scientific name

Hemionitis rufa (L.) Sw.
status

 

Pteris rufa Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 1074. 1753.

"Habitat in America septentrionaliore." RCN: 7777.

Lectotype (Proctor, Ferns Jamaica: 212. 1985): [icon] " Filix minor  ruffa lanugine tota obducta, in pinnas tantum divisa, raras, non crenatas subrotundas" in Sloane, Voy. Jamaica 1: 87, t. 45, f. 1. 1707. - Typotype: Herb. Sloane 1: 96 ( BM-SL)  .

Current name: Hemionitis rufa (L.) Sw.  ( Pteridaceae  ).

Note: Specific epithet spelled “ruffa” in the protologue.

Although Acrostichum rufum L. (1759)  has been treated as a new combination based on Pteris rufa  by some authors, this is unjustified as there is no direct reference to the earlier name in the protologue of A. rufum  , and P. rufa  also appears in the same work (1759), as noted by Tryon & Stolze (in Fieldiana, Bot. 22: 47. 1989). Linnaeus did, however, treat the two names as synonymous in 1763.
