"Plate 40, Figure 3"

"Leaf cordate (?), 9 centimeters in length from the base of the midrib to the apex by 8.9 centimeters in width across the base of the leaf; margin entire; nervation tripalmate from the base, camptodrome throughout; lateral primaries ascending at acute angles of divergence from the midrib, with branches on the outer sides that are connected by the tertiary nerves, forming a series of loops inclosing polygonal areas that diminish in size upward, with similar smaller areas or areolae extending outward to the margin; secondary nerves fine, leaving the midrib at obtuse angles of divergence, curving upward, connecting below with the extremities of the lateral primaries and above with each other, by irregular tertiary cross nervation."



From Hollick (1930) (p. 74)

"Although the base of this leaf is missing the indications are that it was cordate, and that the foliar outline was as characteristic of Aristolochia as the nervation. The specific name is given in honor of Mr. Sidney Paige, with whose assistance the collection was made."
