Leptolaena pauciflora is a small shrub to medium-sized tree occurring from humid littoral forest at sea level to subhumid and montane woodland and thicket up to 2,300 m (Fig. 3). Other than habit, it is remarkably uniform in vegetative and reproductive characters throughout its broad ecological range, and is easily recognized by its small, broadly ovate to circular or rhombic leaves usually not exceeding 2 cm in length.

Of the two syntypes cited in the protologue of L. pauciflora (Baron 1390 and Meller s. n.), the former is here chosen as the lectotype. Syntypes were also cited for L. parviflora (Scott-Elliot 2554 and Scott-Elliot 2713), the first of which is here chosen as the lectotype.

Vernacular names.Amaninambilahy, Anjananjana, Anjananjanalahy, Fotina, Foto, Fotona, Fotona Madinidravina, Fotondahy, Hazomaritra, Laro, Madiorano, Milaliambomadinika, Taolandaro.

Conservation status.With an extent of occurrence far exceeding 20,000 km 2, and c. 33 sub-populations, six of which are present in protected areas, L. pauciflora is considered not threatened, and assigned a preliminary status of Lower Risk (LR).
