Taxonomic Notes on the Indian Coral Tree (Erythrina variegata L. Var. Orientalis Merr.)
The paper deals with the taxonomic treatment, nomenclature, exhaustive synonymy and distribution of the Indian Coral Tree (Erythrina variegata L. var. orientalis Merr.). A key to the various forms is provided, together with notes on their systematics and distribution. Erythrina mysorensis Gamble is considered here as a part of Erythrina variegata L. var. orientalis complex and is, therefore, reduced to forma mysorensis (Gamble) Maheshwari, stat. nov. The most common and widespread form of this tree is treated as forma orientalis (L.) Maheshwari, stat. nov. Some new names are also proposed.
