Description

The Dasymaschalon dasymaschalum is a treelet or small tree that can grow up to 5 m tall. The dasymaschalum was created from the Greek terms dasys, which means thick-hairy, and maschale, which refers to the axil or armpit which describe about the hair tufts appears at the leaf axils of this species. The dried twigs are dark brown or blackish with variably tomentose. The shape of the leaves is oblong or oblanceolate with blade size ranging from 9−31 long and 4−10 cm wide, and it have chartaceous to subcoriaceous texture. The underneath leaves may be pale or glaucous and it occasionally hairy. The colour of dried leaves is grey-green or grey-brown with main veins brown below. This species only produces a single flower per inflorescences. The texture of the petals are subcoriaceous to coriaceous and have lanceolate shapes varied from 3.5–7 cm long and 1.5–2.4 cm width. It produces between 7−30 moniliform monocarps of up to 7.5 cm long and approximately 6 mm in diameter, where each monocarp may contain 2−7 seeds. This species can growth in lowland forest including limestone and can be found from Myanmar, Andaman Islands, Thailand, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Java and Sarawak (Turner et al., 2014). The short-petiole leaves with cordate bases and monoiliform monocarps of this species make it easy to differentiate it from the two other species found in Sabah and Sarawak.
