Note: This species is very variable as delimited by Hedge et al. (1998). In addition to the variation they mention, corolla colour is variable. Based on the material now available, the distinction with A. flaccida seems to be somewhat uncertain. Closer examination may reveal a more coherent classification of these plants.
