MERRILL () has pointed out that SPRENGEL apparently intended only to transfer to Leea the plant depicted by RUMPHIUS (). LINNAEUS () included this plate in the synonymy of Aralia chinensis following the interpretation of STICKMAN (). Unfortunately SPRENGEL’ good intentions went astray as he effectively renamed Aralia chinensis L. () and did not name the plant from Ambon.
