Possibly present

  1. Tetrastigma diepenhorstii (Miq.) Latiff, Folia Malaysiana 2 (2001) 185; ≡ Vitis diepenhorstii Miq., Fl. Ind. Bat. Suppl. 1 (1860) 515; Type: from Indonesia. Distribution: Borneo, ?Philippines, Sumatra. Notes: P.B. Pelser (28-Aug-14): This species is listed for the Philippines by Wen et al. (2013), in which Wen 8261 (US) is cited as a representative specimen. Sequences of this specimen suggest that it might be Tetrastigma loheri (Obico et al. 2021). Presence in the Philippines therefore needs to be confirmed.
  2. Tetrastigma pachyphyllum (Hemsl.) Chun, Sunyatsenia 4 (1940) 235; ≡ Vitis pachyphylla Hemsl., J. Linn. Soc., Bot. 23(153) (1886) 135. = Tetrastigma strumarum (Planch.) Gagnep., Notul. Syst. (Paris) 1 (1910) 267; ≡ Tetrastigma crassipes var. strumarum Planch., Monogr. Phan. 5 (1887) 427. Distribution: Cambodia, China, India, Laos, ?Philippines, Vietnam. LUZON. Notes: P.B. Pelser (1-Sep-15): Tetrastigma pachyphyllum has only been reported for the Philippines by Wen et al. (2013). This might have been based on the misapplication of the name T. strumarum for Philippine plants belonging to T. harmandii (Merrill 1916, 1923). Therefore, it is uncertain if Tetrastigma pachyphyllum occurs in the Philippines.
  3. Tetrastigma scariosum (Blume) Planch. in A.DC., Monogr. Phan. 5 (1887) 441; ≡ Cissus scariosa Blume, Batav. Cour. 23-Mar-1825 (1825) 12; Type: from Java. = Tetrastigma pisicarpum (Miq.) Planch., Monogr. Phan. 5 (1887) 441; ≡ Vitis pisicarpa Miq., Ann. Mus. Bot. Lugd.-Bat. 1 (1863) 79; Type: from New Guinea. Distribution: Australia, Java, New Guinea, ?Philippines. LUZON, MINDANAO.
