The cited collection consists only of loose leaf-fragments mounted on several herbarium sheets. These fragments resemble the leaves of D. acuminata, but differ clearly in the size of the leaflets. No information is given about the plant or about particular ecological circumstances. The inadequate material and the complete absence of additional information make it impossible to say whether the collection belongs to D. acuminata or represents a new taxon. Therefore it seems wise to separate it from the rest of Dictyoneura without naming it, until more material becomes available.
