  • 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."
