This profile information and associated coding has been adapted from Jessup (2011), Harden et al. (2014), and Nooteboom (1982, 2004). The flowers of this genus are reported in Nooteboom (1982; 2004) and Jessup (2011) to be mostly bisexual but also functionally unisexual and dioecious, however this has not been specifically reported for this species.
