Macropsychanthus lauterbachii ssp. parviflorus (Verdc.) Adema

Macropsychanthus lauterbachii ssp. parviflorus

Distribution:

Fiji: Taveuni

local names: –

~~~

This species occurs in New Guinea and other parts of Melanesia, the same applies to the subspecies mentioned here.

This subspecies, however, is recorded, based on a single collection of two fallen flowers only, from the island of Taveuni, Fiji, so may in fact be indigenous to the Fijian Islands as well. [1]
