scientific name

Calopogon tuberosa (L.) Britton
status

 

Limodorum tuberosum Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 950. 1753.

"Habitat in America septentrionali." RCN: 6869.

Lectotype (Mackenzie in Rhodora 27: 194. 1925): Clayton 76 (BM-000051136).

Generitype of Limodorum Linnaeus  , nom. rej.

Current name: Calopogon tuberosa (L.) Britton  & al. ( Orchidaceae  ).

Note: Limodorum Linnaeus  , nom. rej. against Limodorum Boehm.  Calopogon R. Br.  is a conserved name.

Fernald (in Rhodora 23: 132. 1921) stated that this "rests chiefly upon and draws its specific name directly from … Martyn t. 50". However, we believe that this is insufficiently precise to be accepted as a valid typification (which is fortunate as the illustration is of Bletia purpurea (Lam.)  DC.). Luer (Native Orch. Florida: 58. 1972) and Boivin (in Phytologia 42: 397. 1979) follow Mackenzie.
