Linum usitatissimum L.
status

 

Linum usitatissimum Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 277. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat hodie inter segetes Europae australis." RCN: 2204.

Lectotype (Seegeler in Taxon 38: 278, f. 1. 1989): Herb. Clifford: 114, Linum  1 (BM-000558456)  .

Generitype of Linum Linnaeus  (vide Hitchcock, Prop. Brit. Bot.: 143. 1929).

Current name: Linum usitatissimum L.  ( Linaceae  ).

Note: Kulpa & Danert (in Kulturpflanze 3: 342. 1962) indicated a Brander collection (396.1 LINN), not received by Linnaeus until 1756, as type but it cannot be original material for the name. Rechinger (Fl. Iranica 106: 17. 1974) indicated Clifford material as “syntypi”, but the two sheets preserved at BM are not a single collection so Art. 9.15 does not apply. Seegeler is therefore the first to have made an explicit choice of lectotype.
