Notes. Despande et al. (2019: 16) noted: " Two varieties are recognized for this species in Africa, var. seyal and var. fistula (Schweinf.) Kyal. & Boatwr., both of which have been trialled (for gum production) in Pakistan (fide Kumar and Sane 2003); however, Ali (2014) did not indicate which variety currently occurs in Pakistan. Although the species is recorded for India by Kumar and Sane (2003) and Ali (2014), neither the variety nor the State of occurrence are indicated.".
