  bracnhing petiols

Hiya All

There are leaves that SEEM to have branching petioles - Pentaphragama does
it as does Cyclanthaceae and a few other families - but what is actually
happening is the leaf blade 'forgets' (Wilbert please forgive the
teleology!) to develop along all the ribs and thus ending up with a leaf
that looks like it has a branching petiole.
