There seems confusion between Centrosema molle Mart. ex Benth. & Centrosema pubescens Benth. as per the following:

I would suggest to use the name Centrosema molle Mart. ex Benth. than the
Centrosema pubescens Benth. The true d
etails will reach you soon.

Would like to know from … about Centrosema molle Mart. ex Benth. VS. Centrosema pubescens Benth.


I found such kind of note in few sites, including FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) …

———————
Note: It has recently been suggested (see CIAT) that the correct name for the species agronomically known as C. pubescens is Centrosema molle Mart. ex Benth. Consequently, all material of the species agronomically hitherto known as C. pubescens (except cv. Belalto) should be called Centrosema molle Mart. ex Benth., and all material of the species agronomically hitherto known as C. schiedeanum should be called Centrosema pubescens Benth. The change would apply, for example, to all 1208 accessions of C. pubescens and 49 accessions of C. schiedeanum registered in the World Catalogue of Centrosema Germplasm (Schultze-Kraft et al. 1989). Schultze-Kraft R; Williams RJ; Coradin L; Lazier JR; Kretschmer, Jr, AE. 1989.
