  • Essig and Young (1985) accepted Gronophyllum leonardii, a nomen novum that they established to account for a name, Nengella brassii (Burret) Burret (syn. Leptophoenix brassii Burret), that could not be recombined in Gronophyllum due to a pre-existing publication of the name Gronophyllum brassii (Burret 1939). Having seen the type of Leptophoenix brassii, we are convinced that it falls within the wide range of variation that is encompassed by the complex species Hydriastele pinangoides, in particular in terms of leaf morphology, and we place it in synonymy accordingly.
