Discussion

J. M. Coulter (1890, 1891) reported Passiflora bryonioides (as the synonym P. inamoena A. Gray) from Hidalgo, Texas; that specimen may now be lost or it may have been misidentified. The nearest to southernmost Texas this species is confirmed to occur is about 500 km to the southwest (J. M. MacDougal 1994).
