status

 

Melastoma hirtum Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 390. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in America meridionali." RCN: 3071.

Type not designated.

Original material: [icon] in Plukenet, Phytographia: t. 264, f. 1. 1694; Almag. Bot.: 40. 1696 - Typotype: Herb. Sloane 99: 115 ( BM-SL)  .

Current name: Clidemia hirta (L.) D. Don  ( Melastomataceae  ).

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

Wickens (in Polhill, Fl. Trop. E. Africa, Melastomataceae  : 74. 1975) indicated unspecified material in LINN as type, but 559.2 was a 1758 acquisition from Browne, and 559.3 was also received after 1753. Some later authors, too, have accepted one sheet or the other as the type but neither can be accepted as a neotype because original material is in existence.
