*Solanum sarrachoides Sendtner. Hairy Nightshade, Viscid Nightshade. Phen: Jul-Oct. Hab: Disturbed areas. Dist: Native of South America. Works by Edmonds and associates have established that S. sarrachoides and S. physalifolium Rusby are two distinct species, but both are presently known from North America.

Origin/Endemic status: South America

Taxonomy Comments: Mistaken interpretations of Cronquist's 1991 treatment of Solanum (e.g. by Kartesz 1999) have given rise to the incorrect belief that only S. physalifolium is found in North America. True S. physalifolium is present in the western United States, S. sarrachoides in the Southeast.

Synonymy: = Ar, C, K4, NY, RAB, Va, Knapp et al (2019); = n/a – Pa; = Solanum sarachoides – F, Tn, orthographic error; < Solanum physalifolium Rusby – Il, K1; >< Solanum physalifolium Rusby var. nitidibaccum (Bitter) Edmonds – K3, NE; < Solanum sarrachoides Sendtn. – GrPl, Schilling (1981)
