I went looking for a plant I know as Senecio kleinia today to add a flower picture. According to the CoL it is a synonym for Kleinia neriifolia (a provisionally accepted name)

http://www.catalogueoflife.org...

which I have found in our database here with the common name mountain grass, but no other info.

Mountain Grass (Kleinia neriifolia)

That confuses me a bit because the plant I'm talking about is not at all grass but a sort of large bush or shrub with summer-deciduous leaves.

So before I remodel this entry I would like to confirm that I am not overwriting some other plant by mistake. Is anyone else familiar with this plant or the so-called mountain grass? I'm all ears!

I am familiar with the Senecio/Kleinia change (not the first time the plant has switched) and the name Kleinia neriifolia works for me. Should I fill up this entry with the details I know about the shrub (including the synonym)? Any feedback would be welcome.

Hi Baja,

I'm not familiar with either plant, but given that the common name is the only piece of info on the Kleinia entry, I'd go ahead and propose your changes.
