Derivation of the botanical name:
Viola, a classical Latin name for violets.
arvensis, arvum, field, cultivated land, plowed land; ensis, country or place of origin or habitat; of cultivated fields.
Viola arvensis is sometimes hard to distinguish from variants of Viola tricolor, and even more so from hybrids between these two taxa. In critical cases the average number of pores on the pollen grains should be investigated.
