Senegalia rugata (Lam.) Britton & Rose, N. Amer. Fl. 23(2): 120 (1928)
Name Status. Accepted Name
Notes. Maslin et al. (2013: 41): As discussed by Nielsen (1980: 349) the entities described as A. rugata and A. concinna have at times been treated as separate species or as varieties of the one species, but he considered that they are conspecific and correctly applied the name A. concinna to the combined entity. Under Senegalia, however, the correct name for this entity is S. rugata. It is regrettable that the well-known epithet concinna must be replaced, however, it may possibly be reinstated in the future if studies show that it is best to recognize two taxa for what is here called S. rugata. Nielsen (1985: 12 & 1992: 49) misinterpreted Acacia psuedointsia auctt.and therefore regarded it as conspecific with A. concinna (it is conspecific with S. kekapur); subsequently ILDIS erroneously listed S. rugata (as A. concinna) for Singapore.
