Notes.

Coode (1982) accepted three subspecies with six varieties within Acalypha integrifolia   , but we find the varieties he placed within subsp. integrifolia  to overlap too much to accept as distinct taxa. See A. marginata   (Poir.) Spreng. for our treatment of what Coode treated within A. integrifolia subsp. marginata   (Poir.) Coode and subsp. panduriformis  Coode.
