Comments:
  • • non Centrosema pubescens Benth., now accepted in a more restricted sense for a species that does not include common centro
  • • a proposal for conservation (nom. cons.) with a conserved type (Melbourne ICN Art. 14.9) was withdrawn, as it did not gain support among agricultural workers, therefore the typification of Bentham's name by Fantz (1996) on an element equivalent to C. schiedeanum (Schltdl.) R. J. Williams & R. J. Clem., makes C. pubescens Benth. the earliest name for that species and unavailable for the common centro
