Pseudocaryopteris foetida (D.Don) P.D.Cantino, from near Bhageshwar in Uttaranchal Pradesh....and the problem of synonyms without authority:  
Firstly let us hope I am correct in identifying this plant correctly as Pseudocaryopteris foetida (D.Don) P.D.Cantino, on the basis of similar plant at Flowers of India, but it again highlights the problems of not citing the author names of accepted names and synonyms.
I went on to confirm from publications on net and websites. All references to its commonest synonym landed me to a much different plant, now correctly known as Clerodendrum bungei Steud., since its synonym (the commonest name on the net) Clerodendrum foetidum Bunge is an illegitimate name.
But as it now appears our plant is (if my identification is correct) what was described in FBI as Caryopteris grata (Wall. ex Walp.) Benth. & Hook.f. ex C.B.Clarke, with Clerodendrum foetidum D. Don as its synonym, and now named as Pseudocaryopteris foetida (D.Don) P.D.Cantino, a plant much restricted in distribution, mainly in the NW Himalayas, and hardly represented on the net.
..., this paper my be useful to you regarding Pseudocaryopteris foetida.
