scientific name

Anthurium crenatum (L.) Kunth
status

 

Pothos crenatus Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum, ed. 2, 2: 1373. 1763.

"Habitat in insula S. Thomae." RCN: 7021.

Lectotype (Mayo in Kew Bull. 36: 705. 1982): [icon] " Dracontium acaule  , foliis lanceolatis, serratis " in Plumier in Burman, Pl. Amer.: 27, t. 39. 1756.

Current name: Anthurium crenatum (L.) Kunth  ( Araceae  ).

Note: Specific epithet spelled “crenata” in the protologue.

Lourteig (in Bradea 5: 339. 1990) wrongly treated this as illegitimate, on the grounds that its type ( Burman’s plate) was originally based on the Plumier plate that is the type of P. acaulis Jacq. (1760)  . However, the protologue of Linnaeus’ name did not include P. acaulis  so, as names cannot be made illegitimate through typification, P. crenatus  is legitimate.
