Template:Italic title Template:Taxobox

Tabernaemontana alternifolia is a species of plant in the Apocynaceae (dogbane) family. It is endemic to India.


The name Tabernaemontana heyneana Wall. has often been used for this species, and a proposal was made to conserve that name so that it would be used instead of T. alternifolia.<ref name=propsal>Template:Cite journal</ref> Arguments made for conservation were that the type of the species was not a specimen but an illustration, and that the plant has opposite leaves, not alternate leaves as alternifolia implies.<ref name=propsal/> However, the proposal was rejected, and the correct name of this species is the original name, T. alternifolia.<ref>Template:Cite journal</ref>
