Comments:
  • • valid publication verified from original literature
  • • according to W. Greuter (pers. comm. via e-mail on 29 Apr 2011), this name was likely intentionally based on the Greek "elaeagros" meaning wild olive tree, not "elaeagnos", and thus the original spelling is not a correctible orthographic error
Name Verified on: 05-Jul-2011 by ARS Systematic Botanists. Last Changed: 10-May-2012
Species priority site is: Natl. Germplasm Repository - Corvallis (COR)
