Macrosolen parasiticus

provided by wikipedia EN

Macrosolen parasiticus is a species of parasitic shrub in the family Loranthaceae.[2] It is commonly called parasite honeysuckle. It is widely distributed in tropical South and South West Indian regions especially in the Western Ghats.[3] Macrosolen parasiticus species were described by Danser (1938).[4]

Description

Macrosolen parasiticus is a parasitic shrub with thickened stem at nodes, like mistletoe. The oppositely arranged, ovate-lanceolate leaves have sharp tips and rounded bases. The leaf stalk (petiole) is 6–12 mm long. The flowers are few and stalkless. The peduncle carrying the spikes is up to 1 cm long. The flowers have a long, variegated, reddish flower tube, which is slightly curved. It has six, 5–6 mm long petals which are green and turned back. The fruit is an ovoid berry, green, with persistent sepals.[2] Flowering and fruiting occurs from December to May.[3]
