Discussion:

This species is apparently endemic to Cuba. It has been treated by previous workers as conspecific with S. capitata Vahl and S. czotica (Gmel.) Standi. [= S. vahlii Steyerm.], but is separated from them by the longer corollas, usually thicker leaf-blades, and scarcely or not at all manifest lateral nerves. The leaf-blades are generally broadly rounded to subcordate at base and broadly rounded at the summit.
