scientific name

Epiphyllum phyllanthus (L.) Haw.
status

 

Cactus phyllanthus Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 469. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Brasilia, Surinamo, America meridionali." RCN: 3589.

Lectotype (Leuenberger in Görts-Van Rijn & Jansen-Jacobs, Fl. Guianas, ser. A, 18: 17. 1997): [icon] " Cereus Scolopendrii  folio brachiato " in Dillenius, Hort. Eltham. 1: 74, t. 64, f. 74. 1732.

Current name: Epiphyllum phyllanthus (L.) Haw.  ( Cactaceae  ).

Note: Wijnands (Bot. Commelins: 56. 1983) suggested that the cited Dillenius plate could be a suitable type but did not formally designate it as such, while Madsen (in Harling & Andersson, Fl. Ecuador, ser. B, 35: 31. 1989) wrongly treated 633.6 (LINN), a Browne collection not received by Linnaeus until 1758, as the holotype.
