Boerhavia scandens Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 3. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Jamaica ad urbem jago de la vega." RCN: 19.

Lectotype (Kellogg in Howard, Fl. Lesser Antilles 4: 178. 1988): [icon] "Solanum bacciferum Americanum fructu corymboso, ex Insula Jamaicensi" in Plukenet, Phytographia: t. 226, f. 7. 1692; Almag. Bot.: 349. 1696. - Typorype: Herb. Sloane 98: 51, top left specimen ( BM-SL)  .

Current name: Boerhavia scandens L.  ( Nyctaginaceae  ).

Note: Fawcett & Rendle (Fl. Jamaica 3: 149. 1914) indicated an unspecified type in BM, possibly Plukenet material that was not seen by Linnaeus and is not original material for the name. Meikle (in Notes Roy. Bot. Gard. Edinburgh 36: 245. 1978) indicated material in LINN as type but did not distinguish between sheets 9.5 and 9.6, which are not part of a single gathering so Art. 9.15 does not apply. They are, in any case, both post-1753 additions to the herbarium and not original material.
