Description:
Slender climber with delicate opposite leaves. No milky latex. Sepals 5.
Notes: Specimens are present in SRGH (Müller 2841) and KEW (Chase 576, Chase 5473, Wild 4507, Harder et al. 3817). It has been found, again in Vumba (Hyde & Wursten sn), Tsetsera, Mozambique (Wursten sight record) and on Mt Gorongosa in Mozambique (Ballings 487). It appears to be very close to the East African species T. tenuipedunculata, differing mainly in having much larger anther wings. As this has proven to be a good key character in this genus, it is likely to be a new species, yet to be described (David Goyder, pers. comm).
