Annotation: Combining Mimosa ynga into Inga does not technically create a tautonym, as has been the tradtional interpretation, including the interpretation by Martius, who proposed the nom. nov., Inga edulis, to reflect the widespread use of the sarcostemma (aril) around the seeds for human consumption. Although technically a superfluous name, Inga edulis Mart. has been so long used as a legitimate replacement name, that in the spirit of Article 53.3 (“If established practice has been to treat two similar names as homonyms, this practice is to be continued if it is in the interest of nomenclatural stability.” ) this should continue to be the current practice.
