Nomenclatural notes
According to Womersley (2003: 148), this name must remain a nomen nudum until the type specimen can be located. He notes that no specimens have been found in M or L, or in other herbaria (pers. comm. from M. Wynne). It is possible it may be an older name for Robea costata or Platyclinia crenulata, but this is uncertain from the description. - (27 Jan 2009) - Wendy Guiry
