Psidium ID (angulatum, Acutangulum ?)
« on: August 27, 2017, 04:56:58 PM »
So i am a bit confused.

if i remember right, i got seeds from here...
http://www.tradewindsfruit.com/psidium-acutangulum-para-guava-seeds

and the leaves DO look similar
the problem is, i cant find any authority that can confirm this
often, i search for this plant, and the leaves look just like regular guava leaves.

Once or twice, i found a site showing similar leaves
but the plant was named "Angulatum", not " Acutangulum "

If someone can ID the pics of my plant
at bottom
i would appreciate it

I will leave a few links i found searching
none of which really have helped much...

--------------------------

if you search for Psidium  Acutangulum
USDA.gov website snames  Psidium acutangulum
https://www.ars.usda.gov/pacific-west-area/hilo-hi/daniel-k-inouye-us-pacific-basin-agricultural-research-center/tropical-plant-genetic-resources-and-disease-research/docs/guava-collection/

EOL lists acutangulum, but as  Psidium persoonii
http://eol.org/pages/5454467/details


Global Biodiversity Information Facility - says this...
Accepted Name:  Psidium acutangulum Mart. ex DC.
Synonym =Psidium persoonii McVaugh
https://www.gbif.org/species/5420631

Psidium Angulatum
https://www.gbif.org/species/5929646


The  PLant list, lists   Acutangulum , but not Angulatum
http://www.theplantlist.org/1.1/browse/A/Myrtaceae/Psidium/

as does "The Ferns"
http://tropical.theferns.info/query.php?full=psidium

But... Wiki Species lists Angulatum, but not Acutangulum
https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Psidium_angulatum

My plant...
