  • APC Comment: The authorship for Stellaria media is sometimes given as "(L.) Cirillo". However, D.M.L.Cirillo, Essent. Pl. Char. Comment. xxxvi (1784), indicates but does not validly make the combination as he does not definitely associate the genus name and specific epithet (ICBN Art. 33.1 (Vienna Code, 2006)).
