Interpretive Summary: Many changes have been made in recent years to the scientific names applied to species related both closely and distantly to the sweetpotato and the relationships among these species. In order to minimize the need for extensive scientific name changes, including that of the sweetpotato, this articles suggests the need to adopt an alternative species , Ipomoea triloba, as the species to be used as the 'type'.

Technical Abstract: This article proposes that Ipomoea triloba L. be adopted as the conserved type species for the genus Ipomoea. Ipomoea triloba is one of the most closely related species to I. batatas. The adoption of I. triloba as type species will allow future studies to re-assess the generic delimitation within tribe Ipomoeeae, without the fear of destabilizing the nomenclature of the group, in particular the species with greatest economic importance (Ipomoea batatas).
