Note
Anredera floribunda is a rarely collected species that is recognised by the comparatively large flowers that are pale when dry and has entire stigmas, the latter character separating it from the closely related A. vesicaria. Moquin-Tandon (1849b) indicated only one specimen when describing Boussingaultia floribunda ("v.s. in h. Mus. Paris"), but if this is kept in P-Moq. or P is uncertain. The probable isotype in P is annotated "Isotype" and "Holotype in H. Moquin Tandon", but the supposed holotype has not been located.
