Two New Species of Beilschmiedia (Lauraceae) from Borneo
Two new species of Beilschmiedia Nees (Lauraceae) from Borneo, B. crassa and B. microcarpa, are described and illustrated. Beilschmiedia crassa is distinguished from the other Bornean Beilschmiedia species by its thick and strongly coriaceous, narrowly ovate leaves and flowers with a thick receptacle. Beilschmiedia microcarpa is distinct in the combination of the following characters: its glabrous narrow buds, opposite, elliptic, chartaceous leaves with raised veins on the upper surface, flowers with short filaments, and relatively small fruits.
