Vine into tree, the lower stems loose, 2.4 cm. in diameter,

very difficult to count growth rings, but perhaps growing
very slowly and this stem many years old; lower stem free,
the upper branches forming a tangle firmly anchored on

inserted into cracks in the bark and then the pads not
obvious. Voucher for wood specimens at Kw, Lw, MADw,
