Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology: Locally common in semi-deciduous woodland in the Muqadrihon Pass and Reyged plateau. Altitude of 450–550 m.

Distinguished from all other species of Chapmannia on Soqotra by its narrow leaflets. It could, perhaps, be confused with narrow-leaved forms C. gracile (with which it sometimes grows) but can be separated from that species by its many-flowered inflorescence and the general absence of indumentum on its stem, leaves and calyx.
Systems: Terrestrial
