Four species are transferred from Polyalthia to Huberantha. Four names are reduced to synonymy for the first time: Alphonsea sessiliflora to Meiogyne cylindrocarpa, Anaxagorea meyeriana to Marsypopetalum pallidum, Cyathostemma acuminatum to Uvaria wrayi and Polyalthia schefferi to Marsypopetalum littorale. Six names are lectotypified. A paper on Asian Annonaceae by Scheffer that appeared in volume 2 of the Annales du Jardin Botanique de Buitenzorg is shown to have been published in 1881 rather than 1885 as generally cited.
