Dioscorea oppositifolia Linnaeus   , Species Plantarum 2: 1033. 1753.

"Habitat in India." RCN: 7460.

Type not designated.

Note: Jayasuriya (in Dassanayake & al., Revised Handb. Fl. Ceylon 9: 67. 1995) incorrectly indicated a König collection (1184.7 LINN) received by Linnaeus long after 1753, as the lectotype. He also excluded (p. 65) from synonymy the only original element (a Petiver plate) for the name.
