Senegalia catechu (L.f.) P.J.H.Hurter & Mabb., Mabberley's Plant-book, ed. 3 1021 (2008)
Name Status. Accepted Name
Notes. (1) As noted by Deshpande et al. (2019: 4): Chakrabarty & Gandopadhyay (1996: 606) treated Acacia chundra and Acacia sundra as conspecific with A. (Senegalia) catechu; however, these names are now both referable to Senegalia chundra (see Maslin, Nuytsia 22(6): 466, 2012). Chakrabarty & Gandopadhyay (l.c.) also treated A. polyacantha as conspecific with A. catechu, however, this species is now regarded as a distinct entity, S. polyacantha (see Kshirsagar 2012 and Deshpande et al. 2019: 4). (2) A taxonomic treatment of this species in China is presented in Maslin et al. (2019: 474-475).
