Polygala aristeguietae Wurdack, Bol. Soc. Venez. Ci. Nat. 32: 98. 1961.

Chodat’s original description was misleading in several particulars (“Caulis glaber”; “Semina longe conica”); however, a syntype (Funck & Schlim 118, W) matches Aristeguieta’s specimens in all details. Funck & Schlim’s collection was made at Guanaguana, Edo. Monagas, Venezuela.
