Ceropegia jainii and C. rollae (Apocynaceae) at the brink of extinction by R. Kr. Singh- TAPROBANICA, ISSN 1800–427X. February, 2015. Vol. 07, No. 02: pp. 87–90.

Pronouncing the word “Ceropegia”: I come across an article on Wikipedia, which has generated a question in my mind that “Is Ceropegia sero-pegia or kero-pegia?”
Ceropegia is a genus of plants within the family Apocynaceae. It was named by Carl Linnaeus, who first described this genus in volume 1 of his Species plantarum, which appeared in 1753. Linnaeus thought that the flowers looked like a fountain of wax. From this the scientific name was derived: ‘keros’ meaning wax and ‘pege’ meaning fountain (Pooley, 1998). They have many common names including lantern flower, parasol flower, parachute flower, bushman’s pipe, string of hearts, snake creeper, wine-glass vine, rosary vine, and necklace vine.

yes, …, indeed interesting . Until now, we all were pronouncing it as sero-pegia!

seer-oh-PEEJ-ee-uh OR ker-o-PEE-je-uh– From the Greek keros (wax) and pege (fountain), referring to the appearance of the flower clusters.


Good that you brought up this interesting question. Since we are not native to English, we are comfortable calling it as “S”eropegia so far. But the greek pronunciation goes with “k”. I asked your question in another group and an Asclep expert, Mike Haney, also gave the answer that it should be pronounced with a “k”.

Keropegia. Good question, because our spelling rules teach us otherwise.”


Yes … is right, ‘C’ in Latin is pronounced as ‘K’


.

Confusion or submission : Ceropegia (lawii, rollae, sahyadrica & panchganiensis):  As per the plant list, Ceropegia lawii, C sahyadrica and C panchganiensis are all syn of Ceropegia rollae. http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-2712940

Ceropegia lawii (http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Law’s%20Ceropegia.html) are three diffrent and individual species.

Can someone throw light on it.
