Daphnogene ungeriDaphnogene ungeri Heer
Laurel family

De Saporta counted all species with three main veins, which were not clearly Cinnamomum, among the genus Daphnogene.
The leaf of D. ungeri is entirely bordered and elongated to lanceolate. Easy characteristic is the fact that there are little knobs or warts at the point where the side vein is leaving the main vein. Often the three nerves meet in the same point (not in this case). They continu till about half of the length of the leaf.
The leaf is somewhat rounded at the base and often a bit asymmetrical. The widest point of the leaf blade is situated below the middle of the leaf and the leaf tip is typically extremely long drawn out.
Rather common.
