Abrus melanospermus Hassk., Cat. Hort. Bot. Bogor. Alt. 282. (1844)


  • Heterotypic
    • Abrus pulchellus Wall., Numer. List [Wallich] n. 5819, (1831-32) nom. inval. nom. nud.
    • Abrus pulchellus Wall. ex Thwaites, Enum. Pl. Zeyl. [Thwaites] 91. (1859)

Note: If Abrus melanospermus and Abrus pulchellus are conspecific, as detailed by Harder (2000) then A. melanospermus must be the correct combination, as it was validly published the earliest.
