Comment 
EtymologyThe species name exsuccida is the feminine form of the adjectival form of the Latin word exsuccida (or esuccus) meaning juiceless or sapless. It refers to the habitat of the species in the sclerophyll forest patches of western coastal New Caledonia. These forests occur on the dry west coast of New Caledonia and are often referred to as "dry forests."
