Annotation: Roxburg described this species in 1832 in his Flora Indica. He wrote that it grew wild in Bengal and was cultivated at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Calcutta. A careful search of various herbaria known to hold collections made by Roxburg failed to reveal any authentic material of the species. In Wallich’s catalogue (1831), published the year before the protologue, two collections can be attributed to Pandanus foetidus: Wallich 8588 & 8591. The latter of these represents a staminate inflorescence (E [E00567756]; FI; K; M [M0175810]) from Sillet [Sylhet] in Bangladesh. The other collection, Wallich 8588, consists of leaves and separate drupes from Amherst in Burma. This collection, held at K with some possible duplicates in M, was cited under the nomen nudum, P. wallichianus (Martelli, 1913). The K specimen is designated as a neotype by Callmander & al., 2012: 333).
