Taxon discussion

This species can be readily distinguished by the creeping rhizomes, free venation, 2-pinnatifid lamina, rachis ablate and tawny indument ( Moran et al. 2014). The closest species are Hypoderris brownii J.Sm. and H. nicotianifolia (Baker) R.C.Moran, Labiak & J.Prado, which present reticulate veins ( Moran et al. 2014).
