C.A. Stace discussed the nomenclature of x Triticosecale in Taxon
36;445-452.  Quoting from the abstract: "
The correct nothogeneric name for plants derived from the Triticum x Secale
crosses is x Triticosecale Wittmack ex A. Camus.  No correct name at
speciees level is available for the commonest crop triticales.  It is
recommended that crop triticales be named by appending the cultivar name to
the nothogeneric name, e.g., x Triticosecale 'Newton'."
