scientific name

Geophila repens (L.) I.M. Johnst.
status

 

Psychotria herbacea Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum, ed. 2, 1: 245. 1762, nom. illeg.

"Habitat in Indiae utriusque umbrosis roridis." RCN: 1364.

Type not designated.

Original material: Herb. Linn. No. 231.3 ( LINN)  ; [icon] in Rheede, Hort. Malab. 10: 41, t. 21. 1690.

Current name: Geophila repens (L.) I.M. Johnst.  ( Rubiaceae  ).

Note: A later homonym of P. herbacea Jacq. (1760)  and hence illegitimate. Although Verdcourt (in Polhill, Fl. Trop. E. Africa, Rubiaceae  1: 110. 1976) stated that the type was “probably” at LINN (No. 231.3), he did not formally designate it as the type.
