Escallonia rigida

Catalogue of Life shows 0 listings for Escallonia rigida and upon googling I found the following listings for Escallonia x rigida:
http://www.theplantlist.org/tp...
http://www.missouribotanicalga...
http://www.tela-botanica.org/b...

But I also found two listings at Tropicos for E. rigida
http://www.tropicos.org/Name/5...
http://www.tropicos.org/Name/2...

Confused

Thanks for the heads up and the links you've provided Lin. It does appear that this plant is a hybrid cross, or cultivar of horticultural origin and therefor wouldn't appear in the COL. I'll dig into this further.
