Notes.

Acalypha reticulata  has been usually considered as the accepted name of this species. Leandri (1942) noticed that A. filiformis  and A. reticulata  are conspecific, but he kept A. reticulata  as the accepted name. Applying the rule of priority, the accepted name must be A. filiformis  and A. reticulata  should be placed as a synonym.
