Scientific Name:Dicymbe froesii Ducke

The unijugate leaves with larger leaflets, the villose filaments and petals, and the shape of the one complete petal separate this species readily from its only near relative, D, yutajensis. The geographic disjunction between the two species is rather wide; the latter is from a sandstone mountain and it is likely that D. froesii is either to be found on sandstone or on sands derived from such sandstone mountains. Ducke related D. froesii to D. corymbosa but there is little more than a superficial resemblance between the leaves of the two species. Only an isotype has been seen.
