No such thing. That's another one of those made up scientific names, like "Hemigraphis traian" or "Ludwigia peruensis" that have little if any basis in reality. If it were real - even as a synonym - it would show up here:

But it doesn't. Not anywhere! I even asked a specialist on Amaranthaceae about that name one time, and he'd never heard of it.
