Dear friends,

1) Justicia wynaadensis (Nees) Heyne ex T.And.
2) Justicia wynaadensis (Nees) T. Anders.
3) Justicia wynaadensis (Nees) Wall. ex T. Anders
4) Justicia wynaadensis B.Heyne is an unresolved name at http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-2331014

Have not thoroughly combed internet for any other instance(s) of J. wynaadensis

Sure will sound funny, but the trouble is how and what to query because of no knowledge !!
Gazing (and attempting) to understand these 4 instances did not really help.
Intention is to know which among this names is well known.

Regards.
Dinesh

Many thanks Garg ji for resurfacing this query.

Putting response received from Manoj Chandran at Indian Flora (Facebook Group) :

I think all the four are the same. The original name (basionym) was Adhatoda wynaadensis proposed by Nees. I think B.Heyne suggested a new combination with Justicia as genus. This was later explained and published by T. Anderson. I think you should find out T. Anderson's publication of this species, which would give the details of the history of the nomenclature. Some authors considered this plant as Justicia latifolia Vahl and so I think the use of Wall for Wallich is by mistake. But now that J.w is a different species from J.l, the name of Vahl is not relevant. So, for anyone considering Justicia wynadensis a valid species and correct nomenclature, the citation should be Justicia wynaadensis (Nees) B.Heyne ex T.Anderson - You can always abbrieviate the authors'names by removing the initials or further by shortening the name with a dot next to it like And. or Ander. So, finally it means Justicia wynaadensis, a species originally described by Nees with the present nomenclature suggested by B. Heyne and validly published by T. Anderson.

Many thanks to Manoj Chandran.

Regards.
Dinesh
