"Plate 78, Figures 6, 7a"

"Leaves petiolate, ovate-lanceolate, 3 to 3.5 centimeters in length by 2 to 2.5 centimeters in maximum width, tapering above to the apex and below to the rounded, cuneate base; margin crenate-dentate from below the middle upward, entire below; nervation acrodrome from the base, consisting of a midrib and a pair of simple, curved inner primaries with secondary branches that connect with and merge into an obscure, irregular outer pair, the latter with fine nervilles extending to and terminating in the teeth."



From Hollick (1930) (p. 103)

"It is possible that these leaves may represent only a variety of Zizyphus pseudomeeki, the species last described; but the abrupt point of marginal demarkation between the relatively long upper, dentate part and the brief lower, entire part appears to be a sufficiently differentiating character."
