Specimen CHIRIQUI: Rio Chiriqui to Remedios, Woodson et al. 1180 (MO, holotype). COCLE: El Valle de Anton, Seibert 493 (MO).
Note Both of the collections cited above had very poor flowering material, and part of the description is based on Woodson's Latin diagnosis (Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 26: 299-300. 1939). The specimen from Cocle had been identified as P. ipomaeifolia A. DC. by Woodson. However, the squamellae, pectinate and several in number, are definitely characteristic of P. remediorum.
