TitleThe systematic position of the East Malesian genus Hollrungia K. Sch. within the Passifloracae
JournalMededelingen van het Botanisch Museum en Herbarium van de Rijksuniversiteit te Utrecht
AbstractIn 1888 K. Schumann described a new, monotypic genus of the Passifloraceae from Papua, Hollrungia aurantioides K. Sch. (Bot. Jahrb. 9: 212). Its generic distinction was largely ascribed to the peculiar sessile, cap-shaped, undivided stigma (“tellerformige Narbe”) and a 3-angular ovary.
Harms, who elaborated Passifloraceae for the first and second editions of the “Pflanzenfamilien”, provided a figure of a section of the flower and a cross-section of the ovary (1.c. 3, 6a: 86, fig. 25 E-F. 1893, and 21: 495, fig. 218 E-F. 1925), maintaining Schumann’s observation that Hollrungia possesses an androgynophore which brings it alongside Passiflora, but differing from that genus by the undivided cap-shaped stigma. This kind of stigma is rare in the Passifloraceae and Harms recorded it in the family only for two other, monotypic African genera Crossostemma and Schlechterina.
