Revision of the genus Claoxylon (Euphorbiaceae)

Claoxylon

Which species are present in Malesia? Where and under which circumstances do they occur? How to recognize them? Typical for this genus is the sandpaper feeling of the dried leaves, which is caused by needle-like crystals that protrude the surface after drying of the leaves. Also typical are the stamens that look like Mickey-Mouse heads.
