Notes

  • This species had been assigned to § Sphenanthera in error, as it has dehiscent fruit with distinct wings. I have re-assigned it here to § Petermannia, as it has (i) bifid placentae, (ii) male flowers with two tepals and (iii) two female flowers at the base of a larger cymose male inflorescence. The specimen collected by de Vriese and Teijsmann in L (annotated by Miquel) is a possible syntype, although the protologue refers only to the "original exemplar von Miquel in Herb. Hort. Bog.", without collector information. (Hughes, M. An annotated checklist of Southeast Asian Begonia. 2008)
