Taxon Profile     (Last Modified On 6/26/2012)
Description: Hermaphroditic or possibly andromonoecious (with strong protandry), unarmed, glabrous or pubescent, terrestrial, evergreen shrubs or small to medium-sized trees. Stems well branched, sometimes divaricating, leptocaulous. Leaves alternate, petiolate, bases scarcely clasping, stipules reduced or absent; juvenile leaves palmately compound (leaflets sessile), mature leaves usually unifoliolate by reduction, membranaceous or coriaceous, the margins toothed (or entire). Inflorescence terminal and axillary, erect, twice to thrice compound umbellate; bracts reduced or lacking; pedicels slender to stout, articulated. Calyx minutely 5-toothed; petals 5, valvate, free; stamens 5; carpels 2–4, ovaries inferior, styles free or basally connate, the disc hemispheric. Fruits drupes, glabrous, obloid to globose, terete or compressed laterally; endocarp crustaceous or hardened, the lateral face flat. Endosperm uniform. 2n = 24.
Distribution: New Zealand, low- to high-elevation forests and forest margins, and lowland scrubs. Frodin and Govaerts (2003) also include the Tasmanian and two Patagonian species of Pseudopanax in this genus.
