Discussion:Bernardi 6476 has been tentatively included in this species. The [male] flowers are 2 mm in diam. when open, the leaves 6 X 15 mm, base of leaf-blade eglandulose, with stipules fallen off. This specimen also has many characteristics of C. suavis, but differing from it by lack of glands at the base of the blade and a more lanuginose rather than lepidote stellate indumentum. It m a y represent a new species, but the material is too inadequate for proper evaluation.
