Papeda (Malayan name). Rutàcex, tribe Citreae. Under this name Hasskarl in 1842 created a new genus to include a form closely related to if not identical with Citrus Hystrix, DC. A number of species of Citrus closely related to C. Hystrix have been reported from the Indo-Malayan and western Polynesian regions. As these species are for the most part only imperfectly described, it is doubtful whether they are valid species or forms of one polymorphic species. This group of forms may constitute a subgenus under Citrus, distinguished by having very large broad-winged petioles sometimes equaling or even exceeding in area the lamina, small fls. with free stamens, rough frs. with sour and acrid pulp composed of very short pulp-vesicles, containing oil in the center. Citrus (Papeda) Hystrix, DC., probably includes Papeda Rumphii. Hassk. The forms of this subgenus are sometimes used in the Philippines as stocks on which to graft the commonly cult, species of Citrus. The frs. are not edible but are used by the natives of the Malayan and Polynesian islands in lieu of soap for washing the hair. CH
