Key characteristics

Closely related to M. filifolia (once treated as a subspecies of this taxon) but can be easily separated by having non-saccate or slightly saccate (vs. strongly saccate) sepal bases, obscurely papillate (vs. conspicuously papillate) petal bases, and ovoid (vs. narrowly oblong) anthers (Salariato et al. 2014).
