A osmastonii Gamble

A deciduous tree said to attain 90 ft in the wild and found in the Sikkim Himalaya. It is intermediate in character between A. campbellii and A. laevigatum, differing from the former in its three-lobed leaves and less divergent fruit-keys, and from the latter in having the leaves lobed instead of entire, on longer petioles. It is, perhaps, a hybrid between the two species, but Gamble considered that it was too widely distributed for this to be a likely explanation.
