Comments:
  • • [a hybrid of C. reticulata × C. medica]
  • • some recent authors treat Osbeck's name as a new combination, C. limon (L.) Osbeck ["limonia"], based on C. medica var. limon L., but Osbeck makes no reference to the Linnaean basionym, nor did he adopt the spelling of the Linnaean epithet, so it does not seem possible to apply Melbourne ICN Art. 41.4
