Remarks (internal):This is a polymorphic species, for which reason many collections have been described under many different specific epithets, as seen in the extensive synonymy given by Fidalgo & Fidalgo (1968). Recorded for Blumenau and Sáo Francisco (Bresadola, 1896; Hennings, 1897), it was first cited for the Island of Santa Catarina by Loguercio-Leite & Wright (1991).
