I always thought "Moon Valley" was a common name for Pilea mollis but I see that MOBOT shows it as a cultivar: http://www.missouribotanicalga... and they note the following in their description:

" 'Moon Valley' is also commonly sold in commerce as a cultivar of Pilea involucrata, but synonymity has not been conclusively determined."

So, should our database listing for P. Mollis be changed to show Moon Valley as the cultivar name?
And what about P. involucrata, should the cultivar name remain with that one?

Moon Valley (Pilea mollis)
Friendship Plant (Pilea ovalis 'Moon Valley')
