Nomenclatural Notes

(as 'aphyonota')


Etymology: ‘The epithet … aphyonota is a combination of Greek words aphyo (pale, bleached) and notos (back) and alludes to the pale non-display side of the standard petal’. [The author intended to use aphyonota as a feminine adjective to agree with the feminine gender of the genus name Glycine. Since notos is a noun, it does not decline, and ‘aphyonota’ is corrected to aphyonotos]
