Vicia angustifolia


Is it Vicia angustifolia L. (syn. of Vicia sativa subsp. nigra (L.) Ehrh.) or Vicia angustifolia L. ex Reichard as per The Plant list: http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/search?q=Vicia+angustifolia ?


To me it looks that Vicia sativa subsp. nigra (L.) Ehrh be used as The Plant List seems to be more confused as it is in most other cases. Under the accepted names it cites the synonyms where Reichard is missing.
