Notes.

Acalypha urophylla   has been considered to be a variety of A. reticulata   , but A. urophylla   can be distinguished by its sessile female bracts with dentate margins vs. pedicellate female bracts with crenate to subentire margins in A. filiformis   . (see notes in A. filiformis   ). See notes under A. gracilipes   , A. lamiana   and A. paxii   for the differences between those species and A. urophylla   .
