Taxon Profile     (Last Modified On 1/5/2021)
Description: Dioecious, unarmed, glabrous, terrestrial, evergreen shrubs and trees. Stems branched, pachycaulous. Leaves alternate, petiolate, the bases clasping, stipules present to reduced or absent; blades simple or palmately compound (with petiolulate to sessile leaflets), coriaceous, the margins toothed (or rarely entire). Inflorescences terminal and axillary, erect or pendant, thrice compound umbellulate (sometimes irregularly so), the ultimate units umbellules (or sometimes racemules of staminate flowers); bracts reduced or absent; pedicels slender to stout, articulated. Calyx a truncate rim or minutely 5-toothed; petals 5, valvate, free; stamens 5; carpels 2–5, ovaries inferior, styles basally or entirely connate; the disc hemispherical. Fruits drupes, glabrous, obloid to globose, terete or compressed laterally; endocarp crustaceous or hardened, the lateral faces with deep hollows and grooves along the dorsal margin. Endosperm uniform. 2n = 48.
Distribution: New Zealand and temperate South America (Chile and Argentina). Species having 2 carpels and leaflets with distinct petiolules are often treated in the segregate genus Neopanax, and in some treatments, the Tasmanian and two Patagonian species of Pseudopanax have been transferred to Raukaua (see Frodin and Govaerts, 2003).
Notes: Pseudopanax is a genus of 7 species.
