Notes on the morphology, ecology and distribution of Quisqualis parviflora (Combretaceae).
Boon, R. G.
Quisqualis parviflora Gerrard ex. Sond. is endemic to the KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape provinces, South Africa. The species' distribution has previously been thought to extend to Mpumalanga and the KwaZulu-Natal midlands. Most published distributions include Maputaland in north-eastern KwaZulu-Natal, and it has been suggested that the species may occur in Mozambique. Sterile material of several Combretum Loefl. lianas may be confused with Q. parviflora Although the species may be locally common, it has never been collected in fruit. Published fruit descriptions are based on erroneously identified material.
