The name is still invalid and efloras states it is advisable to postpone validating it until more complete collections, particularly with seeds, can be studied.[1]

The stilbene derivatives, gnetucleistol A, B and C, gnetifolin A, p-hydroxycinnamic acid, piceatannol, resveratrol,[2] bisisorhapontigenin A, gnetuhainin P, gnetulin,[3] the stilbenolignans, gnetucleistol F, gnetofuran A, lehmbachol D, gnetifolin F and gnetumontanin,[4] gnetucleistol D (2-methoxyoxyresveratrol), gnetucleistol E (3-methoxy-isorhapontigenin), rhapontigenin, isorhapontigenin, 4-methoxyresveratrol and pinosylvin[5] can be found in G. cleistostachyum.
