scientific name

Striga asiatica (L.) Kuntze
status

 

Buchnera asiatica Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 630. 1753.

"Habitat in Zeylona, China." RCN: 4577.

Lectotype (Hepper in Rhodora 76: 46. 1974): Torén, Herb. Linn. No. 790.10, branched specimen ( LINN)  .

Current name: Striga asiatica (L.) Kuntze  ( Scrophulariaceae  ).

Note: Hepper argued that 790.10 (LINN) was collected by Torén in the Comores in 1750 (it is annotated "Ins. Johan."). Saldanha (in Bull. Bot. Surv. India 5: 67-68. 1963) reviewed earlier use of the name and concluded that, as it had been applied to several species, it should be rejected under (the then) Art. 69. Cramer (in Dassanayake & Fosberg, Revised Handb. Fl. Ceylon 3: 400. 1981) also treated the name as ambiguous. However, Musselman & Hepper (in Kew Bull. 41: 207. 1986; Notes Roy. Bot. Gard. Edinburgh 45: 44. 1988) accept S. asiatica  , as do many other authors.
