Note This genus includes 3-4 species of Panama and tropical South America, which occur in lowlands or at middle elevations. It is not clear from the material at hand or from the literature that this genus is distinct from Havetia H.B.K. Vesque (1893) argued that the separation of the two genera by Planchon and Triana was based on a misinterpretation of the material and united the two. Engler (1925) however, maintained the two genera as distinct, but the distinctions he saw may not be valid. Should the two genera be united, then the species included here, Havetiopsis flexilis, would be known as Havetia flexilis (P1. & Tr.) Vesque.
