Talk:Citrullus colocynthis

It originally bore the scientific name Colocynthis citrullus, but is now classified as Citrullus colocynthis.

This is wrong, according to e.g. [1]:

Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum. & Nakai var. lanatus [=Colocynthis citrullus L.] is the cultivated watermelon, and can have Egusi phenotype. On the other hand, Citrullus colocynthis Schrad. is a different Citrullus species (commonly called colocynth)(...)

Ambiguous link[edit]

Should confectio hamech be changed to catholicon (electuary)? It points to a disambig page which leads to the latter. I think that catholicons include the confectio hamech, but I could be wrong. Also, I suppose the worms linked to are of the intestinal parasite variety? -- Mithent 02:04, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

  • A confectio hamech is a "double catholicon", I believe. I've fixed the redirect. — BRIAN0918 • 2006-06-15 02:12

I cannot see the relevance of a Bible reference in this section. It might be better moved to a more appropriate section, or, I feel, covered in a different article which deals with Bible scripture instead. I'm not quite so bold so as to plain remove the sentence, and so I leave the tag instead. (talk) 18:08, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
