Nomenclatural Notes



Eponymy: This species is named for Douglas Edward Soltis, who, in addition to his early biosystematic work on Sullivantia Torr. & Gray and the Heuchera group of genera, contributed the earliest molecular-systematic studies on saxifrages, greatly improving our understanding of their natural relationships and providing molecular evidence on the importance of hybridization in their history. doi:10.1600/036364415X688853
