Hebecladus weberbaueri Dammer is the oldest name for a common species of the genus Jaltomata (Solanaceae) of the Department Ancash, Peru. To transfer this species to the genus Jaltomata we here select a new specific epithet because the epithet weberbaueri is preoccupied in Jaltomata. We select the specific epithet aijana, and thus the correct name for H. weberbaueri Dammer is now J. aijana. We collected J. aijana nine times during 10 different years of field study in Peru. For J. aijana, geographic distribution, local names, phenology, a description, an illustration, and photographs are provided.

Keywords: Ancash, Hebecladus, Peru, protogyny, self-compatibility.
