Description

Dasymaschalon ellipticum is a treelet or small tree that can grow up to 5 m tall. A Latin term ellipticus which means elliptic was used to describe the shape of the stigma of this species.  The glabrous dried twigs range in colour from brown to black.  The shapes of leaves are oblong-oblanceolate with blade size ranging from 17–34 cm long and 4–10 cm wide. The leaves have subcoriaceous and glabrous texture with glaucous underneath. The dried leaves become brown or grey-brown on top surface, meanwhile typically paler grey-brown with brown main veins at the bottom. Although this species usually produces a single flower, the raceme may contain between 3–5-flowers. The flower petals are about 3–7 cm long, have coriaceous texture and linear-lanceolate shape. This species produces between 20–30 monocarps of subglobose to ellipsoidal shape with size between 7–10 mm long and 6–8 mm wide and turn brown when dried. Each monocarp contains one seed, but sometimes two seeds. This species is endemic in Borneo, specifically in Sabah, Sarawak and Brunei at lowland forests including swamp forests (Turner et al., 2014).
