scientific name

Phlox ovata L.
status

 

Phlox ovata Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 152. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Virginia." RCN: 1211.

Lectotype (Wilbur in Taxon 36: 131. 1987): Herb. Linn. No. 217.10 ( LINN)  , see p. 200.

Current name: Phlox ovata L.  ( Polemoniaceae  ).

Note: Wherry (Genus Phlox  : 100. 1955) treated the Plukenet element as the type, but the voucher collection was subsequently shown to belong to Ruellia caroliniensis (Walt.) Steud.  ( Acanthaceae  ). Wilbur (in Taxon 36: 131. 1987) rejected this choice on the grounds that the plate conflicted with the generic description, and chose 217.10 (LINN) as lectotype in its place. Reveal, however, believed Wherry’s choice to be valid and proposed (in Taxon 38: 515. 1989) P. ovata  for conservation with a conserved type. After a further response from Wilbur (l.c. 39: 297-298. 1990), the Committee for Spermatophyta ruled (l.c. 42: 694. 1993) that Wherry’s choice should be superseded, that Wilbur’s choice was valid, and that the proposal was therefore unnecessary, and not recommended.
