Taxonomy

2 In H. reticulata the male flower, including the androecium, is very similar to that of H. flocculosa, H. grandis, and H. tomentosa, obviously all related species. 1 Horsfieldia reticulata may be confused with H. motleyi, which differs in its inarticulated pedicels, much smaller pubescent flowers with a quite different androecium, the leaves dull olivaceous brown on drying, and sunken lateral nerves.
