The distribution of var. eugeniifolia largely coincides with that of var. farquhariana. Specimens from Borneo here referred to var. eugeniifolia were formerly sometimes determined as Gymnacranthera contracta, a species now accepted in a much more restricted sense. Also specimens intermediate with var. zippeliana occur, especially in Sabah and Sarawak.
