Thanks Sir, ironically same species in my earlier three threads have been placed under - 1) C. melo L., 2) C. melo L. subsp. melo and 3) Cucumis melo L. subsp. agrestis (Naudin) Pangalo var. agrestis Naudin!

Thank you

C. melo because most authors/databases (say The Plant List) don't recognise any infraspecific taxa within C. melo
C. melo subsp. melo because GRIN data base treats it so, but also lists C. melo subsp. agrestis var. agrestis, because wild populations of C. melo are more commonly listed under subsp. agrestis. This should help

  • Sebastian, P. et al. 2010. Cucumber (Cucumis sativus) and melon (C. melo) have numerous wild relatives in Asia and Australia, and the sister species of melon is from Australia. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 107:14269–14273. [as Cucumis melo subsp. agrestis].

Thank you again Sir, but we need to follow any one of the three practices, one is under 'A', another is under 'B' and the third one is under 'C' misleading to me.

Thank you

Thank you Sir, I will follow the same.
However, I have changed the 'title'... hope the thread works as before.
