scientific name

Melanthera nivea (L.) Small
status

 

Bidens nivea Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 833. 1753.

"Habitat in Carolina." RCN: 6025.

Lectotype (Parks in Rhodora 75: 184. 1973): [icon] " Bidens scabra  flore niveo, folio trilobato " in Dillenius, Hort. Eltham. 1: 55, t. 47, f. 55. 1732.

Current name: Melanthera nivea (L.) Small  ( Asteraceae  ).

Note: Reveal & al. (in Bartonia 56: 19. 1990) have argued that only part of the Dillenius illustration designated as the lectotype by Parks was cited under the supposedly “typical” part of Linnaeus’ protologue, arguing for restriction of the type to a single leaf. However, this seems unhelpful and recent authors such as Strother (in Daniel, Fl. Chiapas 5: 73. 1999) and Wagner & Robinson (in Brittonia 53: 557. 2002) follow Parks.
