Description

Dasymaschalon minutiflorum is a small tree that can grow up to 10 m in height. The Latin words for minutiflorum means small flowered to indicate the flower size, which is just about 3 × 5 mm. The glabrous dried twigs will turn either brown or black colour. The shape of the leaves can be ovate, elliptic or obovate with blade size about 5–18 cm long and 1–6 cm width. The leaves are glabrous, chartaceous to subcoriaceous, and have glaucous at underneath. Meanwhile, the dried leaves turn grey-green or grey-brown with major veins underneath turning brownish. This species only has one flower per inflorescence, where the flower poses coriaceous texture with triangular thick petals of size ranging between 2–2.5 long and 1 cm wide. It produces more than 40 globose to ellipsoidal-shape monocarps, with size measuring about 7–10 mm long and approximately 6 mm in diameter. Each monocarp normally contains 1 seeds, but sometimes 2 seeds, and when dried it become smooth and golden brown colour. This species grows in lowland forests in the Philippines and Borneo including Sabah and Brunei (Turner et al., 2014). Dasymaschalon minutiflorum was identified by Nurmawati as one of several varieties of Dasymaschalon clusiflorum, a variant species found only in the Philippines, with the exception of var. minutiflorum in Borneo. All Nurmawati variations were raised to species rank by Saunders and Wang (2011). Dasymaschalon minutiflorum is distinct from the other variant by having leathery, glabrescent petals, although it is quite closely resembling to other D. clusiflorum material from the Philippines, including the type.
