Plate 86, Figure 1

"Leaf oblong-lanceolate, about 8 centimeters in length by 2.5 centimeters in width, entire, abruptly rounded and broadly wedge-shaped at the base; secondary nervation pinnate, alternate, subacrodrome, consisting of three or four nerves on each side of the midrib all starting from below the middle of the leaf, leaving the mddrib at acute angles of divergence, curving upward, becoming attenuated and finally disappearing close to the margin, the upper ones apparently extending to the apex."



From Hollick (1930) (p. 113)

"This leaf is apparently identical generically with other similar but broader leaves from the same locality referred to Cornus forchhammeri Heer. (See p. 112, pl. 30, fig. 3a; pl. 86, fig. 2.) It is, however, conspicuously oblong instead of ovate."
