Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSpelling The original spelling, Ridleia dendiia, was corrected to dendyi because De Laubenfels explicitly stated he named the species after Arthur Dendy. The required spelling (ICZN art. 31.1) for the name is 'name+i', thus has to be dendyi. [details]
