scientific name

Leucas zeylanica (L.) R. Br.
status

 

Phlomis indica Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 586. 1753.

"Habitat in India." RCN: 4277.

Neotype (Paton in Jarvis & al. in Taxon 50: 516. 2001): India. Nilgiri Hills, Pykura, 1878, G. King s.n. (K).

Current name: Leucas zeylanica (L.) R. Br.  ( Lamiaceae  ).

Note: This name has been out of use for many years. From Linnaeus’ lengthy description, he evidently had material available to him but this is now lost. It seems very likely that this name referred to the same species which Linnaeus described as P. zeylanica  in 1753, and a neotype was chosen by Paton to formalise this, with P. indica  falling into the synonymy of L. zeylanica  .
