赛金莲木 sai jin lian mu

Basionym: Campylocercum striatum Tieghem, Ann. Sci. Nat., Bot., sér. 8, 16: 304. 1902; Gomphia striata (Tieghem) C. F. Wei; Ouratea striata (Tieghem) Lecomte (1911), not (Tieghem) Urban (1908).

Shrubs 1-3 m tall. Petioles 3-6 mm; leaf blade oblong to lanceolate, 9-18 × 2-4.5 cm, coriaceous to subcoriaceous, base cuneate, margin entire or with small teeth but base entire, apex shortly acuminate or acuminate; midvein prominent on both surfaces; secondary nerves ± straight; submarginal vein ± parallel to leaf margin. Inflorescences terminal or axillary, 2-5 cm. Flowers ± laxly disposed on inflorescence branches; basal portion of pedicel up to 2.5 mm. Sepals oblong, 4-5 × 2-3 mm. Petals oblong-lanceolate, 5-6 mm, base non-auriculate, apex obtuse. Anthers sessile, ca. 4 mm, slightly curved. Ovary deeply lobed; stigma subulate, 3.5-4 mm. Drupelets slightly reniform, ca. 5 × 6 mm. Fl. Apr-Nov, fr. Aug-Dec.

Usually in forests in granitic areas; below 100-700 m. Hainan [Vietnam].

Kanis (Blumea 16: 53-61. 1968) treated Campylocercum striatum (or Ouratea striata) and "O. lobopetala" as synonyms of Campylospermum serratum (as Gomphia serrata). Campylospermum serratum is quite similar to "O. lobopetala," but Campylospermum striatum differs in having the submarginal nerve regularly parallel to the leaf margin, shorter inflorescences, longer basal portion of the pedicel (below the articulation), and oblong-lanceolate petals. Therefore, Campylospermum striatum is treated as a separate species here. As Gomphia Schreber is a synonym of Ouratea Aublet (Bittrich & Amaral, Taxon 43: 89-93. 1994), the new combination proposed above is necessary.
