Microcitrus papuana(?) - (labelled warburgiana)
Growing in the nursery as 'warburgiana', that species would have produced round fruit.
This plant looked identical to the one I am growing as Microcitrus papuana, but about which I have always had some doubts as to the true identity.
The flowers had exactly the same form - extremely thin petals, not covering the ovary - which I have not seen, or seen described, on any other citrus species.
The fruits were not yet ripe and about 2cms long.
