scientific name

Pharus latifolius L.
status

 

Pharus resupinatus Linnaeus  , Flora Jamaicensis: 21. 1759.

"Habitat [in Jamaica.]"

Type not designated.

Original material: [icon] in Browne, Civ. Nat. Hist. Jamaica: 344, t. 38, f. 3. 1756.

Current name: Pharus latifolius L.  ( Poaceae  ).

Note: Pharus latifolius  was published in May–June 1759 and therefore pre-dates P. resupinatus L. (Dec 1759)  . The latter appears to have been coined in error, for although Linnaeus included it in the reprint of Fl. Jamaicensis (in Amoen. Acad. 5: 382. 1759), he subsequently omitted it from Sp. Pl., ed. 2, 2: 1408 (1763), referring only to P. latifolius  . However, as P resupinatus  was not based on exactly the same elements as P. latifolius  , it is a heterotypic synonym of the earlier name, rather than illegitimate and homotypic with it.
