Solanum luteoalbum is a species of plant in the Solanaceae family.

S. semicoalitum as described by Bitter is an invalid name for this plant that is sometimes still seen. Altogether, the following synonyms are assigned to this species:[1]

  • Cyphomandra luteoalba (Pers.) A.Child
  • Cyphomandra luteoalbum (Pers.) A.Child ex Bohs
  • Solanum luteoalbum var. tunya J.F.Macbr.
  • Solanum pubescens Ruiz & Pav. (non Willd.: preoccupied)

The mysterious S. semicoalitum was classified as Critically Endangered endemic of Ecuador by the IUCN, before it was synonymized with the more widespread S. luteoalbum.[2]
