angustisecta Engler, 1921
This member of the
Passifloraceae family was described by Hermann August
Theodor Harms in 1923. It is
found in Mozambique, Tanzania and Zambia, growing in a well drained soil with some
water and some to lots of sun. I think the caudex can grow up to 30
centimetres in diameter, and the vines up to 2,5 meters in length.
The leaves have a vide variety
of appearances, even on the same plant.
The name Adenia
is derived from aden, meaning gland, and pertains to the glands
found on leaves of most of the species.
The species name from the Greek
words stenos meaning 'narrow' and dactylos meaning
'digit': 'Narrow fingers' for the leaves.
