Wedd. in Ann. Sc. Nat. Ser. 4, i. 200 ; Monogr. 373 ; DC. Prodr. xvi. i. 207 ; dioecious, leaves alternate coriaceous elliptic-lanceolate acuminate crenulate strongly 3-nerved, above smooth or rugulose glabrous, beneath pale finely velvety-pubescent, stipules connate, clusters in simple spikes each with a cordate bract, fem. short simple pendulous, fem. perianth elliptic compressed ciliate. Brand. For. Fl. 403 ; Blume Mus. Bot. ii. 212. B. nervosa, Madden in Journ. As. Soc. Beng. xvii. i. 587. Urtica rugosula, Wall. Cat. 4597. U. venosa, Wall. Cat. 460 B.  
SUBTROPICAL HIMALAYA ; from Garwhal to Bhotan, alt. 2-4000 ft., Wallich, &c.  
A small tree, branchlets robust, glabrous, petioles and leaves beneath hoary or yellowish white, bark wrinkled pale. Leaves 3-5 in., teeth obtuse, nerves penninervuled, nervules anastomosing ; stipules ovate ; petiole 1/2-1 in., stout. Fl. clusters pisiform ; receptacle hirsute. Achenes elliptic, stipitate, acute at both ends, ventricose.—Dr. King sends as var. tenuis a Sikkim plant with thinner ovate coarsely serrate perfectly glabrous leaves 3-5 in. long ; it is in male fl. only. Clarke gathered the same at 7000 ft. elevation, and refers it to malabarica, but its inflorescence is spicate. It appears to me to be quite a different species. Leaves opposite (and alternate in B. platyphylla).
