Known unknowns (in Africa)

Gerrardina eylesiana

Gerrardina eylesiana

Is there anyone who want to go to Africa and have a close look at these plants? Flacourtiaceae is not only merged with Salicaceae (willows), but have also had many genera splitted off. One of these is genus Gerrardina with two species from south-east Africa. Today it is the sole genus in the newly (2006) described family Gerrardinaceae of still uncertain affinity. Not much is known about these small trees, including many of the morphological features, so here you have the chance to make new and important discoveries!
