LEAF DESCRIPTION: SIMPLE, 2 1/2" to 4" long and half as wide, narrow elliptic to oval shape with serrated margins and acuminate to cuspidate
This ensures that the cuspidate
setae on their medial edges hit the particles from the ventro-posterior and push them in a dorso-anterior direction.
Leaves persistent (2-)3-4 years, usually 2-ranked, usually papillose, prominently long-decurrent, alternate (opposite in Amentotaxus), linear to linear-lanceolate, attenuate, acuminate or cuspidate
, glabrous, sometimes papillose on the midrib or margins; petioles 1-2 mm long or lacking, margins entire, revolute, upper (adaxial) surface dark green, lower (abaxial) surface dark green to dull yellow or yellow-green; hypostomatic, the stomata in 2 longitudinal, glaucous or pale-green to fulvous bands, single-veined, the midrib a ridge, groove, or not evident on upper surface, raised on lower surface, resin in a single canal (Amentotaxus), scattered in the parenchyma (Torreya) or lacking.
