When a species is collected from the wild, I feel it is wise to identify it, propagate it and name it. In this way it will eventually get it into commercial channels, be distributed to all those interested in this genus and thus be preserved. If in the future the species is lost through natural causes or forest destruction it will still be here on earth in your collection.

Genus Eriostemma (Schlechter) Kloppenburg & Gilding
We for a long time now have been aware that the species in this section have very little in common with the Genus Hoya and so have made the decision to place it into the Genus status. In addition to the differences noted by Dr. Schlechter, the characters of the Genus Eriostemma (Schlechter) Kloppenburg and Gilding are as follows:
NOTE: Appendix 1 through 5 are at the end of Part 2 and are as follows:
Appendix 1: - Pollinarium Measurements in order of occurrence in file - Pollinarium Measurements in order by pollinium length - Pollinarium Measurements in order of Pollinium width - Pollinarium Measurements in order of Retinaculum length - Pollinarium Measurements in order of retinaculum width Appendix II Corolla - As they occur in file - Sinus – sinus in ascending order - Sinus – center in ascending order - Sinus –apex in ascending order - Apex – center in ascending order Appendix III - Calyx and Column measurements in centimeters - Calyx length in ascending order - Calyx widest in ascending order - Column length in ascending order - Column diameter in ascending order - Column base in ascending order Appendix IV - Foliage descriptions from literature - Measurements in centimeters Appendix V - Place of origin, altitude, peduncle, pedicel - Measurements in centimeters.
In attempting to find new relationships of structure in this genus I have attempted to group the translators and the caudicles (two separate structures, one above the other normally) into groups of similar structure. The data was taken from my years of study and accumulation of data on the Pollinaria of this genus.
