Unfortunately, this trait has been overlooked in the remaining species, likely due to the small size and the deciduous stipules.
Habit Shrubs to 5 m tall (exceptionally to 10 + trees to 40 m tall m tall) Stipule margin laciniate entire Leaf blade membranaceous, margin chartaceous, plane margin revolute Number of lateral 8 to 11 4 to 8 veins on each side Branching, 2-forked, axillary to the 4 to 6-forked, mostly on position and size distalmost leaves, to 1 defoliate branches, to 3.
Stipules persistent, subreniform, apex acuminate-caudate, base amplexicaul, subcordate-subauriculate, tomentulose, margin glabrous, 6-12 x 3-5 mm.
Stipules deciduous, linear-lanceolate, apex attenuated, base truncate, pilosulose, margin glabrous, 1.
Stipules persistent, linear-lanceolate, apex attenuated, base truncate, pilosulose, margin glabrous, 0.
3 cm long, 10-16 cm wide, broadly elliptical or obovate, cuneate or rounded at base, flat or slightly revolute at margin, broadly obtuse or rounded and usually abruptly short-acuminate or apiculate at apex, adaxially glabrate at maturity except often appressed-tomentose on midrib and lateral veins near base, abaxially densely and persistently tomentose with the hairs T-shaped with the long crosspiece straight or sinuous, apparently eglandular, the principal lateral veins 10-13 on each side of midrib, very prominent abaxially and sunken adaxially in dried leaves; petiole 9-14 mm long, densely and persistently appressed-tomentose or sericeous, eglandular; stipules 1.
5 cm wide; its principal lateral veins are only 7-9(11) on each side of the midrib, moderately raised below and flat or raised (not sunken) above in dried leaves; it has several obvious, well-defined abaxial glands at the base and many others scattered throughout the length of the lamina; the petiole often bears a small bulbous gland beside one or both stipules and a pair of impressed glands between middle and apex; and the inflorescences are mostly borne in the axils of current leaves.
Its laminas are usually larger [(6)9-17 cm long, (4)5-9 cm wide)], its petioles and stipules are usually longer, its inflorescences are often longer and contain more flowers, and the fruits are often larger.
Legumes 25-35 mm long, slightly falcate, dehiscent; seeds 3-10 or more; stipules 1-2 mm long;____corolla 5-6 mm long 4.
Leaves odd pinnate, petioles 3-8 cm long; leaflets 5-9 paired, elliptic to obovate, 2-4 cm long, pubescent both surfaces with subappressed hairs; stipules setaceous, to 1 cm long, persistent.
5 cm long; stipules subulate, 2-6 mm long, semipersistent.
The beginning of colleter differentiation can be seen in the younger stipules, that is, those closer to the apical meristem (Fig.
stigonocarpa, stipules encase the innermost stipule and the young leaf in a repetitive pattern, thus protecting successive leaf primordia and the shoot apex, in a rare arrangement (Lee and Langenheim 1975); this indicates the protective role of these structures as suggested by Lubbock (1890).
Species of Didymaea are characterized by their procumbent or climbing stems, opposite leaves with ovate, oblong-ovate, lanceolate, elliptic, or rarely linear blades, small, shallowly to deeply bilobed or geminate interpetiolar stipules, axillary inflorescences with small, bisexual homostylous flowers with calyces reduced or absent, small, white to purple corollas with short tubes and 4-valvate lobes, 4 stamens with dorsifixed anthers, 2-locular ovaries with one axillary ovule per locule, and black, drupaceous fruits that are dimidiate and deeply bisulcate or sometimes subglobose.
1 Stipules entire to shortly bifid (divided less than half way); fruits globose (nondimidiate) .
