scientific name

Cystopteris fragilis (L.) Bernh.
status

 

Polypodium filix-fragile Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 1091. 1753.

"Habitat in collibus Europae frigidioris." RCN: 7904.

Lectotype (Copeland in Univ. Calif. Publ. Bot. 16: 56. 1929): Amman 52, Herb. Linn. No. 1251.51 ( LINN)  .

Current name: Cystopteris fragilis (L.) Bernh.  ( Dryopteridaceae  ).

Note: In accordance with Art. 23.8, Ex. 19 of the Code, P. filix-fragile  is to be treated as P. fragile  . Proctor (Ferns Jamaica: 410. 1985) erroneously believed Copeland’s type (as “1251.44”) to have been a post-1753 addition to the collection and designated a cited Plukenet plate as type in its place. However, the type carries both the epithet and “44” written by Linnaeus, along with an Amman label suggesting it was in Linnaeus’ possession long before 1753.
