Caution -- The botanical names given by Myanmar authors, particularly the indigenous medical practitioners, should be taken with caution. There are cases, where various Myanmar authors gave different names primarily due to the lack of standardisation of the Bur-Myan spellings. Moreover, all Myanmar authors are not very careful about their Myanmar spellings.

Similarly the English common names given by various authors should be taken only as guides because of the lack coordination amongst them. To overcome this drawback in part, I have given the Bur-Myan spellings based on MLC (Myanmar Language Commission) dictionaries using Romabama. You can check these with entries from Chklist:
