The Plant List seems to be making mess of things. I am tired of pointing out their mistakes. A. ficoidea (L.) Sm. is not recorded in IPNI, the most authentic source of Plant names. Please also note that in the Plant list there is no synonym which has Linnaeus as the author. If not Gomphrena ficoidea then what is the basionym of A. ficoidea (L.) Sm. My frequent advise to members that if the name exists in GRIN, it is better to follow it.
I agree there is lot of confusion in the net, but A. paronychoides is a soft stemmed plant of wet grounds, often found along banks of drains, streams and river banks. It is totally creeping and rooting herb. I have photographed and collected it both in Delhi and Kashmir.
