Fruit and seed discoveries in Stichoneuron membranaceum Hook. f. (Stemonaceae): an endemic to Indo-Myanmar


K. Majumdar, B. K. Datta

Stichoneuron membranaceum Hook. f. is an endemic species of Indo-Myanmar hotspot whose fruit and seed remained unknown to science since 1850, until they were collected from Tripura, Northeast India. Based on these gatherings, this study is the first report about the development and morphological features of fruit and seed. Earlier historical collections of this species were discussed. Its preferred habitat, possible pollinating agents and seed dispersal mechanism were also investigated.
