Iochroma

I could not find a listing at Catalogue of Life for either I. coccinea or the "Also sold as" I coccineum

Could it be a listing for this plant?

Iochroma gesnerioides 'Coccineum'

which I found on Wikipedia, no idea what it is.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

This Kew page lists the original name as accepted

http://powo.science.kew.org/ta...

The Plant List has it as unresolved.

I was curious when I saw it at the Vintage Green Farms website listed as Iochroma (Iochroma fuchsioides)

https://tom-piergrossi.squares...

Yes, I saw that the Plant list shows both I. coccinea and I. coccineum as Unresolved names:

It's a puzzle. I created the entry 5 years ago, Evan edited the name 2 years ago, and Lin added plant data 2 years ago. We all must have found evidence of its existence then. Sue's photo is from Annie's Annuals, so that's probably where the whole process originated. In that time it could have become a synonym that was later ignored in subsequent CoL updates as obsolete.

Now that we've established that this species no longer exists (if it ever did), I've edited the entry. We didn't have a generic entry for Iochroma, so this is now it.

Just an FYI at this point but Iochroma coccinea was an accepted name up to the 2016 COL. http://www.catalogueoflife.org...

Thank you, Evan. That explains why we created and edited the entry and added data to it. I wonder what happened to the name between 2016 and now. Confused

I don't know but at least we have a trail if it becomes accepted again. Green Grin!
