Interpretive Summary: An ornamental tree of the bean family was discovered to lack a valid scientific name. A new scientific name was created so that the tree could be universally identified.

Technical Abstract: A new generic name, Barnebydendron, is proposed for Phyllocarpus Riedel ex Tul. which is an illegitimate, later homonym of Phyllocarpus Riedel ex Endl.
