Taxonomy

According to the flowers this variety seems related to H. penangiana, a species also with dotted leaves and a perianth of similar size and shape (partly), but with the androecium round in cross section and with fewer thecae, 10-18(-20); in H. penangiana the twigs are more slender and the leaves generally smaller.
