Knema mamillata is related to K. membranifolia, K intermedia, and K. uligi-nosa, especially to the latter. Knema uliginosa differs in flowers with persistent much shorter indumentum, and staminal disc convex or only low-mammillate; in K mamillata the mammilla is conspicuous, up to 1 mm long, nearly as long as the androphore.
