scientific name

Lucya tetrandra (L.) K. Schum.
status

 

Peplis tetrandra Linnaeus  , Amoenitates Academicae 5: 378, 413. 1760.

RCN: 2573.

Type not designated.

Original material: Herb. Linn. No. 458.3 ( LINN)  .

Current name: Lucya tetrandra (L.) K. Schum.  ( Lythraceae  ).

Note: This name did not appear in either Syst. Nat., ed. 10, 2 ( May–Jun 1759), Fl. Jamaicensis (Nov 1759) or Pugill. Jam. Pl. (Dec 1759). However, it was an addition to both of the latter dissertations in their reprinted editions in the Amoenitates Academicae in 1760. In Amoen. Acad. 5: 378 (Fl. Jamaicensis) there is a cross-reference to the account in the reprint of Pugill. Jam. Pl. (in Amoen. Acad. 5: 413), where there is a description. Consequently, Howard (in J. Arnold Arbor. 54: 460. 1973) was incorrect to give the date of the name as 1759, nor can the Browne description (there is no figure) be the holotype.
