Comment 
EtymologyThe species name “purnamai” is in dedication to the phenomenal public figure, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, regent of Belitung Timur Regency from 3 August 2005 until 22 December 2006 and Governor of Jakarta from 19 November 2014 until 9 May 2017, who ran a strong and honest government in these administrative areas.
