Why do you write "but"? I do not see any contradiction.

Without a flower, I guess no human being will be able to tell these
two species apart (if they are not labeled, of course). And even with
a flower, they are sufficiently similar to be regarded as a single
species. The only substantial reason (of doubtful validity) why this
is generally not done is the huge geographic disjunction of the two

Kind regards
