Pelser (29-Aug-20): Philippine plants of this taxon are also sometimes referred to as Homalomena humilis (Jack) Hook.f. Homalomena pygmaea and Homalomena humilis are two widely applied names for plants belonging to the Homalomena humils/pygmaea complex, for which currently no satisfactory species delimitation exists (Boyce & Wong 2009). Pending further study, we here follow Kurniawan et al. (2011) and list this complex as a single morphologically variable species of which the earliest name in Homalomena is Homalomena humilis.
