This name is superfluous. The species epithet should be provided with a new combination based on Neodypsis loucoubensis Jum. Dransfield and Beentje's did not make this combination because the epithet "loucoubensis" is too close to Chrysalidocarpus lucubensis Becc., a synonym of Dypsis madagascariensis (Becc.) Beentje & J. Dransf. We believe reason for not doing the combination is unfounded regarding the ICBN.
