    1. Reviewed by Juergen H. J. F. W. Bredow    Jul 6, 2016

    Action: changed name from "Yucca baccata" to "Yucca flaccida "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "It is clearly evident, that this is not a Yucca baccata, but a Yucca of the section Chaenocarpa series Filamentosae, however probably not the native Y. filamentosa, but rather an cultivated specimen of Y. flaccida, indexed by the characteristic of the leaves including the marginal threads."
