Description: Another example of an incorrect match due to a homonym. Occurrence from Costa Rica is attributed to _Diospyros whitei_ Dows.-Lem. & Pannell which is an African species (Dowsett-Lemaire F, Pannell CM (1996) A New Diospyros (Ebenaceae) from the Congo Republic. Bulletin Du Jardin Botanique National De Belgique 65: 399-403. doi: 10.2307/3668461.)

The verbatim occurrence identifies the specimen as _Diospyros whitei_ S. Knapp (Knapp S (1997) Two New Species of Diospyros (Ebenaceae) from Mesoamerica. Novon 7(3): 256-260. doi: 10.2307/3391940.) which is from Costa Rica, and has since been renamed as _Diospyros panamensis_ (Knapp S (1999) A New Name and a New Lectotypification in Neotropical Plants (Ebenaceae, Solanaceae). Novon 9(4): 524-525. doi: 10.2307/3392155.) and subsequently treated as a subspecies _Diospyros juruensis_ subsp. _panamensis_ (S.Knapp) B.Walln. by Wallnöfer (Wallnöfer B (2012) A revision of neotropical Diospyros (Ebenaceae): part 5.

The new backbone has both names apparently correctly:

Matching the occurrences against the right species name though is still blocked by an authorship aware matching service, see PF-2409
