Notes edit


  • Originally published under the specific epithet Yokotai, this, however, should be amended as yokotae per the ICN (ed. 2017), Art. 60.8 (a) ("If the personal name ends with a vowel or ‑er, substantival epithets are formed by adding the genitive inflection appropriate to the gender and number of the person(s) honoured (...) except when the name ends with ‑a, in which case adding ‑e (singular) or ‑rum (plural) is appropriate (e.g. triana‑e for Triana (m), pojarkova‑e for Pojarkova (f), orlovskaja‑e for Orlovskaja (f)).") and also its Recommendation 60F.1 ("All specific and infraspecific epithets should be written with an initial lower-case letter.").


  • Knaap-van Meeuwen (1970: 38) regards Maniltoa vestita A.C.Sm. as a synonym of this taxon, but both Radosavljevic and Plants of the World Online do not accept such a view.
