Notes     (Last Modified On 5/6/2009)
general taxon notes:
Gollania cylindricarpa is characterized by the terete leafy stems with erect-spreading leaves that are distinctly decurrent at base, strongly thick-walled leaf cells, and long-cylindrical capsules. It is similar to G. schensiana and G. turgens in having lower leaf margins recurved, but differs by the erect-spreading leaves that are long decurrent at base.
