    Peter 10271! (E. Usambaras, Sigi valley, near Amani, 18 May 1915, 500 m.), a sterile specimen, is very similar to S. leprosula, but is undoubtedly not that species but the closely related S. platycarpa Heim, which has the leaves sparsely scabrid stellate-pubescent beneath rather than closely paletomentellous (or if only with scattered hairs then much smaller with rays reduced); the leaves are up to 17 × 8 cm., very slightly cordate at the base with midrib quite densely pubescent above. It is a native of the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra, Borneo, etc. The Peter specimen is exactly the same as Dupont 17 collected in the Seychelles and said to come from Java (where apparently S. platycarpa is not native but may probably be cultivated).
