Notes

The single species was known only from the type which was destroyed in World War II. No duplicate has been located so the above description and that of the species is based on information published by PER-KINS. The presence of a velum in what appears to be a member of the Mollinedieae is so exceptional that the interpretation of PERKINS must be considered doubtful until further material can be examined.
