Remya krishnan RV, Santhosh kumar ES, Radhamany PM, Valsaladevi G

Cinnamomum mathewianum var. ponmudianum from Kerala, India is described as a variety new to science. It differs from the typical variety by the smaller ovate-lanceolate leaves with entire margins and long acuminate to caudate leaf apex. Further it can be distinguished by the shorter axillary or extra-axillary panicles with fewer number of flowers in the inflorescence, pink to dark maroon peduncle and the shorter pedicels.
