Ruta chalepensis (= R. graveolens).
[Note: I was thinking these two names are synonyms. But GRIN treats them separate. Any comments please?]

Ruta graveolens L. Sp. Pl. 1: 383. 1753

Ruta chalepensis L. Mant. Pl. 69. 1767

I dont know if they are synonyms or not, but if they are then Ruta
graveolens should have been an accepted name.
Then I found another

Ruta chalepensis Wall. Numer. List [Wallich] n. 7113.

Please comment!!

Please have a look at these links for pictures:
 
Do you see any difference in the plants, particularly, check the flower close-up pics.
And why R. chalepensis is called as 'fringed rue' while the other sp is knows as 'common rue'. May be the difference is in 'fringe'd nature of petals???
I hope some of our recent floras treat them as synonym.

I think they are different, see the fringed petals in one and almost entire petals in the other.
