Rulingia borealis, a new combination based on R. malvifolia var. borealis (Malvaceae s.l. or Sterculiaceae)

Rulingia malvifolia Steetz is an illegitimate name since Steetz, in describing R. malvifolia cited Commersonia cygnorum Steud. in synonomy. Pritzel (1901) then described Rulingia malvifolia var. borealis E.Pritz. This variety is here raised to species rank to become R. borealis (E.Pritz.) C.F.Wilkins.
