48b. Wikstroemia trichotoma var. flavianthera S. Y. Liou, Acta Phytotax. Sin. 42: 265. 2004.

黄药白花荛花 huang yao bai hua rao hua

Leaf blade with 6-11 pairs of lateral veins. Inflorescence rachis 0.8-3.5 cm, 8-26-flowered. Calyx tube to 20 mm. Disk scale linear-oblong, apex truncate or slightly emarginate. Ovary ca. 2 mm, glabrous.

● Among shrubs on limestone hills. NC Guangxi (Luocheng).

The protologue of this variety emphasized the presence of yellow anthers but there is rather little information on anther color within the genus, including Wikstroemia trichotoma, and available images of Korean material also show flowers with yellow anthers. However, the apparently much larger calyx and isolated distribution do suggest that this taxon is worth maintaining.
