The Australian Plant Name Index (APNI) is a tool for the botanical community that deals with plant names and their usage in the scientific literature, whether as a current name or synonym. APNI does not recommend any particular taxonomy or nomenclature.

Showing Brassiantha hedraiantheroides
Type: AUSTRALIA. Queensland: Cook District, Cultivated Tolga (ex-Browns Creek, Yarrabah), 11 November 1998, A. Ford 2122 (holotype: BRI!; isotypes: CNS! (plus spirit), CS!, K!, L!, MO!, NSW!, PRE!, Z!).
APC Dist.: Qld
Etymology: "The specific epithet reflects the similarity of this species to the monotypic Hedraianthera, a related genus in Celastraceae (from the Greek hedraios, sessile, and anthera, anther, referring to the apparently sessile anthers), and the suffix - oides, like or resembling. In addition, this new species was previously known as Hedraianthera sp. (Mossman), and thus the chosen epithet commemorates this historical fact."
