I saw Bryonia dioica in my old Wild Flowers of the British Isles book (Garrard and Streeter)but as I have been working more recently from Colllins Flower Guide (Streeter, Hart-Davies, Hardcastle, Cole and Harper)and it is down as Bryonia cretica in there, that is what I have used. Has it changed again?
Hi Pete, all my books say Bryonia dioica which is also the iSpot recommended name. Chris
It is Bryonia dioica Jacq. I think the name cretica was short-lived.
It's a lumper/splitter issue. Some taxonomists have considered dioica a subspecies of cretica.
