    Why is it not P. gracilior? The teeth?

    Hi Ron,

    I'm not saying it isn't, I just gave one suggestion, which may or may not be correct.

    PS that one's now Afrocarpus gracilior

    Your PS should really say that some (or many or even most) botanists now consider this plant to be Afrocarpus gracilior. Podocarpus gracilior is a perfectly valid name and I know many African botanists who still consider the species to be a Podocarpus.

    Yes: I used "P." so as not to confuse by using another, less familiar genus. The species was the point, not the genus.
