Eruca sativa

The Plant List (http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/search?q=Eruca+sativa) has Eruca sativa as a synonym of Eruca vesicaria. I have seen Rocket listed as Eruca vesicaria agg. due to several subspecies e.g. (T.G. Tutin, Flora Europaea) (a) Subsp. vesicaria: sepals all cucculate, persistent until fruit ripe; anthers subacute; (b) Subsp. sativa: sepals caducous, inner not cucculate; anthers obtuse.
