It doesn't take much to confuse me and I'm really Confused with two plants listed in our database so I'm hoping someone can clarify things. Earlier I updated information in the database for the plant Euodia hortensis. I don't know a thing about that plant but came across mention of it in a post so I looked for it in the database. When I saw that the entry was lacking data, I began to google to see what I could find. LOL, maybe I should have left it alone because I got more and more confused! Smiling The data I entered was approved but I think the name of the plant may be spelled incorrectly. When I did a google search I stumbled across plants spelled both Evodia and Eudoia so I checked the Catalogue of Life which shows the spelling as Euodia hortensis.

~ Our database has listings for 11 plants spelled Euodia and according to the CoL, Euodia tietaensis is an accepted name but it shows all the others listed below in our database as synonyms for other genera.

Euodia fraxinifolia
Euodia glabrifolia
Euodia lunuankenda
Euodia macrocarpa
Evodia (Euodia officinalis)
Euodia quercifolia
Euodia robusta
Evodia (Euodia rutaecarpa)
Wu Zhu Yu (Euodia ruticarpa)
Euodia simplicifolia
Euodia tietaensis

~ Our database also has a listing of these 8 plants spelled Evodia, none of which are listed at the CoL site:
Evodia cuspidata
Evodia daniellii
Evodia hortensis
Evodia hylandii
Evodia montana
Evodia pubifolia
Evodia tietaensis
Evodia whitmorei

CoL only lists 3 Evodia, but shows all as synonyms.

I hope this doesn't cause a lot of extra work but I thought one of the database administrators might know what's what with these two plants.

Thanks so much for always being here to assist and for your tireless efforts in helping to keep the garden.org plant database the best on the internet!
