References:— Pax & Hoffmann (1924: 18), Pittier et al. (1947: 80), Seymour (1979: 165), Cardiel (1994: 204, 1995a: 42, 1995b: 183, 1999a: 266), Govaerts et al. (2000: 77), Murillo (2004: 187), Levin (2008: 366).

Notes:— The lectotype (H. Karsten 127) was first described as Linostachys urticifolia   , a legitimate name in Linostachys   but illegitimate in Acalypha   , being blocked by Acalypha urticifolia Poiret (1804: 208)   . Müller Argoviensis (1866) synonymized Schlechtendal’s species under Acalypha bisetosa Bertero ex Sprengel (1826: 879)   , a Puerto Rican species now excluded from subgenus Linostachys   . Urban (1899) recognized that the Puerto Rican and theVenezuelan materials were distinct, and proposed Acalypha mulleriana   as a nomen novum for the latter. We therefore consider that Linostachys urticifolia   should be treated as the basionim of Acalypha muelleriana   . After a thorough study of the Colombian collections, we did not find sufficient difference to maintain A. colombiana   as a different species. Accordingly, we propose to treat it as a synonym of A. mulleriana   .
