowers in short racemes or few flowered clusters; peduncle 2-3 mm. Pedicel 6-8 mm. Calyx tube campanulate, 7-8 × ca. 3 mm; lobes erect, ovate, shorter than tube. Style glabrous. Drupe cylindric-ovoid, 1-1.2 cm. Fl. Nov-Dec, fr. Mar.

The protologue described the endocarp as "3-keeled" but this must surely be a typographical error for "8-keeled."

● About 500 m. Hong Kong.
