    Sterculiaceae, Martin Cheek & Laurence Dorr; Nesogordonia, Laurence Dorr, Lisa Barnett. Flora of Tropical East Africa. 2007

    Note
    The large, showy, spreading campanulate, yellow, petal-like calyx that is leaf-opposed, and the 5- or 4-valved, densely setose capsules readily distinguish Fremontodendron from the native Sterculiaceae with which family it is traditionally placed although recent molecular work (see introduction above) has placed it in Bombacaceae.
