The Genus Melastoma in Borneo including 31 new species. 2016. illus. 184 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.
Melastoma is revised for Borneo: 41 species are recognized, of which 31 are newly described. Hypanthium indumentum types were used to group species, with penicillate emergences, bristles, scales with entire or subentire margin, scales dissected into segments, and scales with denticulate, serrate or ciliolate margins being the main categories. Other useful characters were mainly derived from twig indumentum; leaf shape, venation and indumentum; inflorescence form; flower size; hypanthium shape; development and form of intersepalar emergences; and staminal differentiation. Only Melastoma malabathricum L. occurs outside of Borneo as a regionally widespread species; the other 40 species are Bornean endemics.
