This genus is synonymous with Ceiba which is now the accepted name for these plants.

Note: As people named newly identified plants down through the centuries, there were often cases where the same plant was given two or more different names by different taxonomists. The rule is that the first name that was publicly displayed in a book or other publication takes precedence. Once an "accepted name" has been established, all the other names are then referred to as synonyms.
