REMARKS

This species was described based on a plant growing in India , N Malabar, Kalpatta, Suryampat. The type should be at MH (formerly MADRAS herbarium, Coimbatore, Madras Herbarium No. 88134), but there was no response to our inquiry. The lectotype is very closely related to M. laterita but cannot be identified with certainty.
