During systematic studies of Jasminum L. in Kerala, the authors collected a curious species from the wild as well as from cultivation. Critical study based on relevant literature and type material allowed us to identify the plant as J. azoricum L. Consultation of other regional herbaria in India revealed that several similar specimens were erroneously determined as J. flexile and many sheets of J. flexile were identified as J. azoricum. Searching the literature and other regional floras showed considerable confusion about the identity of these two species in India.
