scientific name

Galium bermudense L.
status

 

Galium bermudense Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 105. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Virginia." RCN: 880.

Lectotype (Reveal & al. in Huntia 7: 234. 1987): [icon] " Rubia  tetraphyllos glabra latiore folio Bermudensis, seminibus binis atropurpureis" in Plukenet, Phytographia: t. 248, f. 6. 1692; Almag. Bot.: 324. 1696. - Typotype: Dickinson s.n., Bermuda (32: 82, BMSL).

Current name: Galium bermudense L.  ( Rubiaceae  ).

Note: Britten (in J. Bot. 47: 41-42. 1909) discussed this name in detail, concluding that it should be used in the sense of the Plukenet plate, and making the combination Relbunium bermudense (L.) Britten  to accompany it. However, he did not explicitly designate a type though Reveal & al. subsequently did so. Weatherby & Blake (in Rhodora 18: 193. 1916) proposed that the name be rejected as a nomen confusum; see Gillis & Proctor (in Sida 6: 59. 1975). Although evidently a mixture with G. pilosum Aiton  , typification has subsequently established correct usage of the name.
