Taxonomy Comments: Centrosema virginianum s.l. in the deep South and the West Indies has leaflets that are characteristically very narrow, (L:W ratios of 8:1 or greater). These are here accorded taxonomic recognition at varietal rank, but need additional study. Broad-leaved C. virginianum var. virginianum co-occurs throughout the distribution of C. virginianum var. angustifolium. There is a second "angustifolium" basionym in the Neotropics, Centrosema angustifolium Kunth.

Synonymy: < Bradburya virginiana (L.) Kuntze – S, S13; < Centrosema virginianum (L.) Benth. – Bah, Fl3, FNA11.1, K1, K3, K4, WH3
