The Universal Botanist and Nurseryman, Vol. I - 1770
This description is taken from Linnaeus' Species Plantarum, and referred to a plant similar to Rosa cymosa Trattinick (R. microcarpa Lindley).

Lindley wrote that he could not find a Rosa species that fit Linnaeus' description. He then recycled "indica" for a different species.

Therefore, Rosa indica L is not the same as R. indica Lindl.
