It is based on an examination of 574 collection numbers which are preserved in the Herbarium Bogoriense, Bogor ( BO); Herbarium Manokwariense, The State University of Papua, Manokwari (MAN); and National Herbarium of the Netherlands, Leiden Branch( L). The Leiden collections were loaned to Bogor for this project. Method used follows the normal practice in herbarium taxonomy. Morphological characters, which have been used as the diagnostic taxonomic features, are used in evaluating the species of Popowia Endl. Vegetative morphology: leaf shape, leaf base, leaf texture, number of main nerves, and the petiole length; and reproductive morphology: pedicel length, sepal shape, petal shape, and fruit size, are the main characters used for determinity the species in the genus.
