Biologie : Note on S. aubrytiana Carrière, non Gérôme & Labroy 1903: in Rev. Hort. 1861: 448 and 449 (1861) Carrière names a plant grown at the “Museum” (Paris) together with “S. canaliculata, zeylania, guineense, longiflora”, and sent from Gabon (locality not given) by M. Aubry-le-Comte. Carrière compares this new plant with S. longiflora, which he describes as follows. Leaves coriaceous, very wide already from the base, sometimes reaching 10 cm in width, then very abruptly rounded at apex, ending in a small cylindrical obtuse mucro whitish as the the leaf margins; the upper surface is smooth, shiny as if varnished; the leaves are very strongly cross-banded, a feature which is visible in the old leaves only on the lower surface.
Ecologie : It may be preferable to consider S. aubrytiana Carrière, as a doubtful species. It is, however, retained as a distinct species by Mansfeld (2013): 37.
