Nomenclatural notes
Name introduced in Zanardini (1843: 53) with the following comment "Meglio conosciute ambedue le forme del frutto potrebbe forse appartenere ad altro genere, essendo molto distinta pel suo abito esteriore. La specie fu raccolta dal Sandri nei dintorni di Zara." [Better known both forms of fruit could perhaps belong to another genus, being very distinct for its outer appearance. The species was collected by Sandri in the vicinity of Zara.] It is debatable whether or not this is sufficient description to validate the name. - (16 Nov 2017) - M.D. Guiry
