Aristolochia (Robinson et al. 2010), Aristolochia bracteolata (Wynter-Blyth 1957; Kunte 2000), Aristolochia griffithii (Wynter-Blyth 1957; Kunte 2000), Aristolochia indica (Wynter-Blyth 1957; Kunte 2000; Robinson et al. 2010), Aristolochia tagala (Wynter-Blyth 1957; Kunte 2000), Thottea siliquosa (Wynter-Blyth 1957; Kunte 2000) (Aristolochiaceae). Bragantia wallichii (=Thottea wallichii, see a note under Bragantia wallichii) (Robinson et al. 2010) (Aristolochiaceae). Dioscorea wallichii (Robinson et al. 2010) (Dioscoreaceae) has also been reported but this is clearly in error due to the confusion surrounding the name wallichii, which has variously been placed under Thottea and Bragantia.
