[C] Cuphea P. Browne, Civ. Nat. Hist. Jamaica 216. 10 Mar 1756.
NT.: C. decandra W. T. Aiton (Hortus Kew. ed. 2. 3: 151. Oct-Nov 1811) (vide S. A. Graham, Taxon 17: 536. 22 Oct 1968)
None of the species occurring in Jamaica is fully in accordance with the protologue. According to Graham (Taxon 50: 487-490. 2001) the choice of C. decandra is more appropriate than Swart's designation (ING card 20706. Jun 1965) of C. viscosissima (Hortus Bot. Vindob. 2: 83. 1772-1773).
