Modern name

Elliottia pyroliflora (Bong.) S.W.Brim & P.F.Stevens


Cladothamnus pyroliflora Bong.

See Cladothamnus, Volume I, page 629. In view of the remark in the introductory note on page 629, it should be added that Ledum is not related to Elliottia, even though in some classifications they are placed in the same group and have in common a corolla with free petals, an unusual feature in the Ericaceae.
