Solanaceae Source

A global taxonomic resource for the nightshade family


Solanaceae Source aims to provide names lists, species descriptions, specimen collections and publication lists for the genus Solanum. Data is currently being compiled and will continue to be updated and added to for the duration of the project.

The Solanaceae Source index of names is adapted from a list collated and maintained by Michael Nee (NY). In addition to names, Nee's list contains extensive nomenclature and type information gathered from consulting numerous herbaria. This additional information is not currently displayed on Solanaceae Source, but can be made available on request.

The names list on Solanaceae Source is a work in progress. Synonymy and nomenclature information are considered authoritative only for names that are accompanied by a full species description. For accepted names that do not yet have a species description, synonymy should be considered provisional.
