Notas/Notes: González-Gutiérrez (2007) determined that the lectotype of I. riedlaei (Riedle s.n. P) belongs to I. nitida var. repanda. Recent uses of the names I. riedlaei and I. urbaniana var. riedlaei (e.g. Liogier 1994 [III: 17]), have been misapplied to small-leaved individuals of I. urbaniana growing on serpentine soils (González-Gutiérrez 2007, Axelrod 2011).

Historia y distribución/History and distribution: Britton & Wilson (1924 [V(4): 513]), Liogier & Martorell (1982), Liogier (1994 [III: 17]) and Liogier & Martorell (2000) all reported I. nitida sensu stricto from Puerto Rico, not sensu lato as described by Axelrod (2011) since I. nitida var. repanda was known as a full species (I repanda) from other West Indian islands at that time. González-Gutiérrez (2007) determined that some plants from Puerto Rico were actually I. nitida var. repanda (e.g., specimens from Maricao State Forest and Susúa State Forest). Axelrod (2011) then stated that all plants from Puerto Rico were variety repanda, but this seems unlikely given that Puerto Rico is right in the middle of the range of the typical variety. The Flora of the West Indies (Acevedo-Rodríguez & Strong 2015) follows González-Gutiérrez and considers both taxa native to Puerto Rico, and they both have been collected in Maricao State Forest.
