Mathieu, G. (2020). Peperomia leptostachya (Piperaceae) revived. Candollea 75: 45–49. In English, English abstract.
For about forty-five years a far too heterogenous concept of Peperomia blanda (Jacq.) Kunth has been adopted. A strong plea is made to apply the name Peperomia leptostachya Hook. & Arn. for a species with a wide distribution in the paleotropics and to limit the use of the name Peperomia blanda to a neotropical species from northern Venezuela. Several new synonyms of Peperomia leptostachya are presented.
