In length of pod and number of ovules var. odibilis resembles M. quadrivalvis, but the slender replum is that of M. diplotricha, from which it seems not to differ in any other character. Except for the type and Ortega 4903 from Sinaloa (US) all other specimens of M. diplotricha from southwestern Mexico that I have seen are in young flower; some of them may, in reality, represent this unexpected form. The extremely small size of the unfertilized ovules makes a count difficult and uncertain.
