The species concept used here follows the broad view of H. Sleumer (1984), who considered many of the named variants of Schoepfia schreberi to be synonyms. Although they display variable vegetative morphology, flower and fruit morphology appears relatively constant. The floral biology of S. schreberi requires investigation. Sleumer indicated that anthers in pin flowers lack pollen; however, P. B. Tomlinson (1980) stated that the heterostylous condition is apparently efficient, given that trees of both forms set fruit. Root parasitism of ten host species was documented by C. R. Werth et al. (1979).
