Aglaia rangkori H. St. John

Aglaia rangkori


Fiji: Rotuma

local name: –


This species was described by Harold St. John, thus has to be taken with caution, it was obviously named after the native Rotuman term for plants of that genus, which is ragkari.

It may indeed by a distinct species, or it may be identical with one of the other three species of the genus known to occur on the island of Rotuma: Aglaia saltatorum A. C. Sm., Aglaia samoensis A. Gray, and Aglaia vitiensis A. C. Sm..
