Abstract

The synonymy of the South American climber Araujia sericifera Brot., which is widely naturalized in temperate and subtropical regions, is clarified. Plants of this species have been commonly referred to as A. sericofera (an incorrect orthographic variant) or as A. hortorum Fourn. Lectotypes are designated for A. sericifera Brot., A. hortorum Fourn. and Physianthus albens C. Martius.
