Notes     (Last Modified On 3/11/2009)
general taxon notes:


Plants of C. lonchophyllum are very similar to those of C. levyanum var. hainanense, but differ in having smooth laminal cells and longer leaves. It may be necessary to cut sections of the leaves to see if papillae are present or lacking. In much of its wide range C. lonchophyllum is common and abundant, but in China it is rare. This species and C. levyanum are very similar to C. serratum but differ, among other ways, in the much longer cells of their axillary hairs. Specimens of this species have been reported from China under the name C. cristatum Hampe, a synonym of Syrrhopodon loreus (Sande Lac.) Reese, which has not yet been found in China.
