Abstract:

An account of the genus Hexapora (Lauraceae) is presented. It comprises morphological descriptions of the genus and species, a provisional IUCN conservation assessment, ecological information and taxonomic notes. The morphology of the genus is compared to that of a number of possible close relatives, leading to the conclusion that it most likely belongs within the Beilschmiedia clade, and is likely closely related to Sinopora.
