taxonomic synonym: Vincetoxicum Wolf legitimate
  • Comment: Mueller lists "Vincetoxicum = Cynanchum.". Since both genera are accepted by Mueller on p. 93 of the Systematic Census (1882) and also on p. 158 of his Second Systematic Census, it is assumed that this synonymy was reconsidered between this Supplement and the Second Systematic Census.
