On the identity of Abutilon arboreum (Malvaceae) in Spain.

Abstract

The identity of a recently detected population of Abutilon arboreum in the Valencian area was critically re-assessed. It was shown that the plants in fact belong to the South American A. grandifolium, a species that has become a widespread weed in warm-temperate and subtropical regions across the world.
