Harvey et al. (2009: 269) note that this is a putative heterotypic synonym of A. beauvoisii (synonymy proposed in Seagrief (1984: 4) on the basis of a personal communication from H.W. Johansen; more recently considered a synonym by Moura & Guimarães (2005: 21)). They also note that Yendo (1905: 4) previously had proposed the combination A. beauvoisii ß crassiuscula (W.H. Harvey) Yendo on the basis of Harvey's taxon A. exilis ß crassiuscula. - (29 Apr 2010) - Wendy Guiry
