- bracteolis prominentibus apiculatis, seminibus spadiceis, ala cuspidata (F. Mueller), with the bracteoles prominent, apiculate, with the seeds date-colored [i.e. a deep, reddish-brown], with the wing cuspidate.

- seminibus lucenti-spadiceis (F. Mueller), with the seeds shining-red-brown.

- valvae extus spadiceae, nitentes, reticulato-venosae, intus sordide fuscae (F. Mueller), the valves externally spadiceous [i.e.deep reddish-brown], shining, reticulate-veined, internally a dirty blackish-brown.

- seminibus minutis reniformi-pyriformibus splendenti-spadiceis subtilissime seriato-punctulatis (F. Mueller), with the seeds tiny, kidney-shaped to pyriform, gleaming-spadiceous [i.e. chestnut-brown], very slightly seriate-punctulate [i.e. with tiny punctae in rows].
