Hanceola mairei (Levl.) Sun


Description from Flora of China

Hancea mairei H. Léveillé, Repert. Spec. Nov. Regni Veg. 11: 297. 1912.

Stems striate, glabrous. Leaves long petiolate, lanceolate, adaxially dark green, glabrous, abaxially gray, sparsely villous, margin entire except crenate apically. Flowers bluish, in terminal spicate racemes. Calyx glabrescent, veined. Corolla very short, finely pilose, tube much exserted. Style very elongated (specimens not seen).

"The specimen is insufficient for definite identification but it bears a close resemblance to Plectranthus macranthus J. D. Hooker (= Siphocranion macranthum (J. D. Hooker) C. Y. Wu) and may belong to that species." (D. R. McKean, Notes Roy. Bot. Gard. Edinburgh 40: 166. 1982).
