Dorstenia (Moraceae) is a mainly tropical genus of some 170 species (Mabberley, 1987). There are 23 species in Cameroon where a decoction of the leaves is administered for the treatment of cough, headache and stomach pain (Bouquet, 1969). The genus is made up largely of herbaceous perennials with succulent and non-succulent scrambling rhizomes (Berg et al., 1989). The twigs of Dorstenia angusticornis were collected in February 2002 from Kumba South West Province of Cameroon. Voucher specimen (No 28165/sfcam) is deposited at the National Herbarium Yaounde, Cameroon.
