 Comments
       
  Comment: Status of Dioscorea glauca Muhl. ex Bartlett (from 1910) is unclear, though it appears to be a later re-establishment of the name now cited as Dioscorea glauca Muhl. ex L.C. Beck (from the early/mid 1800s). In any case, the name is now considered a synonym of Dioscorea villosa L.
