Nomenclatural Notes

(as Caelospermum)

Remarks

Blume spelled his generic name as: Caelospermum. In Latin caelum (or coelum) means “heaven”, whereas in Greek coelos means hollow. Blume did not explicitly explain the etymology, but his description includes the words “Pyrenae 1-spermae ... intus concavae ...” Therefore, it is evident that he meant hollow-seeded, and Caelospermum is corrected to Coelospermum
