    Note: Perrier de la Bâthie (in Fl. Madagasc.) recognised a var occurring near Mahajanga that was distinguished by its hairy young stems. This occurs elsewhere with the range of this variable species outside Madagascar and probably does not merit formal recognition. The varietal name has not been validly published.
