Emarhendia bettiana (M.R.Hend.) R. Kiew, A.Weber & B.L.Burtt
Etymology: Named for M. [Murray] R. [Ross] Henderson (1899-1982), a Scottish botanist working mainly in Singapore and the Malay Peninsula.
Ecology: On damp limestone rocks, especially at cave entrances.
Distribution: Malay Peninsula (Pahang: Bkt. Charas and vicinity).
Notes: The genus is based on Paraboea bettiana M.R.Hend., which is discordant with the other species of Paraboea (Burtt 1984). A unique feature is the patch of glands on the upper lip of the corolla, also remarkable are the straight plagiocarpic fruits opening only on the upper side.
