Synonyms[1]

Amalocalyx is a genus of plant in family Apocynaceae consisting of lianas often found clinging to trees. It was first described as a genus in 1898.

Three species names have been created in the genus. Some authors recognize all three as distinct species, but we follow the World Checklist maintained by Kew Royal Botanic Garden[1] in considering the genus as constituting a single species, Amalocalyx microlobus.[2]

These lianas are found in altitude ranges of 800 to 1 000 m in Southern Yunnan (South-east China), Laos, Cambodia, Burma, Thailand, Vietnam, and western Malaysia.[1]
