Key to Viscum in Madagascar

Given that about one fourth of the ca. 120 species of Viscum occur in Madagascar, this country represents the second most diverse landmass following continental Africa for species diversity.  Halle (1964) provided a treatment for Viscum (under Loranthaceae) wherein 31 species were recognized. I translated her key from French to English and it is available HERE as a pdf file.
