scientific name

Taraxacum officinale Weber
status

 

Leontodon taraxacum Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 798. 1753.

"Habitat in Europae pascuis." RCN: 5837.

Lectotype (Richards in Taxon 34: 634. 1985): Herb. Linn. No. 280 ( LAPP)  .

Current name: Taraxacum officinale Weber  ( Asteraceae  ).

Note: Although Arevschatian (in Bot. Zhurn. 69: 1383. 1984) indicated unspecified material in LINN as the type of T. officinale  , L. taraxacum  was not cited in synonymy. Even if the relationship between these two names is inferred, the statement does not distinguish between sheets 953.1 and 953.2 (LINN), which are not part of a single gathering, so Art. 9.15 does not apply. This is not a valid type choice and Richards’ typification appears to be the earliest.
