Since this species was published it has been a subject of discussion. The namne is according to the publication derived from the ancient name of Sumatrera - Andala. Some of the critique that has emerged is that the name is a fiction of imagination, that Andala is the name of a fictive charachter (i.e Andal).

Whether the name Hoya andalensis should be valid or not I will leave to the leading experts to decide. Until further notice my plant will keep the name it came with. However, according to A Comprehensive Indonesian-English Dictionary (p.36) Andalas is a nickname for Sumatra and the information is also present in a Dutch wordbook from 1839. Also the oldest university of Sumatra is named Universitas Andalas.

Hoya andalensis is very similar to Hoya brevialata and Hoya incurvula
