---------------------


Note: Nom. illeg. When Hartley and Stone transferred Euodia parvifolia to Melicope, they proposed this name because M. parvifolia was pre-empted; however, the synonyms P. sessilis and P. apoda, both legitimate names, were not considered for the new combination. See Hartley, Allertonia 8: 288. 2001
