Applequist, W.L. (2016). A revision of the Malagasy Species of Homalium Sect. Eumyriantheia Warb. (Salicaceae). Candollea 71: 33–60. In English, English and French abstracts. DOI :  http://dx.doi.org/10.15553/c2016v711a7

Homalium sect. Eumyriantheia Warb. (Salicaceae) is the largest and most widespread fasciculate-stamened section of Homalium Jacq. Though the section is markedly heterogeneous, the Malagasy species appear to form a natural group. A new revisionary treatment of these species is presented and an identification key is provided.Fifteen species are recognized, of which five, i.e. Homalium dorrii Appleq., Homalium pseudoboinense Appleq., Homalium randrianasoloi Appleq., Homalium ranomafanicum Appleq., and Homalium schatzii Appleq., are newly described. Occasional hybridization is observed. Most species are endangered.
