In Index Kewensis the name Stalagmites erosipetala Miq., J. Bot. Néerl. 1 (1851) 126, was taken up as a synonym, printed in italics, because the generic name Stalagmites was referred to Garcinia. However, no transfer or reduction was given for this species, but it was added ‘(sp. dub.)’. After the revision of Cratoxylum by Mr. A. J. F. Gogelein was in print it was found that among odd unlocalized sheets there was the type of this species, ticketed by Miquel himself. It is in the Utrecht Herbarium, sheet 112525B. It appears to have been collected in South China by B. Krone (B. Krone no. 168).
