Lantana and Lippia: Gordian or Linnaean Knot?

Abstract in a Haiku:
Lantana-Lippia
Two Linnaean genera
One Gordian Knot
Abstract in a limerick:
There once were two genera Linnaean
Intermixed were their species, I'm sayin'
Their phylogeny complete
With subclades replete
PhyloCode retains names with tradition
