Dear friends,

Are Wedelia urticaefolia (also spelt urticifolia) and W. wallichii synonymous ?
If so, which is the accepted name now ?

One reference just read is: ASTERACEAE Tribe HELIANTHEAE [Draft] ... most probably pertains to Flora of Chna (eFlora)
... http://hua.huh.harvard.edu/china/mss/volume20/Asteraceae-MO-Heliantheae_edited.htm


Regards.

Dear Dinesh Sir,

Wedelia urticaefolia DC. is not synonymous to Wedelia wallichii Less.

But, Wedelia wallichii Less. is basionym of Wedelia montana var.
wallichii ( Less. ) H.Koyama

This is according to www.ipni.org

Pankaj
