Discussion:

It is possible that the fruits of Irwin 48584 are not normal; certainly, in their present stage of development they do not conform to those generally found in the species. The flowers appear to belong to the species, however. Egler & Irwin 46557 also is rather doubtfully placed here, the leaves being generally of thinner texture, larger and more obviously reticulate.
