Paclt, J. (May 1998), (1351) Proposal to amend the gender of Euonymus, nom. cons. (Celastraceae), to feminine. Taxon 47: 473-474 [secondary reference]
  • Text: "Both feminine and masculine gender are used for Euonymus up to the present time. This dual usage is certainly unwanted, and a ruling desirable. Accepting the present proposal will support the widespread, classically correct usage of feminine. Rejecting it will support the original masculine usage of Linnaeus, but may result in continued use of feminine by a good number of modern authors."
