Notes     (Last Modified On 5/1/2009)
general taxon notes:
Plants of S. hainanensis are very similar in gross appearance to those of the locally common and abundant S. prolifer Schwaegr. var. tosaensis, but differ most obviously in the ciliate leaf base. The leaf base of S. prolifer var. tosaensis usually has entire margins, but may bear occasional teeth or, very rarely, a few cilia. The leaf cells of S. prolifer var. tosaensis, while bulging-pluripapillose, lack the strikingly tall papillae of S. hainanensisSyrrhopodon spiculosus Hook. & Grev., known from a single collection in the area, is similar to S. hainanensis.
