Vasilis Teodoridis:
Lauraceae | Litsea

73. Litsea elongata (Nees) J. D. Hooker; Fl. Brit. India. 5: 165. 1886.

????? huang dan mu jiang zi

Evergreen small or medium-sized trees; up to 12 m tall; ca. 40 cm d.b.h. Branchlets densely brown tomentose. Leaves alternate or subverticillate; petiole 2-25 mm; densely brown tomentose; leaf blade oblong; oblong-lanceolate; narrowly lanceolate; or oblanceolate; 5-22 x 1.2-6 cm; pubescent abaxially and villous along midrib and lateral veins; glabrous adaxially; lateral veins 10-20 pairs; transverse veinlets conspicously prominent abaxially; base cuneate or rounded; apex obtuse; shortly acuminate; caudate-acute; or long caudate-acute. Umbels solitary; rarely clustered; 4- or 5-flowered per umbel; peduncle absent or to 10 mm. Male flowers: pedicel sericeous-villous; perianth segments 6; ovate; fertile stamens 9-12; filaments villous; of 3rd or 4th whorls each with 2 sessile rounded glands at base; rudimentary pistil glabrous. Fruit oblong; 11-13 x 7-8 mm; seated on cup-shaped perianth tube; black-purple at maturity; fruiting pedicel 2-3 mm. Fl. May-Nov; fr. Feb-Jun.

Roadsides; streamsides; weed-tree forests on mountain slopes; shady moist places; sparse forests; thickets; 500-2300 m. Anhui; Fujian; Guangdong; Guangxi; Guizhou; Hainan; Hubei; Hunan; Jiangsu; Jiangxi; Sichuan; Xizang; Yunnan; Zhejiang [India; Nepal].

This species is variable in the size and shape of its leaves; especially in repeatedly disturbed secondary forests or dense thickets.
