scientific name

Neolitsea cassia (L.) Kosterm.
status

 

Laurus cassia Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 369. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Malabaria, Sumatra, Java." RCN: 2911.

Type not designated.

Original material: Herb. Hermann 5: 120, No. 146 [icon] ( BM)  ; Herb. Hermann 4: 11, No. 146 ( BM)  ; Herb. Hermann 2: 67, No. 146 ( BM)  ; [icon] in Burman, Thes. Zeylan.: 63, t. 28. 1737; [icon] in Rheede, Hort. Malab. 1: 107, t. 57. 1678.

Current name: Neolitsea cassia (L.) Kosterm.  ( Lauraceae  ).

Note: See Wight (in Hooker’s J. Bot. 2: 340. 1840) for an extensive discussion. Kostermans (in Reinwardtia 4: 246. 1957) says this name is based on Hermann’s specimens via Linnaeus’ Fl. Zeylanica no. 146, and that they represent a mixture of Litsea zeylanica Nees  and "the wild Cinnamomum zeylanicum  ". As they are evidently not part of a single gathering, Kostermans’ subsequent treatment (in Dassanayake & al., Revised Handb. Fl. Ceylon 9: 164. 1995) of the Hermann material as the type does not comply with Art. 9.15 and cannot be accepted as a formal typification.
