2 Specimens in fruit may be confused with H. pachycarpa, which has minutely pubescent fruits (and pubescent ovaries), at least at the base towards the insertion of the stipe. 1 Specimens of var. crassivalva generally have a stout habit with coarse twigs and large leaves, and relatively large perianths; these sizes fall, however, within those accepted for the type variety.
