The present species possibly is close to H. fulva, which differs in its leaves becoming dull and finely wrinkled above on drying. Horsfieldia perangusta has conspicuously incurved blade margins, and a narrow line-shaped midnerve above. Flowers are not known. Male buds of H. fulva are conspicuously elongate, a feature uncommon in Horsfieldia.
