I would like to bring to light a factor which I perceive to be
relevant and that is the historical confusion between Ipomoea digitata
and Ipomoea mauritiana.
Ipomoea digitata and Ipomoea mauritiana are both legitimate species
but descriptions of the 2 contain sufficient over-lapping features to
So far , I have been unable to (with any certainty) distinguish
between Ipomoea digitata and Ipomoea mauritiana and photos on the web
using both epithets appear to be the same plant.
I have seen Ipomoea digitata listed as a synonym of Ipomoea mauritana
and Ipomoea mauritiana listed as a synonym of Ipomoea digitata.
Here is a synonym I have for Ipomoea digitata :
Ipomoea paniculata var. digitata
Here is the list of synonyms I have for Ipomoea mauritiana :
A check for both names in
may prove useful
There are various subtypes listed for Ipomoea digitata
I perceive that Ipomoea mauritiana must be clearly distinguished from
Ipomoea digiitata before any definitive ID's can be arrived at for
these 2 similarly featured species.
I hope my thoughts on the matter may be of some value...
