Abstract

Aglaia pannelliana is described from limestone habitats in Papua New Guinea's Southern Fold Mts. The extraordinary novelty is easily distinguished by its exceptionally large fruits (to 14.0 × 8.5 cm, dimensions exceeded only by the capsules of A. mackiana), by flowers that are probably the largest in the genus, and by the unique presence of simple hairs on vegetative parts. Distributional notes are also provided for the rarely collected A. puberulanthera, newly documented for the Trans-Fly region.
