This species, new in Graham Duncan's new book, is included as an accepted
name in the Kew World Checklist,
which is probably a much better reference than Plant Finder.

Be aware The  Plant List is usually slow to update recent changes and new
species.  If something is not included it only means it's just not listed.
In theory if it is generally accepted as a synonym it would still be listed
there.  It seems none of the new species from the monograph are listed.  I
don't think any of these are contested.   I know of many changes in
Zingiberaceae  that are widely accepted that aren't listed there
correctly.  It's a useful resource but has its limitations
