Dendrocnide cordifolia - leaf detail

One of three species of stinger at Malanda Falls Environmental Park, Malanda, Atherton Tablelands, near Cairns, Far North Queensland, Australia.

This species can be growing right beside D. moroides and is most easily recognised by the petiole attachment at the base of the leaf (not peltate).

December 2008.

D. cordata is now thought to be a separate species from northern Cape York.
