Name Status. Accepted Name
Notes. Despite their similar-sounding epithets, M. chundra and M. sundra were independent descriptions based on different types. Some authors (e.g. ILDIS 2005) have treated Acacia sundra (Roxb.) DC. as an orthographic variant of A. chundra (Roxb. ex Rottler) Willd., however, there is no indication in the protologue of the basionym, M. sundra, that this is the case. As discussed by Kshirsagar (2012) Acacia (Senegalia) chundra has had a complex nomenclatural history, sometimes being treated as a distinct species and sometimes treated as either a variety or synonym of A. catechu. Kshirsagar (l.c.) regards A. chundra as a distinct species and cites both A. sundra and A. catechu var. sundra in synonymy. (Fide Maslin 2012: 466).
