Notes     (Last Modified On 3/11/2009)
general taxon notes:
This species is easy to recognize. Because of its strongly dimorphic leaves, with the costa and margins covered with protruding-papillose cells, it would be difficult to make an error in its identification. Calymperes strictifolium has previously been reported from China as Syrrhopodon tuberculosus Dix. & Thér. and Calymperes tuberculosum (Dix. & Thér.) Broth., both of which are synonyms of C. strictifolium.
