Sansevieria Thunb. (1794) and Sanseverinia Petagna (1787) are generally regarded as separate generic names, and the former has been conserved over the latter (see App. III of the Vienna Code). However, it is determined that the two are not separate generic names but that Thunberg's Sansevieria is a misspelling of Petagna's Sanseverinia. Nonetheless, Thunberg's spelling is to be retained as required by Art. 14.8 of the Melbourne Code. However, the authorship of Sansevieria should be re-attributed to Petagna.
