Octopoma N.E.Br. in Gard. Chron., ser. 3, 87: 72. 1930 sec. Hartmann (2001b)
Octopoma has been recognised by several authors (Hartmann 2001b) and Klak & al. (2013). However, the two infrageneric groups distinguished on account of differences in fruit morphology (Hartmann 2001b) were not confirmed by Klak & al. (2013).
