Are Rivina humilis and Rivinia humilis the same plant or different?

Rivinia appears to be a fairly common misspelling of Rivina. It's spelled (incorrectly) as Rivinia on The Plant List, which would explain how it got into the database here.

Thanks for pointing it out. Thumbs up

You're welcome, Kent. I wanted to make sure I posted my pictures in the right place. Fortunately, I took these pics at MOSI and they did a blog article featuring this plant and used Rivina humilis so I was pretty sure that was correct.
