scientific name

Albuca canadensis (L.) F.M. Leight.
status

 

Ornithogalum canadense Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 308. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Africa." RCN: 2408.

Replaced synonym of: Albuca major L. (1762)  , nom. illeg.

Lectotype ( Müller-Doblies in Jarvis & al., Regnum Veg. 127: 16. 1993): Herb. Linn. No. 140.5 ( S)  .

Current name: Albuca canadensis (L.) F.M. Leight.  ( Liliaceae  / Hyacinthaceae  ).

Note: Stearn (in Ann. Mus. Goulandris 6: 158, f. 10. 1983) indicated as "suggested lectotype " for Ornithogalum canadense L.  (the basis of A. major  ) a Cornut plate, but as he also added "but Linn. Herb. 426.1...possible", this cannot be accepted as an unequivocal choice of type. The name was formally typified by U. Müller-Doblies in 1993 but subsequently (see Feddes Repert. 105: 367. 1994; 117: 116. 2006) informally rejected as a nomen confusum (as the basionym of Albuca canadensis  ) in favour of A. maxima Burm.  f. (1768). However, no formal proposal for the rejection of the name appears to have been made.
