Snow, N., J.W. Dawson†, J. Munzinger & M.W. Callmander (2022). Additional taxonomic and nomenclatural notes on New Caledonian Eugenia (Myrtaceae). Candollea 77: 71–79. In English, English and French abstracts.

Ongoing taxonomic studies on Eugenia L. (Myrtaceae) in New Caledonia revealed a number of taxonomic and nomenclatural issues in need of clarification. A new synonymy is proposed: Schizocalyx neocaledonica Brongn. & Gris is reduced to synonymy under Eugenia ovigera Brongn. & Gris. A new name E. pubiflora N. Snow & Callm. is proposed for the illegitimate name E. calycorectoides Guillaumin. Lectotypes are proposed for 15 names: E. bullata Pancher ex Guillaumin, E. daenikeri Guillaumin, E. ericoides Guillaumin, E. horizontalis Pancher ex Brongn. & Gris, E. huerlimannii Guillaumin, E. kaalensis Guillaumin, E. littoralis Pancher ex Brongn. & Gris, E. littoralis var. deplanchei Brongn. & Gris, E. magnifica Brongn. & Gris, E. paludosa Pancher ex Brongn. & Gris, E. stricta Pancher ex Brongn. & Gris, Jambosa canalensis Guillaumin, Myrtus poimbailensis Guillaumin, Schizocalyx neocaledonica Brongn. & Gris, and Xanthomyrtus pergracilis Diels. A neotype is also designated for Eugenia gacognei Montrouz.
