Remarks

Britton & A. Brown (Ill. Fl. N.U.S. ed. 2. 2: 586. 7 Jun 1913) also cited L. alternifolia L. as the type species (rejected as a mechanical process; see Melbourne Code Art. 10 Ex. 7). See Proposal to conserve orthography (Ludwigia) by D.H.Nicolson & C.R.Suresh, Taxon 34 (1985) 537-538 and rejection of proposal as unnecessary in Taxon 37 (1988) 447.
