Re: Dracunculus and Dracunculus

Dear Zach,

as you said Heliconius is a genus of beautifull butterflies that merely feed on certain species of Passiflora.

Heliconia is a SA genus of about 200 species of very nice terrestrial plants with beautifull flowers. Some species are grown allover the tropics because of their durable flowers and restistance agains insect appetire.

Cheers,        Joep

Another example is the genus Heliconia, which applies to butterflies which feast on Passionflowers (Passiflora), and also applies to the a tropical genus in the Zingerberales order, Heliconiaceae family.  These are the “False Bird of Paradise” or “Lobster claws” plants, which have very colorful inflorescences.
The Heliconia butterfly genus is now being called Heliconius, so that helps a little bit.

Yes animals and plants can have same gereric names, like Pieris brassicae is a butterfly eating brassicas, but Pieris japonica is a plant from Ericaceae as i know.

While searching the web for documents I found something that made me scared.
Besides Dracunculus vulgaris and Dracunculus canariense, which we almost all heard about,
I found a document mentioning different species of Dracunculus which are... Nematodes:
Is it admissible for two quite different unrelated taxa to bear the same generic name?
