It appears that Cucurbita lagenaria is a synonym of Lagenaria siceraria.
Try Genus - Langenaria
Species - siceraria
Tradename Maranka

Yes I saw Dinosaur Gourd, Alligator Gourd, Caveman Gourd. Dinosaur is the one I am most familiar with. After it is accepted you can go back and add some of those other common names and any details you know about it and don't forget to add a local report if you have grown it yourself.

I may just be overthinking this thread... but, TK, did the database actually accept the listing as "Langenaria" ? -- because I think the actual spelling is "Lagenaria" and if nothing else that version is also in the database.

Well, it went thru, but has not been accepted. Maybe went to a black hole. I tried the spelling you gave, and it changed maranka to maranca

And then, would not accept that either

It didn't change the spelling. It could not find what you typed so it made a suggestion, but that does not mean that is the correct name. Every listing I find online show Marankas.

Maybe Maranka is just as "also sold as" name that could be added to the gourd already in our database?
I see it advertised as Dinosaur, Caveman, Maranka.

Or why not just add your photo to the generic Lagenaria siceraria page and move it later?
