Solanum bahamense, commonly known as the Bahama nightshade,[1] is a plant in the nightshade family. It is native across the West Indies, from the Florida Keys east to Dominica (excluding Hispanola).[2] It is a common species in coastal habitats, often on calcareous soils.[2]

Taxonomy

Originally described by Carl Linnaeus, it has a convoluted taxonomic history. S. bahamense is known by many junior synonyms and involved in several cases of homonymy.[3]

Some additional varieties of S. bahamense have been described, but they are not considered taxonomically distinct today:[3]

  • Solanum bahamense var. inerme Dunal
  • Solanum bahamense var. lanceolatum Griseb. (Not to be confused with S. lanceolatum.)
  • Solanum bahamense var. luxurians D'Arcy
  • Solanum bahamense var. rugelii D'Arcy
  • Solanum bahamense var. subarmatum (Willd.) O.E.Schulz
