Observaciones: "This name had frequently been rejected as a nomen dubium (e.g. by Pedersen in Darwiniana 17: 438. 1967 and Mears & Gillis in J. Arnold Arbor. 58: 62. 1977) before Mears (in Taxon 29: 91. 1980) attempted to dispose of the name by typifying it using material in Herb. Sloane 2: 106 (BM-SL), which he stated would make it a synonym of Alternanthera sessilis (L.) DC. However, his chosen type is not the material from which Sloane's t. 86, f. 2 (which was cited by Linnaeus) was prepared, which is identifiable as A. paronychioides A. St.-Hil. Although Mears' intention was laudable, a neotype cannot be designated when original material exists (Art. 9.11). Iamonico (in Taxon 61: 1326-1327. 2012) formally proposed the rejection of the name which was recommended by the Committee for Vascular Plants (in Taxon 62: 1322. 2013)."
