An attempt is made to solve the taxonomic and nomenclatural problems of Solanum khasianum C. B. Cl. and its relatives. S. khasianum C. B. Cl. is considered as conspecific with S. myriacanthum Dunal, which is the acceptable name for this species; S. khasianum C. B. Cl. var. chatterjeeanum Sen Gupta is reduced to S. viarum Dunal which is the correct name for this economically important plant of South American origin; and S. reflexum Schrank and S. platanifolium Hook. are maintained as distinct species. A key is provided to delimit these four South American species.
