Based on a fruiting specimen from “c. 1350 m, along streams, Mt. Masingit, Lubuagan, Kalinga Subprovince, Luzon, Philippines, on ii. 1920, by RAMOS & EDAÑO, Bur. Sci. 37548”. The holotype was destroyed in the Manila herbarium. An iso-type (US) does not agree with the description in that it is not stoloniferous, the stipules are partially adnate to the petiole, and some of the leaves are sparsely pubescent. This material may be referable to V. philippica, which is known from the same locality, but it differs from that species in the well-developed glands on the marginal crenations of some leaves. This, together with the absence of flowers and the firm reference to stolons in the destroyed holotype, precludes any definite application of this specific name.
