Woehleria serpyllifolia Griseb  . in Abh. Königl. Ges. Wiss. Göttingen 9: 11. 1860 – Holotype: CUBA. Monteverde, Jan–Jul 1859, Wright 1396 (GOET barcode GOET000090 [image!]; isotypes: BM barcode BM000993129 [image!], BR barcode 0 0 0 0 0 5844029 [image!], GH barcode 0 0 0 37157 [image!], K barcodes K000583054 [image!] & K000583055 [image!], P barcode P00622605 [image!], PH barcode 0 0 0 29457 [image!], YU barcode YU.068892 [image!]).

Note. – The name Iresine  serpyllifolia is pre-occupied because Iresine serpyllifolia (Poir.) Moq  . was published by Moquin- Tandon (1849: 341), merging a species originally described in the genus Achyranthes  to a very widely circumscribed genus Iresine  . Based on current phylogeny-based genus concepts, this taxon is a Caribbean member of the genus Alternanthera  with the accepted name A. serpyllifolia (Poir.) Urb.
