scientific name

Microsorum scolopendria (Burm. f.) Copel.
status

 

Polypodium phymatodes Linnaeus  , Mantissa Plantarum Altera: 306. 1771, nom. illeg.

"Habitat in India orientali." RCN: 7860.

Replaced synonym: Polypodium scolopendria Burm. f. (1768)  .

Type not designated.

Current name: Microsorum scolopendria (Burm. f.) Copel.  ( Polypodiaceae  ).

Note: A superfluous name for Polypodium scolopendria Burm. f. (1768)  , with which P. phymatodes  is therefore homotypic. Roux (in Bothalia 29: 106. 1999) treated 1251.6 (LINN) as the holotype of P. phymatodes  , but as there is no indication that it came from Burman, it seems most unlikely that it can be original material for P. scolopendria  . Verdcourt (in Beentje, Fl. Trop. E. Africa, Polypodiaceae  : 24. 2001) indicated Pryon s.n. (G) as lectotype but this was published after 1 Jan 2001 and so the omission of the phrase "designated here" or an equivalent (Art. 7.11) means that the choice is not effective.
