NYUR-uh-KANTH-us — spiny vein
commonly known as: three-veined
botanical names: Neuracanthus tetragonostachyus subsp. trinervius (Wight) Bidgood
if N. trinervis is synonym, than what is the correct name..
It is Neuracanthus tetragonostachyus subsp. trinervius (Wight) Bidgood [unresolved] … synonym: Neuracanthus trinervius Wight … as put at The Plants List.
Preferred to put Neuracanthus trinervius Wight because we are yet familiar with this name rather than the unresolved name.
Neuracanthus tetragonostachyus subsp. trinervius (Wight) Bidgood is an unresolved species name according to “the plant list” but has listed Neuracanthus trinervius as a synonym of this species.
The type of Neuracanthus is N. tetragonostachyus and in The Plant list it is put as the unresolved name or synonym with some Justicia species i guess which is mistaken for N. tetragonostachys instead of N. tetragonostachyus Nees.
now coming to the name N. trinervius Wight, i consider it is the correct name instead of putting under species tetragonostachyus
The combination was made in an important paper in 1998 by Sally Bidgood <http://pubget.com/search?q=authors%3A%22Sally%20Bidgood%22&from=pgtmp…> and R K Brummitt <http://pubget.com/search?q=authors%3A%22R%20K%20Brummitt%22&from=pgtm…> Kew Bulletin <http://pubget.com/search?q=latest%3AKew+Bulletin&from=pgtmp_jstor4110453> 53 (1): 1-76 <http://pubget.com/search?q=issn%3A0075-5974+vol%3A53+issue%3A1&from=p…> (1998)
in which they revised the whole genus. Simply because The Plant List have not been able to resolve it (not rejected it) it is logical that we follow the combination
