Rodda, Simonsson & S. Rahayu (2014)

The Hoya mindorensis complex is revised, types for the names involved are selected, and a new classification of the taxa is proposed. Hoya erythrostemma is separated once again from Hoya mindorensisHoya elmeri is identified as an earlier name for Hoya mindorensis subsp. superba, and a further new species, Hoya rintzii, from Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra and Borneo, is described. A key is provided as an aid to identification.

Keywords: Borneo, Hoya elmeri, Hoya erythrostemma, Hoya mindorensis subsp. mendozae, Hoya mindorensis subsp. superba, Hoya rintzii, Indonesia, Malaysia
