This species is distinguished from W. fraxinea by the pilose indumentum on the underside of the leaflets and from W. devogelii by the longer pedicels. Its affinities seem to be with W. hutchinsonii and W. luzoniensis from the Philippines but better collections are needed to determine whether it is in fact worthy of specific rank.
