Closely related to I. Nephrocarpa from which it can be distinguished by the: appressed (not crisped) indumentum on the stems and leaflets; narrower leaflets; longer peduncles; and discoid, flattened (not subglobose) fruits. However, there is a considerable degree of overlap in these characters with some rather intermediate specimens. Further study might result in these two species being better treated as varieties. Generally found at higher altitudes than I. Nephrocarpa and (unlike that species) apparently never on the coastal plains.
